Manipur illegal arms

The Manipur government has asked the people of the state to surrender illegal weapons within 15 days or face comprehensive search operations by security forces, an official statement from the chief minister’s office said on Friday.

In the statement, the Manipur government said that the State Government is willing to take a considerate view for the persons submitting such illegal weapons within these 15 (fifteen) days.

“At the end of the 15 (fifteen) days, Security Forces, both of the Centre and the State will undertake a strong and comprehensive search operation all over the State to recover such weapons, and all persons associated with any illegal weapons will be dealt with severely, as per the law,” it reads.

It further said that there have been reports of extortion, threats, and abduction by miscreants and groups using illegal weapons.

“This is a serious matter and the State Government will take strong action against such miscreants/ groups in any part of the State,” it said.

The Government also appeals to the people of the State to cooperate with both the Central and State Governments in restoring peace and normalcy in the State.

The Manipur government on Friday filed a status report before the Supreme Court on the issue of recovery of stolen or missing weapons and ammunition “from all sources” in the ethnic violence-hit State.

A bench of Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud and Justices JB Pardiwala and Manoj Misra was informed by the Solicitor General of India Tushar Mehta that the confidential status report has been filed on the issue and it is for the judges only. The bench agreed to accept the report confidentially as the issue regarding the weapons was “extremely sensitive”. (ANI)
