At least six people were injured during a conflict that occurred between supporters of two rival candidates in the Andro Assembly Constituency, Manipur.

Clashes started between supporters of the former MLA of Andro and his rival candidate Lourebom Sanjoy during a poll meeting, at around 11 am.

According to reports, workers of former minister Th Shyamkumar allegedly attacked workers of Lourembam Sanjoy at Yairipok Yambem Leikai under Andro police station Imphal East.
