A 64-year old man sustained bullet injury when police opened fire towards a crowd blocking the Indo-Myanmar section of NH-2 late Saturday night even as normal traffic along the highway was disturbed for the day on the first day of an indefinite bandh imposed on the highway by locals of Thoubal district headquarters.

The locals blocked the highway from this evening pressing authority of the state government to book culprit(s) involved in the killing of a local businessman by miscreants Friday morning.

Due to the sudden imposition of the bandh, the traffic movement along the Indo-Myanmar section was greatly disturbed today. All kinds of vehicles both from Imphal and Moreh side could not passed through Thoubal district as residents in large number took to the street along the highway at Thoubal and imposed the bandh. Despite police efforts, the normal traffic could not be resumed for the day. As such, all vehicles had to divert their routes from Kakching Lamkhai towards Mayai Lambi state highway.
In further effort to open the highway, a team of police opened fire towards the people blocking the road this evening around 6.10 pm, injuring to a 64-year old man identified as Huirungbam Manichandra Singh of Thoubal Wangma Taba, the same locality with the deceased Naoba.

With bullet injury in his chest, Manichandra has been evacuated at a hospital in Imphal, reports said.
