A pregnant woman who was displaced due to the present state crisis from Moreh border town has successfully given birth to a baby girl while being at a relief camp at Akampat in Imphal East.
A remarkable traditional "Epan Thaba" of the baby was celebrated on Saturday at the relief camp after the baby girl was born at JNIMS hospital on May 16.
The campus and organisers named the new-born "Lanjenthoibi Chanu" in the wake of the existing social turmoil caused by the misunderstanding between two communities.
It may be mentioned that the pregnant mother, identified as Oinam ongbi Echan, W/o O Basanta, along with her family from Moreh Khunou Leikai, Ward No 9 and internally displaced Meetei community from the border town were safely deported by the security forces and kept at the relief camp opened at Akampat.
At the camp, she was about to deliver a child following which the organisers immediately took her to JNIMS on May 16 where she delivered the girl child safely in a normal way.
The campus, along with the organisers, releasing the success of delivery organised the traditional "Epan Thaba" along with the mother and child at the relief camp with a simple grand feast on Saturday afternoon.
