New Delhi:  In the wake of violence in Manipur, Home Minister Rajnath Singh today called up Chief Minister O Ibobi Singh, who briefed him about the prevailing situation in the northeastern state.

The Home Minister assured the Chief Minister of all central assistance to tackle the situation arising out of the violence that has so far killed five people and injured 27 others.

Five people were killed and 27 others injured in violence at Churachandpur town in Manipur during a 12-hour bandh called by tribal student organisations in protest against three bills passed by the Assembly.

Widespread arson was witnessed in Churachandpur district with the houses of a state minister, an MP and five MLAs being set on fire by unidentified people last evening, prompting authorities to impose indefinite curfew in Churachandpur town.
