Militants shoot dead village chief, 3 others in Manipur

Imphal: Tension gripped the B Gamnom area in Manipur’s Kangpokpi district after men suspected to be Kuki militants shot dead four civilians, including the chief of MP Khullen village and a minor boy.

The incident happened two days after security forces killed insurgents of the banned Kuki National Liberation Army (KNLA) from nearby villages in the State.

Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh has condemned the incident and termed it as an act of terrorism.

A massive search operation has been launched by state and central forces to track down the attackers.
