In the incident, two innocent civilians were abducted and life attempt was made on the fateful evening by the Leilon Vaiphei villagers,” the LNKR-M also alleged.

More than 20 people were badly injured and two persons are in serious condition and they are being currently treated at Raj Medicity, Imphal, said the Liangmai student body. “Sadly, the police officers and personnel deployed at the spot were from a particular community which unfortunately has biased attitude towards the Konsaram villagers,” the LNKR also alleged.
