NEW DELHI: Manipur chief minister Biren Singh on Saturday announced that internet services will be restored in the state from today.
The Manipur government on Friday asked the people in possession of “illegal weapons” to surrender them within 15 days or face “comprehensive search operations by security forces”.
The chief minister’s office issued a statement in this regard, which added that the government “is willing to take a considerate view of the persons submitting such illegal weapons within 15 days”.
At the end of this period, central and state security forces would undertake “strong and comprehensive search operations” across the state to recover such weapons, and all persons found possessing illegal arms would be dealt with severely, as per the law, the statement added.
“There have been reports of extortions, threats and abductions by miscreants using these illegal weapons. This is a serious matter and the state government will take strong action against such groups in any part of the state,” the statement further said.
It also appealed to people to cooperate with the Centre and the state government in restoring peace and normalcy.
