In fresh firing incident 14 years old girl injured in Imphal West

Imphal: A 14-year-old girl was injured by a bullet while studying at her home in Kotruk village of Manipur’s Imphal West district on Friday.

The minor girl was shot in the left leg by a bullet fired from the hilltop of Kotruk Chingyang in the inter-districts of Imphal West and Kangpokpi.
She was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment and is said to be in a stable condition.

The incident took place around 11 am on Friday morning. Armed miscreants opened fire indiscriminately from the top of the hill, police said. They have started an investigation to identify the attackers.
This is the latest in a series of violent incidents in Manipur in recent months. More than 170 people, including women and children, have been killed in the violence that broke out between the Meitei and Kuki communities on May 3. Thousands of people have been displaced by the violence.
The United Nations has demanded an end to the violence in Manipur. The UN Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Children and Armed Conflict, Virginia Gamba, has urged all parties to conflict to protect children and ensure that they are not harmed.
