4 JAWANS OF IRB KILLED IN AMBUSH

Four jawans of the India Reserve Battalion (IRB) were killed and six others injured when unidentified militants from the banned People’s Liberation Army (PLA) ambushed their two vehicles at Oksu in Imphal East district around 11 am today.
Sources said the personnel were posted to provide security at an underconstruction dam site at Makhong.
The incident took place when they were coming to Imphal in two Gypsies and were attacked by them. Three weapons belonging to the personnel were also missing.
The injured are under treatment at the Regional Institute of Medical Science and Hospital (RIMS) in Imphal.
The police said thickly forested terrain in the hilly area was in the favour of the militants, who also used rocket launchers in the attack.
Meanwhile, normal life in Manipur was affected today due to a 24-hour general strike called by the Joint Action Committee in protest against an alleged fake encounter that took place on September 8 last at Awang Khul in Imphal West district.
