Unknown miscreants on Saturday night set fire to Manipur University’s sport department office.  The fire destroyed the office building severely and important documents and other properties including furniture of the office located at Dr Kamal Indoor Stadium of the university were reduced to ashes.
The arson took place around 11 pm last night. According to reports the caretaker and home guard personnel on duty saw some unknown persons leaving the spot soon after the fire started. 
They chased after them, but the miscreants managed to escape in the darkness, the report added.
Police and fire fighters took some hours to douse the fire before it spread to nearby structures. However, almost all the belongings in the office have been reduced to ashes, police said.
Police was yet to establish the reason behind the arson.
State education minister Th Radheshyam accompanied by Imphal West SP H Jogeshchandra inspected the inferno site and condemned the act. He appealed to all concerned not to resort to such violence activities. 
Talking to reporters, the minister said that government was trying its best efforts to resolve the imbroglio in the Manipur University.
He along with chief minister and other concerns have been in touch with the Union ministry of human resources.  
He therefore, appealed to striking students, teachers and staffs of the university, who were demanding the resignation of vice chancellor, to come to the negotiating table saying that dialogue was necessary to break every impasse or issue.
Meanwhile, Manipur University Students Union (MUSU), Manipur University Teachers’ Association (MUTA) and Manipur University Staffs Association (MUSA) have strongly condemned the burning down of the university sports office.
