IMPHAL, May 28, 2023 (TBINN)

Manipur’s Chief Minister N. Biren Singh today said nearly 40 armed militants involved in torching houses and firing at civilians have been killed by security forces since they began an operation to bring peace to the North eastern state beset by ethnic rioting.

Biren Singh’s comments came in the backdrop of fresh clashes breaking out between armed groups and security forces at over half a dozen places across Manipur today.

Chief Minister who was interacting with media persons at the state secretariat, claimed the latest round of conflict is not between communities but between Kuki militants and security forces.

Biren Singh also said that there had been cases of armed militants firing at civilians with AK-47s, M-16 and sniper rifles. These militants were targeted by security forces in counter-attacks.

Chief Minister Biren appealed to the public not to hinder the movement of security personnel and urged them to have faith in the government and support the security forces.
