Manipur violence: Mob Targets BJP Leaders’ Homes, Clash Leaves 2 Injured

Manipur Violence: The violence in Manipur hasn’t stopped even after one and a half months. Once again, troublemakers threw stones and caused damage.

Approximately 1,000 people gathered to set fire to the buildings near the palace complex.

In Manipur, troublemakers attacked the BJP office in Thongju on the night of Friday (June 16). They not only threw stones and caused damage to the office, but also broke the fans. Additionally, they pulled out the BJP flags and threw them away.

On Saturday, officials stated that during clashes between mobs and security forces in Imphal city overnight, two civilians got hurt. Furthermore, there were efforts to set fire to the houses of BJP leaders.

There were separate incidents of continuous automatic gunfire throughout the night in Kwakta of Bishnupur district and Kangwai of Churachandpur district in Manipur. Additionally, an attempted robbery took place at the Iringabam police station in Imphal West, but no weapons were stolen.

In light of the tense situation in the state, the former Army Chief has urged Prime Minister Modi, Union Home Minister Amit Shah, and Defense Minister Rajnath Singh to address the matter promptly. Retweeting a tweet by the retired Lieutenant General from Manipur, former Army Chief Ved Prakash Malik emphasized that the law and order situation in Manipur requires immediate attention from the highest authorities.

Approximately 1,000 people gathered to set fire to the buildings near the palace complex.

Another group of people attempted to burn down MLA Biswajit’s house. However, the RAF (Rapid Action Force) used tear gas and rubber bullets to scatter the crowd.

In the late hours of the night, another group of people surrounded the BJP office in Sinjemai. Previously, on June 15, a mob vandalized the residence of Union Minister of State for External Affairs, RK Ranjan Singh, in Imphal. The troublemakers also set fire to two houses in New Checkon on the same night, leading security forces to use tear gas shells. Additionally, the mob set fire to the official residence of Women’s Minister Nemcha Kipjen in the Lamphel area of Imphal on June 14.

It is worth noting that after the rally organized by the Kuki tribal community in Manipur on May 3, violence erupted in the state. This rally was held to oppose the granting of tribal status to the majority Meitei community in the state. As a result of the ongoing violence, over 100 people have lost their lives and more than 300 people have been injured.
