INJURY OF FOUR WOMEN DUE TO FIRING BY AR PERSONNEL NEAR GATE NO 2, MOREH
2/6/2012

1. A news report published in 05 Feb 2012 edition of local dailies claims that four women were hurt including two who received bullet injuries when AR personnel fired several shots to quell a mob in Moreh Ward No 4, near Gate No 2 on 04 Feb 2012. 2. Above news report is absolutely false and baseless. As mentioned in press release issued by PRO, IGAR(S), Assam Rifles had confirmed information regarding presence of miscreants who had sneaked inside Moreh to disrupt the re-polling held on 04 Feb 2012. Acting on above input when they approached the target house, suspected terrorists opened fire and escaped towards International Boundary. Troops of Assam Rifles keeping in mind presence of innocent civilians in vicinity, maintained strict fire discipline. Since suspects were firing indiscriminately, to ensure safety of innocent people, troops of Assam Rifles carried out controlled and aimed fire on fleeing suspects. At no point of time firing was resorted to quell the mob. No women were hurt or received gun shot wounds which has again been verified from Moreh Community Health Centre where they were allegedly admitted as per the news reports. 3. Assam Rifles request people of Manipur not to fall prey to such malicious reports which are generated by anti social elements to weaken the bond of faith and friendship between people of this beautiful state and Assam Rifles.
