Militants lift Heirok ban


    IMPHAL, July 13: The ban imposed to the villagers of Heirok by the proscribed UNLF and KYKL with regard to setting up of special police officers in the aftermath of a firing incident at Heirok village in 2008 has been lifted.
    A joint statement of UNLF and KYKL said that the unfortunate firing incident sparked furious sentiments amongst the Heirok villagers and they demanded the state government to give arms and ammunitions to fight the revolutionary groups.
    It further said that the UNLF and KYKL tried to persuade the villagers not to take such drastic measures against the revolutionary movement of the state. But they went ahead with the formation of special police officers under the influence of the Indian colonialists.
    The ban has been lifted in view of the present crucial scenario in Manipuri society. The Indian Supreme Court also made the special police officers of Chhatisgarh unconstitutional. It is high time for the people to understand the true reality and move together to achieve the goal of “Liberated Manipur”, the statement added.
