Editing errors were inadvertently introduced into a report filed by our Imphal Correspondent Iboyaima Laithangbam on the plan to issue permits to non-locals by the Joint Committee on Inner Line Permit.

In “Extremists to issue permit for non-locals” in this edition (November 19), it was erroneously stated that “extremists” would issue permits and that the Joint Committee was formed by some underground organisations.

In fact, the Joint Committee has been formed by 25 civil organisations and student bodies, and the United Committee Manipur is a constituent party.

The errors are regretted.
