Flutter in Imphal; central team in Ch’pur

A central team will be on a stock taking visit to Churachandpur on Tuesday 20 days after an orgy of violence claimed 9 lives in the hills town of Manipur after the assembly cleared three controversial bills.

Official sources told Assam Times that home ministry secretary for internal security Ashok Prasad is arriving in the restive town on Tuesday where the team would assess the situation.

On Monday a state team visited Churachandur to study the situation. But only to be greeted with protest from all sides forcing the team to leave back to Imphal.

On the other hand, the protesters prevented the deputy commissioner from coming inside his residence at the lunch break. As his convoy arrived in front of his residence, the protestors blocked the entrance route disallowing him from taking lunch.

Meanwhile, the bodies of the victims are yet to be accepted by the relatives. All the bodies are said to have been lying intact inside the morgue.
