How did these three people die in Manipur
Officials said that a mob came down from the hill at night and tried to burn down some villages in the valley. He told that this mob had gathered from outside the area and did not retreat despite the requests of the local people to go back. The security forces responded in an orderly manner and prevented the miscreants from setting any house on fire. 

Some people from both sides, however, fired at each other from the standoff areas of Kangwai, Songdo and Awang Lekhai villages, resulting in the death of three people on both sides and injuries to several people on both sides. According to the Indian Express, two of these three belonged to the Kuki community, while the 17-year-old boy killed, M Rikki, belonged to the Meitei community. 

Officials said though the firing stopped in the early hours of Friday, the mob on the valley side continued to block the movement of security forces to strengthen the presence in the area. 

Police commando killed 
Officials said that the resentment, however, continued to grow and intermittent firing continued even during the day. The police commando was killed in an encounter with suspected terrorists at Moirang Turel Mesan late Friday evening, officials said.
