The NHRC statement said the incident indicates a ‘lapse’ from law enforcement agencies and peacekeeping forces in the state. The reported loss of 13 lives in an area that had remained calm since May’s tension in Manipur is ‘alarming and disturbing’, the NHRC observed.

The commission has taken suo motu cognisance of a media report stating ‘at least 13 people were killed in a gunfight in Leithao village near Saibol in the Tengnoupal district, Manipur on December 4.’

The NHRC said, if true, the media report’s contents represent serious human rights violations and are a matter of concern.
