New Delhi: An agreement to ensure peace in the Kuki-dominated areas in Manipur has been signed by the Centre with two militant groups of the community, officials said on Tuesday.

The agreement on Suspension of Operation (SoO) by the security forces was signed by the Central government with the Kuki National Organisation (KNO) and the United People’s Front (UPF) of Manipur.

 

The suspension of operation will continue for one more year till August 31, 2019, a Union home ministry official said.

The two Kuki apex militant bodies as well as several other organisations of the community are demanding the carving out of a separate Kuki state out of Manipur.

Many cadres of the KNO and the UPF are currently putting up at designated camps set up by the government in different Kuki-dominated areas in the state.

The SoO agreement was first signed in 2008 between the Centre, the state government and Kuki underground groups.
