The first incident took place on the night of May 21-22, where one person was apprehended in New Keithelmanbi Village, Imphal West District. Acting on specific inputs regarding his involvement in a firing incident in Moidangpok Village, resulting in three villagers sustaining injuries, the security forces swiftly apprehended the individual.

In the second incident, a joint operation involving the Army, Assam Rifles, Police, and the Rapid Action Force (RAF) was launched in response to information about four armed suspects threatening shopkeepers in the New Chekon area before moving to New Lambulane area of Imphal East District. Acting swiftly, the security forces cordoned off the area and effectively controlled the gathering crowd. As a result, three suspects were apprehended, and two single barrel 12 bore guns were seized. The suspects and the recovered weapons have been handed over to the police for further legal proceedings.
