Four women were injured as police burst tear gas shells to quell two clashing communities at Langdum area in Imphal East district of Manipur on Sunday.

Sources said thousands of gun-toting members of a minority community attempted to attack Langdum village, dominated by the majority Meitei community, after the body of a boy of the minority community was found at a place near Langdum some days ago.

As the Meiteis prepared to retaliate, a police force went to the spot, about 10 km south of here, and burst tear gas shells.

Four women were injured in police action.

Police were investigating whether the Muslim boy was killed by one of his relatives, as one of his uncles was missing.

Heavy police and security have been deployed at Langdum to prevent any further flare-up.
