An official was quoted saying that “the MHA has cancelled the order to induction of seven CRPF Companies to Manipur on the operational ground and these Companies should be released to the Government of Assam for Law and Order duty on the arrival of the special train at Dimapur.”
On August 5, the Centre has announced to scrap Article 370 of the Indian Constitution, which granted “special status” to Jammu and Kashmir.

The Home Ministry in the Parliament said that “during this period, 197 persons have been injured in law and order related incidents. During the same period, three security force personnel and 17 civilians have been killed in terror-related incidents while 129 persons got injured.”
It further stated that the rearrangement of J&K into two separate Union Territories – Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh – had “no additional financial implication.”
