Three persons were killed on Tuesday (September 1) when police opened fire on protesters in Manipur’s Churachandpur district taking the overnight toll to eight as fresh violence erupted there, forcing the authorities to continue the indefinite curfew imposed last night on Monday (August 31).

The Mizoram Pradesh Congress Committee on Wednesday expressed its sympathy for the seven people who lost their lives and suffered injuries in the Monday night violence in south Manipur’s Churachandpur town.

“The Congress hopes the state government and the affected people will soon amicably resolve the issue,” the Congress said in a statement.
