‘Disturbed area status’ extended in Manipur for one more year

Except the eight assembly segments in the Imphal Municipal Council in the city, the disturbed area status would be applicable to the valley and hill districts in the rest of the state.

The ‘disturbed area status’ for Manipur, except in Imphal Municipal area, under the controversial Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) has been extended for another year from December 1.

A notification in this regard was issued by the state Home department on December 17, an official source said on Tuesday.

The state government extended the disturbed area status in exercise of the powers conferred by section 3 of the Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act 1958 as amended from time to time.

Except the eight assembly segments in the Imphal Municipal Council in the city, the disturbed area status would be applicable to the valley and hill districts in the rest of the state.

“………..due to violent activities of various extremist/insurgent groups, the entire state of Manipur is in such a disturbed condition that the use of Armed Forces in aid of civil power is necessary,” the notification stated.

The AFSPA, which was imposed in the state since September 1980, has been extended from time to time.
