Collector escapes attempt on life in Manipur
imphAl, JAnuAry 10 (iAnS): The Collector of Tamenglong district in Manipur escaped an assassination attempt at his official residence on Monday night. Some unknown people hurled petrol bombs from across the perimeter brick walls, the police said. The guards at the residence of M. Luikham opened several rounds of fire in the air to ward off the attackers. It was not immediately known if it was a militant attack as no group has claimed
responsibility for the attack. "At least nine petrol bombs were lobbed. We have also recovered some unexploded bombs. Nobody was hurt in the attack. Investigation is on," a police official said. "It is yet to be verified whether the attackers were militants or local youths who have been picketing offices," the official added. The security of the Collector's house -- which is also his office -- has been beefed up. Besides, the number of armed escort
personnel for Luikham has also been increased. The police said it did not want to take any chances following a recent armed attack on two trucks. The drivers were wounded. Tamenglong, which is one of India's poorest districts, lies on the National Highway 37. On Nov 1, the United Naga Council (UNC) imposed an indefinite economic blockade on the highway. Besides, UNC activists have been picketing the government offices.

EMPLOYMENT IN INDIAN NAVY- BEWARE OF AGENTS/ CHEATS It has come to the notice that some agents/touts/unsocial elements on pretext to provide employment in the Indian Navy, make upbeat promises about chances of employment and virtually all of them ask innocent candidates to pay for their services. To achieve their end, they use dubious advertisements depicting Indian Navy address, website details, false certificate and email etc. to deceive unsuspecting job seekers. It is informed that recruitment of sailors is undertaken by Directorate of Manpower Planning and Recruitment (DMPR) of the Indian Navy whereas adequate publicity is undertaken by way of recruitment advertisement published in Employment News/leading newspapers across the country. All the details are also put on DMPR official website www.joinindiannavy.gov.in as per the schedule. It is reiterated that there is no requirement for anyone to pay any money at any stage of recruitment including filling of application form, written test, physical fitness test, medical examination and merit list. davp 10701/11/0064/1617
