Six people, including a woman, sustained gunshot injuries on Monday in a pre-poll violent clash between two rival groups at Yairipok Yambem in Manipur’s Andro Assembly Constituency.

The incident took place following a verbal confrontation that broke out between the workers of intending candidates L Sanjoy and Th Shyamkumar.

According to reports, while the former Minister Thounaojam Shyamkumar was having a meeting in Yairipok Yambem, a section of supporters of L Sanjoy, also took out a rally at Yairipok Yambem.

A scuffle ensued which subsequently took an ugly turn.

On being informed, a team of police rushed to the spot and brought the situation under control.

The injured people have been admitted to hospital in Imphal.
