Speaking to media at Imphal this evening, the Chief Minister said, “There are some hotspots where security forces have been posted. However, there is no such things as buffer zone”.

The chief minister also stated that seven police personnel were suspended in connection with arms looting at Chingarel, while pointing out the recent incident of suspension of cop for posting photos and videos with militant in Churachandpur district.

The suspension of the cop had sparked fresh violence in the region.

“Why did the protestors burn down District Magistrates office? They were protesting against police chief. There seems to be hidden agenda,” the CM asked.

Singh also suspected that the recent incident at Churachandpur was ‘pre-planned’ to destroy government documents. “The state government has already announced the base year of identification of illegal immigrants to be 1961. With this apprehension, they might target the DC office. But the state government have all the master copies,” he added.
