Manipur CM Ibobi Singh Escapes Unhurt, A Jawan Injured As Militants Open Gunfire

Published on 24 October, 2016 at 7:36 pm By

Manipur chief minister Ibobi Singh escaped unhurt on Monday after open gun firing by militants when he got out from his helicopter at the Ukhrul helipad.

The officials told PTI that CM’s helicopter immediately took off and left for Chingai but could not land at the remote village due to protests. He then flew back to the state capital.

A jawan was, however, injured in the firing.

Sources said that the jawan of the Manipur Rifles was injured in the firing which took place when the CM stepped out of the helicopter and was being greeted by government officials.

 

Ibobi was to travel to Hunphung to inaugurate the 100 bedded Ukhrul district hospital beside a power sub-station.

The sources said,”Civil Society organisations had called a curfew and put up a road blockade along the three km route to Hunphung from the helipad. Two vehicles had also been set ablaze by the protesters.”

Earlier, a jawan of the Indian Resserve Battalion sustained splinter injuries in a bomb attack by suspected militants on the newly constructed hospital today.

Tension prevailed in the area, the official said.
