Guwahati:

Violence again escalated in parts of the Manipur Valley, including the state capital Imphal, as protesters clashed with police in several areas. According to reports, batons and tear gas shells were used and several people were injured.

The situation has become more tense since the arrest of five persons in uniform of the security forces and with sophisticated weapons on September 16.

This led to massive protests and demonstrations in the valley areas. Locals had imposed a 48-hour lockdown in the valley since Tuesday, demanding the unconditional release of those detained. There was an unofficial strike on Monday.

This afternoon, women protesters marched to police stations in five valley district areas, demanding the unconditional release of detainees. If not, he demanded to arrest them too.

At many places, angry protesters clashed with the police and other security agencies. The police eventually used lathi charge and tear gas to disperse the crowd. It is reported that many people were injured in this incident.

Clashes broke out between the crowd and the police outside the Sanjami police station, where the police fired tear gas shells. Three people are injured and hospitalized.

In view of the increasingly volatile situation, the state administration has canceled curfew relaxation orders and reimposed prohibitory orders banning large gatherings.

Manipur has been witnessing ethnic violence since early May, in which more than 150 people have been killed.
