The residence of Union Minister R K Ranjan in Kongba Nandeibam Leikai, Manipur, was set on fire by unidentified individuals, according to the police on Friday.

Security measures have been strengthened in the surrounding area.

In Imphal West and Imphal East districts, the authorities have decided to relax the curfew until 1 pm. However, certain vulnerable parts of the state capital will remain under strict restrictions.

The Manipur government has extended the internet ban until June 20.

This ban was initially imposed on May 3 following the outbreak of violence in the Chura Chandpur district.
