Amid clashes more CAPF companies to be deployed in the state

GUWAHATI: The central government is likely to deploy additional companies of central armed police forces (CAPFs) in the violence-affected Northeast state of Manipur.

According to sources, the central government is planning to dispatch around 20 to 22 companies of CAPF to Manipur in the coming days.

These additional CAPF companies, which are likely to be deployed in Manipur, were recently engaged in guarding the Amarnath Yatra.

It should be noted that sporadic incidents of violence, arson and murder have been reported from different parts of Manipur in the last two days.

It may be mentioned here that since May 3, Manipur has been on the boil following communal clashes between the Kuki and Meitei communities in the state following large-scale violence.

Over 150 people have lost their lives in the violence and thousands others were displaced in the nearly four-month long violence in Manipur.
