The Manipur Police reports that 140 weapons have been surrendered at various locations in the state following the appeal made by Union Home Minister Amit Shah. This development comes in response to the recent incidents of violence in Manipur.
The weapons surrendered include SLR (Self-Loading Rifle), Carbine, AK (Kalashnikov) rifles, INSAS (Indian Small Arms System) Rifle, INSAS LMG (Light Machine Gun), .303 Rifle, 9mm pistol, .32 pistol, and a grenade launcher. The surrender of these weapons is a significant step towards restoring peace and stability in the region.
Curfew Lifted in Six Districts
As a positive outcome of the surrender, curfew has been lifted from six districts in Manipur. This indicates a gradual improvement in the security situation and a step towards normalcy.
Judicial Commission and Peace Committee
Union Home Minister Amit Shah has announced the formation of a Judicial Commission to investigate the incidents of violence in Manipur. The commission will be led by a retired judge from the High Court. Additionally, a peace committee will be headed by the Governor of Manipur, comprising members of civil society, to foster reconciliation and harmony.
The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) will conduct investigations into five specific cases of violence, as well as an overarching case to explore any conspiracy angles. This step aims to uncover the truth behind the violent incidents and ensure accountability for those responsible.
Efforts for Peace and Reconciliation
Amit Shah expressed his condolences to the families who lost their loved ones in the recent violence. He personally visited various places in Manipur, including Imphal, Moreh, and Churachandpur, and held meetings with officials to promote peace and stability. He also met with representatives from the Meitei and Kuki communities to understand their perspectives and address their concerns.
Collaborative Efforts and Support
Several agencies are actively engaged in Manipur to investigate the violent incidents and restore peace. To enhance coordination among these agencies, an inter-agency unified command is being established. Moreover, the Central government has deployed eight teams of medical experts, including 20 doctors, to provide assistance and support to the victims of violence.
