Imphal: Two of the three injured civilians from Myanmar, brought to Imphal on Friday, are undergoing treatment at the Jawaharlal Nehru Institute of Medical Sciences (JNIMS) Hospital. The other patient was shifted to the Regional Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) hospitals for further treatment.

According to reports, the Myanmar nationals, suspected to be anti-coup protestors, were injured when Myanmar security forces fired indiscriminately near Tamu market in Tamu district, less than 5 km from Moreh town in Tengnoupal district. 

“One patient was shifted to RIMS due to multiple bullet injuries, including chest and abdomen,” said JNIMS medical superintendent Dr Lokeshwor Singh. “Before shifting to the RIMS, we gave him a blood transfusion because the patient arrived in a critical condition,” he added.
