Manipur violence: Members of Kuki community hold protest outside Shah's residence
People from Manipurs Kuki community held a protest outside Union Home Minister Amit Shahs residence here on Wednesday against the ongoing violence in the northeastern state, police said.
The protesters were holding placards with messages such as Save Kuki Lives and raising slogans, they said.
Police said four of the protesters were allowed to enter the home ministers residence for a meeting and the rest were shifted to Jantar Mantar.
At least 98 people have lost their lives and 310 more were injured in ethnic violence in Manipur that broke out a month ago. A total of 37,450 people are currently sheltered in 272 relief camps in the state.
Clashes first broke out in Manipur on May 3 after a Tribal Solidarity March was organised in the hill districts to protest against the Meitei communitys demand for Scheduled Tribe (ST) status.
