The curfew has been called off in five Manipur districts, officials said today, adding that the prohibitory orders have been relaxed for a few hours in other districts.

The announcement comes just a day after Union Home Minister Amit Shah warned of strict action against those who did not surrender arms in violence-hit Manipur and that a judicial probe will be carried out.
