Amid ongoing violence in Manipur, Northeast Frontier Railway has ordered to stop train services in the state. No trains are entering Manipur till the situation is improved.

While speaking to news agency ANI, Sabyasachi De, CPRO of NF Railway said, “No trains are entering Manipur till the situation is improved. The decision has been taken after the Manipur government advised to stop train movement."

Further updating, Indian Railways said that four trains have been cancelled and the decision has been taken only for 5-6 May.

As a preventive measure, yesterday the Manipur government suspended internet services for the next five days. The state government has also issued “shoot at sight" orders to contain the widespread violence in the state between tribals and the majority Meitei community, in which at least persons have died and over 9,000 displaced. As the violence erupted, 55 columns of the Army and Assam Rifles were deployed in the state. The Army also staged flag marches across the violence-hit parts in Manipur.
