Guwahati: The ongoing Meitei-Kuki ethniic clash took a barbaric turn on Sunday afternoon when a mob attacked a medical evacuation in which a seven-year-old boy, his mother, and another woman were burnt alive inside the ambulance they were travelling in.A team of Manipur Police commandos led by an SP escorting the ambulance, as well as the driver, managed to escape from the scene leaving the trio at the mercy of the mob. The victims have been identified as Tongsing Hangsing (7), his mother Meena and their neighbour Lydia Lourembam. They were residents of Kangchup village in Kangpokpi district.The Manipur government and the police are tightlipped about the entire incident but security sources confirmed the incident occurred at 4.15 pm when a mob waylaid the ambulance in the Iroisemba area of Imphal under Lamsang PS and set it on fire with the trio trapped inside it.Tongsing’s mother was a Meitei but his father is a Kuki. They were among 30 other displaced people who had taken shelter at the Assam Rifles camp near their village on May 4, a day after the clashes broke out. “On Sunday, there was firing from both the warring sides near the Assam Rifles camp and a splinter of iron rod hit by a bullet ricocheted to hit Tongsing in the head.
