At least two passenger vehicles were torched and another smashed on the first day of the 48-hour NH-39 bandh called in protest against government failure to book the culprit(s) involved in the murder of Board of Secondary Education Manipur chairman.
A passenger of the smashed vehicle also sustained injuries in the stoning.
The board chairman, Nameirakpam Kunjabihari, was shot dead in his office chamber, located just opposite to Imphal West District Police HQ on January 12 evening.
Alleging the killing as ‘conspiracy murder’, the residents of Kakwa, where the chairman hailed from, has been demanding booking of culprits.
The body of the chairman is still lying at RIMS morgue as family with the support of the locals is demanding booking of the culprits in the murder among others. The bandh has been imposed as the deadline set by the JAC formed in connection with the murder expired yesterday.
The 48-hour bandh along the Imphal-Moreh section of the NH-39 began from yesterday evening 6:30 pm.
During the bandh hour, damages were caused to at least three passenger vehicles. Police have been detailing along the stretch of the highway from Singjamei to Canchipur to prevent further attack on vehicles. However, normal traffic could not be resumed as protestors burnt tyres and debris on the road to disturb traffic movement.
Meanwhile, a police source said that at least four persons were picked up and interrogated during the course of investigation into a FIR case registered with the Imphal Police Station. However, no headway leading to the assailant is yet to be established. A level team led by an additional SP, a DSP and one sub-inspector is investigating into the crime, the source said.
