Indefinite curfew imposed in twin capital districts of Manipur in the wake of the killings of sub-divisional officer Th Kishan and two others was on Sunday relaxed for five hours from 9 am.

Official sources said the curfew was relaxed following slight improvement of law and order situation and to help people buy essential items.

The curfew was imposed on Thursday after large-scale agitation following the killings of Kishan and two staff members by suspected Naga militants on February 17 in Senapati district.
