Manipur has been witnessing sporadic violence ever since ethnic clashes broke out on May 3.
The death toll from clashes has gone up to over 80, officials said.
The ethnic violence first broke out after a 'Tribal Solidarity March' was organised in the hill districts on May 3 to protest the Meitei community's demand for Scheduled Tribe (ST) status.
The violence was preceded by tension over the eviction of Kuki villagers from reserve forest land, which had led to a series of smaller agitations.
