Manipur violence: In another set of violence broke out in the Northeastern state, around three people lost their lives and houses were burnt in Bishnupur on Friday. The deceased people are reported to be from the Meitei community in Kwakta area, reported ANI.

Kwakta is a village which is located in the Bishnupur area. Due to its proximity from the buffer zone, the situation remains tense in this district.
