On the evening of 22nd October 23, Yaikhom Maipaksana Meitei of Imphal East was found in a distressed state by locals of Kuki Village of Lhangnom, Tousem sub division, Tamenglong. He had lost his money due to theft, leaving him with no means to return home. They immediately brought him to safety and informed Assam Rifles, Kadamtala for assistance. The Assam Rifles along with The Jiribam police established Meitei’s identity and promptly informed his family and local police station about his safety. On the morning of 23 Oct, Mr. Meitei was safely dispatched to his home in Imphal East.
Assam Rifles and Jiribam district Administration and Police have been working continuously to bring both communities together and to resolve any issues through dialogue in peace meets. In the recent past few weeks numerous such meets have been organised at Assam Rifles, Kadamtala, SP Jiribam office and villages of both communities. The joint efforts are coming to fruition with peace, harmony and understanding being restored with the displaced people going back to their homes. The Jiribam Way is definitely a testament worth replication.
