Imphal: One person was killed and several others injured in firing between the security forces and armed miscreants at East Pallel in the Tengnoupal district on Friday.

The firing occurred the day the Thoubal and Kakching District Apunba Lup (TAKDAL) announced a statewide shutdown against the government’s failure to solve the Manipur crisis. 

According to sources, the heavy firing exchange between the security forces and armed miscreants occurred in the Thamlapokpi village located towards Moreh around 7 a.m. and continued till 1 p.m. 

After the incident, a scuffle took place when the locals, mostly Meira Paibis, tried to remove the barricade set up by security forces. 

Yengkhom Jiten, 43, reportedly succumbed to head injuries. The deceased was from the Kakching district.
