A jawan of the Manipur Rifles was injured in the firing which took place when the Chief Minister stepped out of the helicopter and was being greeted by government officials, the officials said.

The CM’s helicopter immediately took off and left for Chingai but could not land at the remote village due to protests, the official said.

The Chief Minister then cancelled his programmes and flew back to the state capital where he called an emergency cabinet meeting, the source said.

Tension prevailed in the area, the official said.
