Imphal: Chief minister N. Biren Singh visited Raj Medicity and met those injured during a firing incident at Lilong, Thoubal district on Monday evening.
In the incident four persons died at the spot and 13 persons were injured. The issue of the was not clear even as some claims it related to drug issue on social media.
Stating that Manipur is passing through a very crucial period, the chief minister questioned the rationality in inciting hatred and fighting among the people instead of unitedly facing those who are trying hard to break the state apart.
He further reiterated his stance to come out strongly against anyone taking the law into their own hands, and said the government will not remain silent and take actions against anyone taking the law into their own hands.
These elements should be held responsible, if the government takes any stringent action including reimposition of the unwanted AFSPA, he added.
He called on the people to identify the enemies of Manipur and to face them unitedly.
Urging people against taking the law into their own hands, the chief minister appealed to the people to inform or complain to the concerned authorities if they find anything suspicious so that the concerned authorities can take necessary actions.
During the visit to the hospital, the chief minister was accompanied by ministers, MLAs and other top officials.
Civil society organisations have been trying to prevent from occurring violence out of the incident.
