“We hate gun culture” said womenfolk of Chingmeirong from Imphal west district who staged a protest against gun attack at the residence of an official of the Manipur Health Service hailing from the locality on Friday. Miscreants suspected to be underground activists fired at least two rounds at the residence of health educator of state medical department, Yengkhom Chandrakumar last night at about 7 pm which caused panic to the residents of the area, lamented womenfolk taking part in the protest. “We don’t want violence of any kinds, we hate gun culture, stop threatening with gun and bomb to the general public, stop collecting money for the people in the name of waging war for sovereignty, the leader of the womenfolk cried. The women folk also demanded if any underground outfits were behind the attack to clarify the reason behind causing panic to the individual as well as to the general public. To mark the protest, shops, business establishments including petrol refilling stations in the area remained close.
