In response to reports of recent unrest in the state, the Indian Army and Assam Rifles have increased their control over Manipur.
The security troops in Churchandpur and Imphal East both stopped the shooting events between the two communities, when some armed criminals opened fire and fled towards higher ground, according to the Army.
However, no casualties were reported, and additional operations were under progress.
Manipur has seen ethnic conflict; earlier this month, Chief Minister N Biren Singh estimated that 60 people had died.
During the unrest, houses have also been set afire, and new occurrences have also been recorded from several areas of the State.
The Manipur Police, Manipur Rifles, India Reserve Battalion (IRB), and Village Defence Force (VDF) have been deployed in 38 vulnerable areas, according to information provided earlier on Friday by Chief Minister Biren Singh. Additional security forces have also been brought into the state.
