The civil society groups of Churachandpur have called for a shut down today against killing of civilians last night.

Two persons have been killed and over 25 injured in a clash with the security forces after hundreds of people came out in Manipur’s Kuki-Zo tribes-dominated Churachandpur district to protest against the suspension of a head constable after a selfie of him with “armed miscreants” went viral.

The police said there is tension in the district.

Protesters were seen surrounding the office of the Superintendent of Police, demanding the reinstatement of the head constable, Siamlalpaul, who took the selfie in a bunker of “armed miscreants” and “village defence volunteers” atop a hill.
