On Tuesday, the Indian Army initiated synchronized operations following intelligence reports indicating the presence of militants and stockpiles of weapons, ammunition, explosives, and military supplies at two separate sites: one in the Kumbi area of Bishnupur district and the other in the general vicinity of Maphou in Imphal East district of Manipur.

A collaborative operation was undertaken with the Bishnupur Police and Manipur Commando. During the operation, authorities recovered one .303 rifle, one 9mm carbine, one locally-made pistol, four hand grenades, and various other military supplies.

In another incident, a search operation was conducted following intelligence indicating the presence of militants in the vicinity of Maphou in the Imphal East district.

During the meticulously conducted search, which involved thorough inspections of abandoned sites and the outskirts of villages along hill bases and deserted structures, a significant stockpile of arms and explosives was discovered. This included one Improvised Mortar, one Pompie Mortar, two grenades, and ammunition.

These confiscations highlight the efficiency of joint efforts by security forces in combating illegal activities and maintaining the safety and security of the region.

The retrieved items have been transferred to the Manipur Police. This operation demonstrates the synergy and steadfast dedication of both Central and State Security Forces to uphold peace and stability in Manipur, while also enforcing the rule of law.
