Moreh, June 15: Day curfew was relaxed for the third consecutive day today with the border town limping back to normalcy even as many philanthropic organisations continue with their humanitarian services of extended relief material to the displaced people in the aftermath of the recent spate of violent incidents.

Many of the people who fled to safer places on account of the volatile situation have also started returning to their respective homesteads and the district administration has put in place more stringent security arrangements to pre-empt recurrence of the violence at the border town.

With resumption in the border trade activities and relaxation of curfew from 6 am to 6 pm for the third consecutive day, passenger vehicles like buses, Tata Sumos and trucks arrived at Moreh from Imphal today.

On the other hand, various social organisations that descended at Moreh town in the wake of the violent incidents that claimed 11 lives have stepped up their humanitarian services of providing relief material to the displaced people apart from organising free medical camps for them.

Manipur Peace and Integrity Council (MAPI Council) joined hands with other Moreh-based organisations like MCM, HTC, MMCM and Gorkha Youth Club in distributing essential commodities like rice, cereal, milk powder, cooking oil, etc to the people.

Three doctors and other paramedical staff from Shanti Hospital located at Lamphel also organised a free medical camp providing necessary medical treatment to the people.

The free medical treatment will continue tomorrow.

Meanwhile, Kabui Dharma Sabha Manipur, Hmar Inpui, Kangleipak Lamjing Apunba Meira Lup (Kanglamei), etc have strongly condemned the recent violent incidents at Moreh which led to the loss of 11 innocent lives.

Denouncing such ugly incidents, Hmar Inpui has appealed to the State Government to provide adequate security to all the communities living at Moreh as well as to all the communities to oppose any form of violence so that normalcy may be restored immediately.

Kanglamei appealed to all concerned in ensuring such unfortunate incidents do not recur in the future.

These social organisations also shared in the sorrow of the bereaved families of the 11 persons killed in the recent Moreh violence.
