IMPHAL, July 9 - Normal life came to a grinding halt in Manipur, particularly in the State capital here today as an indefinite curfew continued in the greater Imphal area since the last 24 hours. However, there is no report of any untoward incident till the report goes to the press.

Indefinite curfew was imposed in greater Imphal area at 4 pm on Wednesday, soon after a 16 year-old student was allegedly killed in police action to control a protest march demanding implementation of the Inner Line Permit System to regulate the influx of outsiders in Manipur.

There are reports of protests in Thoubal, home constituency of Chief Minister O Ibobi Singh and some places in Imphal area defying the curfew. But police prevented them from continuing.

Meanwhile, the issue of ILPS was discussed in the State Assembly today. Though the house was adjourned for about 10 minutes following a pandemonium during the discussion, several MLAs demanded withdrawal of the bill to replace it with a new one. They also demanded institution of a probe into the police action.

In his reply, Ibobi Singh assured the House that a joint consultation meeting involving representatives of JCILPS, MLAs, political parties and experts will be held to resolve the issue once the Assembly session concludes on Friday. Deputy CM Gaikhangam assured to look into the demand for conducting an inquiry into the July 8 police action.
