An eerie calm prevails in Mao town where curfew has been clamped after yesterday’s police brutality. A peaceful rally, as part of the day of mourning was carried out at Tadubi today.
Manipur police continue with the road blockade on vehicular traffic on NH-39 at both sides of Mao Gate. The small township wore a deserted look with no civilian seen except armed personnel patrolling the streets. The few remaining citizens who had not fled after yesterday’s mayhem were not allowed to venture out.
Several villagers from the neighbouring villages of Mao Gate who fled their villages and sheltered in Nagaland have refused to return back to their villages fearing backlash from the Manipur police though some returned back on Friday. Meanwhile, bodies of two students Daikho Loshü-o and Neli Chakho-both from Kalinamei, shot dead on Thursday, are still in the Mao Gate Police Station. The United Naga Council of Manipur has resolved not to receive the bodies till all Manipur police forces deployed at Mao Gate were withdrawn.
Around 400 villagers who took shelter in Kidima have reportedly returned to their respective villages.However, around 600 villagers taking refuge at Khuzama village have refused to return. Meanwhile, several organizations provided basic relief materials in the form of cash and food items to the displaced villagers sheltered at Khuzama.
