Manipur's Information and Public Relations Minister, DR Sapam Ranjan, declared on Saturday that there have been no untoward incidents in the state in the past 24 hours, indicating a return to normalcy.

Addressing the media, Minister Sapam Ranjan stated, "No untoward incident has occurred in the state since yesterday, which is proof that peace and normalcy are being restored. Combing operations have been initiated in various locations throughout the state."

The minister also reported that there are currently 349 relief camps operational in Manipur. Ethnic violence has plagued the state, with Chief Minister N Biren Singh revealing earlier this month that around 60 people have lost their lives in the clashes.

Incidents of arson have destroyed houses, and fresh disturbances have been reported in certain areas.

Regarding the recovery of looted weapons, the minister informed, "Out of the total of 4,537 arms stolen, the state government has retrieved 990 arms." He added, "Several weapons, including approximately 53 firearms, 39 bombs, and 74 rounds of ammunition and magazines, have been recovered."

The minister emphasized that the state government is taking all necessary security measures to restore peace and harmony. He stated, "The government is making every effort to ensure that rail services reach Khongsang by activating the railway station within seven to ten days."

As of now, 114 companies of the Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) have been deployed across the state, according to the minister.

On Saturday, security forces conducted Joint Combing Operations for the fourth consecutive day in sensitive areas, both in the hills and valleys, recovering 22 weapons. These operations were conducted in response to the violence and ethnic clashes that have occurred in the state. 

Earlier in the day, the central government established a Peace Committee in Manipur, chaired by the Governor. The committee aims to facilitate the peace-making process among various ethnic groups in the state.

This development follows Union Home Minister Amit Shah's announcement during his four-day visit to Manipur between May 29 and June 1 that a peace panel would be formed to restore normality in the state as soon as possible.

The unrest in Manipur began a month ago after a high court directive urged the state government to consider including the Meitei community in the list of Scheduled Tribes (STs).

In response to escalating violence, the central government deployed paramilitary Forces to the Northeastern state. Violence erupted on May 3 during a rally which was organized by the All Tribals Students Union (ATSU) to protest against the demand for including Meitei/Meetei in the Scheduled Tribe (ST) category.
