Assam Rifles has allegedly committed atrocities with impunity after Manipur was declared “disturbed” under AFSPA.
The Manipur Police has filed an FIR against the Assam Rifles, which alleges that the latter’s personnel blocked the former’s vehicles and prevented them from conducting “search operations in an arms act case in search of Kuki militants.”

The news was shocking because the state has been engulfed in violence for more than three months, and from the start we have been seeing clashes not only between two ethnic communities but between the different security forces which should have been working together to stop the violence.

However, for those living in Manipur, the news did not produce either surprise or shock. It just seemed like a natural culmination of all the resentment and anger against Assam Rifles.
