On July 27, violence erupted again in Manipur, as clashes occurred between armed individuals from two communities. These incidents took place in different locations near the borders of Churachandpur and Bishnupur districts. According to a report by Hindustan Times, four people were injured in the gunfire. The identities of the victims have not been disclosed by the Manipur Police yet. The sound of gunfire continued late into the night on July 27.

According to the report, the Indigenous Tribal Leaders Forum (ITLF), an Adivasi organization, claimed that one person, aged 30, has died in these incidents, while the other three individuals are injured. In a press conference, they revealed that all four individuals were volunteers from the village. The ITLF further explained their stance on the matter.

"These attacks continued throughout the day, and bombs were also used in them."

According to a police officer, all four injured individuals have been admitted to Raj Medicity Hospital in Imphal. Around 4 am on July 27, armed individuals attempted to infiltrate villages in Kangpokpi, Kwakta, Phugakchao Ikhai, and Therkhongshangbi areas. Subsequently, gunfire broke out.

The situation was already tense beforehand.

Officials reported that tension had escalated in the Kangpokpi area since the evening of July 26. Some armed individuals had fired mortar shells, resulting in news of a young man getting injured. Since then, the situation remained tense in the area. A Manipur Police Control Board officer stated this.

"The police and security forces are present at the scene. They have managed to protect the villagers from the gunfire. However, the shooting is still ongoing."

On July 26, in Moreh city, a crowd of armed individuals had indulged in acts of vandalism, breaking into and setting fire to about 15-16 houses. Subsequently, a shootout occurred between security forces and the armed group. Just one day after this incident, violence flared up once again. The Manipur violence has already claimed the lives of approximately 150 people, and nearly 50,000 people have been forced to leave their homes.
