Eight persons were injured in a clash between students’ body volunteers and family members of a restaurant owner today at Sagoltongba under Patsoi PS in Imphal West.
However, police prevented further escalation of the skirmish between the two parties and put the situation under control.
An altercation ensued between volunteers of Manipuri Students’ Federation and family members of a restaurant owner when the former party was on a drive to check immoral activities in restaurants.
The fracas started with hurling of stones at each others resulting in the injury of eight persons including women from both sides.
People at the surrounding area intervened to pacify the clash but it only proved futile. With Patsoi PS being informed of the matter, the police arrived and managed to bring the situation under control.
The police later summoned both the parties with representatives of the All Manipur Restaurant Owners’ Association to resolve the matter.
