Curfew was reimposed in Thoubal district of Manipur where violence between Kuki-zo and Meitei communities, which erupted on May 3, has not ceased completely.

"The Curfew Relaxation order is hereby cancelled with immediate effect and curfew Is Imposed in the whole revenue jurisdiction of Thoubal District Immediately prohibiting the movement of persons outside their respective residences in the District," said the order issued by A Subhash, District Magistrate of the district.

"All persons belonging to essential services such as Health, PHED, MSPDCL/MSPCL, Municipalities, Print and Electronic Media and functioning of the Courts are however exempted from imposition of curfew," the order added.

Meanwhile, Curfew was reimposed on Sunday at Moreh in the Tengnoupal district of the state after intermittent gunfights between armed miscreants and State police commandos since Saturday afternoon.

The violence involving the Kuki and Meitei communities erupted after a rally by the All Tribal Students Union of Manipur (ATSUM) on May 3.

With the violence and rioting persisting and many lives lost, the Centre had to deploy paramilitary forces to restore peace. (ANI)
