IMPHAL, JUNE 14: The Kangpokpi District Magistrate has clamped prohibitory orders under Section 144 CrPC after massive earth cracks developed at Kalikhola village in the district.

Issued by District Magistrate T Ranjit Singh, the order prohibited the assembly of 5 or more people and the entry of any person in the affected village and areas located within a radius of 1 km from the village. The order came into effect from 7 p.m. on Saturday, said the order, whose copies were sent to the media by Manipur Information & Public Relations Department on Monday.

Kalikhola, a Nepali village, initially witnessed the fissures on June 4. The cracks widened and multiplied there, damaging over 15 of the total 30 houses, forcing the affected villagers to take shelter at the nearby Toribari village along IT road. Geologists and environmentalists are currently examining the landslides at the village.

Tribal Affairs & Hills Minister N Kayisii had on June 6 given Rs 3 lakh and relief material to the affected villagers, who are currently putting up at the Goma Devi High School. 

Various NGOs, Gorkha leaders and Assam Rifles also continued to give relief material to the villagers.
