IMPHAL, April 27: Security advisor to Manipur government, Kuldiep Singh, on Saturday issued a stern warning to the group responsible for the attack on a camp of security forces in Bishnupur district, which resulted in the deaths of two CRPF personnel and injuries to two others.

Speaking to reporters, Singh said, “Whoever has committed this act will face severe consequences. We are mobilising all necessary resources and agencies to identify and apprehend the perpetrators.”

“The militants came and fired at the IRBn (India Reserve Battalion) camp at Naranseina in Moirang police station area in the early hours of Saturday. Though it was dark, the forces retaliated. Out of the four injured, two succumbed to injuries,” Singh said, adding “these forces have come from distant places to maintain peace in this region.”

Singh added, “Starting today, we have instructed all security forces, including Assam Rifles and the army, to intensify operations. We are formulating strategies for day-to-day operations. We will leave no stone unturned in our investigation to bring the perpetrators to justice.”

Reacting to recent IED explosion that damaged a bridge in Kangpokpi district, Singh expressed concern over attacks on national infrastructure and central forces.

“I have seen that groups are now targeting national infrastructure such as roads and bridges. They are also attacking central forces. This cannot be tolerated. We will probe everything and take action against the culprits,” he said.

Expressing surprise at the attack on security forces, Singh said, “We did not anticipate such assaults, especially considering that both Meitei and Kuki militants have historically refrained from targeting forces engaged in maintaining peace. We have always strived to maintain neutrality between both communities. In the past, both communities have welcomed the presence of central forces, so why attack neutral forces now?”

The deceased were identified as sub-inspector N Sarkar, a native of Assam’s Kokrajhar district, and head constable Arup Saini of Bankura district in West Bengal, police said.

The injured were inspector Jadav Das and constable Aftab Das, police said, adding that they sustained splinter wounds. (PTI)
