Imphal:

A gunfight broke out between security forces and insurgents in Manipur’s Moreh town along the India-Myanmar border on Sunday night, police said.

Hills-based insurgents attacked state police forces, who retaliated, resulting in a gunfight, a police officer said.

Further details are awaited.

The border town in Tengnoupal district had witnessed a heavy gunfight on January 2, in which six security personnel, including a BSF jawan, were injured. They were airlifted to Imphal for better treatment. Before that, the town witnessed similar gun battles since December 30.

Chief Minister N Biren Singh had last week remarked that there were “high chances” that foreign mercenaries from Myanmar were involved in the attacks in Moreh.¬†
