Tension mounted in Manipur’s border town Moreh on Friday after a mob clashed with a team of police.

Tengnoupal district administration in Manipur imposed prohibitory orders under section 144 Crpc in Moreh town along Indo-Myanmar border.

Official sources said the prohibitory order was promulgated on Friday evening in the bordering town after four police commandos were injured in an attack by a mob.

District magistrate of Tengnoupal, Mayanglangbam Rajkumar issued the order for one month, an official said.

District magistrate Rajkumar in a statement said assembly of five or more persons is not allowed and prohibited carrying of stones, sticks and firearms without a valid licence.

Four Manipur police commandos sustained injuries when a mob attacked them for stopping a vehicle for checking in Moreh town on Friday.

The police commandos had signalled a car with tinted glass to halt for checking on Friday. The car, however, did not stop and sped away, said a police officail. The commandos chased the car and stopped the vehicle.
