The Indian Army on Sunday, June 25, released a dozen militants in Manipur's Itham village after being surrounded by a women-led mob of over 1,200 people. In a statement, Army said that it decided to not risk civilian lives and release the militants to end the standoff which lasted for nearly a day.
"Keeping in view the sensitivity of the use of kinetic force against a large irate mob led by women and likely casualties due to such action, a considered decision was taken to hand over all 12 cadres to the local leader," the Army said.
The Army also commended the commander in charge of the operation for taking a "mature decision" which showed the "humane face of the Indian Army".
Earlier in the day, Army had apprehended the 12 militants of the Meitei militant group Kanglei Yawol Kanna Lup (KYKL).
