Soshim Keishing.

A 33-year-old youth in Manipur missed his UPSC prelims examination after he was allegedly beaten up by villagers in Ukhrul district while he was on his way to the exam centre in Imphal.

UPSC aspirant Soshim Keishing, who sustained multiple injuries in the attack, has been admitted to a district hospital, TOI reported.

The incident took place following an argument between Keishing and the authorities of Rayotang village in Ukhrul over issuance of “travel pass”, which he needed to cross the village.

Secretary of the village allegedly thrashed Soshim, after accusing him of disrespecting guidelines issued by local authorities.

A suo moto FIR has been registered at Ukhrul police station, a police officer in the district said.

Four persons — Soreingam RS, Thotshang Rumthao, Lucky Zimik and Thangmayo — of Rayotang village have been arrested in connection with the case.
