Manipur Violence: An Income Tax Department official posted in Imphal was thrown out of his official residence and killed during the violence. The Indian Revenue Service (IRS) Association gave this information on Friday.

In a tweet, the association strongly condemned the killing of the Income Tax officer. The deceased has been identified as Laminthang Haokip, a tax assistant posted in Imphal. The tweet by the association said that no reason or ideology can justify the killing of an innocent public servant in the line of duty. Our thoughts are with his family during this difficult time.

It was alleged by the association that Haokip was dragged out of his official quarters in Imphal by protesting Meitei goons and then beaten to death. Let us tell you that in the last 48 hours there have been riots in some parts of the state.

Manipur Violence: Army steps to restore peace

The Army and the Assam Rifles and the Air Force along with the civil administration have worked tirelessly in the last nearly 48 hours to restore law and order and restore normalcy in Manipur. Due to the prompt response by the security forces, civilians from all communities were rescued from various minority localities in the violence-hit areas, it said in a statement.

The Manipur government had requisitioned the Army and the Assam Rifles soon after inter-community clashes broke out in some districts of the state on 3 and 4 May. As per information, Churachandpur, KPI, Moreh and Kaking are now under complete control and no major violence has been reported since last night.
