Churachandpur: Over the last 24 hours, the state of Manipur experienced moments of tension as sporadic incidents of firing and the congregation of protestors raised concerns. However, security forces responded with strategic measures to address the situation.

In a series of search operations carried out by security personnel, the fringe and vulnerable areas of Churachandpur and Imphal West districts were targeted.

Notably, the operations yielded significant results as a cache of 20 explosive devices commonly known as pipe bombs, 3 firearms, 20 rounds of ammunition, and approximately 30 grams of gunpowder were recovered from Churachandpur district.

Stringent security protocols were implemented in vulnerable regions, with security convoys deployed in sensitive stretches to facilitate the safe passage of vehicles.

As a result of these measures, law enforcement apprehended 1911 individuals in connection with violations across different districts within the state.
