Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Thursday said a judicial probe headed by a retired high court chief justice to inquire into clashes that erupted in the north-eastern state of Manipur, will soon be announced. At a press conference held at the end of a four-day tour of the strife-torn state, that a peace committee under the Governor of Manipur Anusuiya Uikey with representatives of all political parties, the warring Kuki and Meitei communities and social organizations will be set up.

After the press briefing, a 1993 batch IPS officer serving as the inspector general of operations at the CRPF headquarters in Delhi, replaced P Doungel, a 1987 batch IPS officer from Manipur, for whom a post of Officer on Special Duty (Home) has been created. He is due to retire at the end of the month.

Ethnic clashes broke out in the state nearly a month ago after a 'Tribal Solidarity March' was organized in the hill districts to protest the Meitei community's demand for Scheduled Tribe (ST) status.

After a relative lull for over a fortnight, the state witnessed a spurt in clashes and gunfights between militants and security forces on Sunday. So far, over 80 people have been killed in the violence, according to officials.
