Indefinite curfew, imposed since February 19 in Imphal East and Imphal West districts of Manipur after the killing of a sub divisional officer and his two staff members by Naga militants, was on Thursday relaxed for 12 hours from 6 am.

Official sources said curfew was relaxed to restore normal life in Imphal and Greater Imphal areas covering the two districts.

The curfew would be lifted in the next few days if there was no violence or agitation over the killing of the SDO, Th Kishan of Kasom Khullen subdivision in Ukhrul district and his two staff members, the sources said.

Educational institutions, government offices and banks functioned normally in the two districts during relaxation of the curfew.
