Owing to continuous demonstration and stiff resistance from the members of six colonies, the DC Dimapur Maong Aier has deferred electoral photo identity card (EPIC) exercise in polling station 11 and 12 of Dimapur II A/C to 2nd phase to be held in the month of July. An official note from DC said decision was taken as there was likelihood of confrontation and clashes in polling station 11 and 12 which would lead to further breach of peace and tranquillity in the area and break down of law and order. On June 13, the members of six colonies viz. Hill View, Industrial Estate, Lengrijan, Oriental, Duncan and others boycotted EPIC exercises leading to group clashes and stone pelting. Ultimately the police resorted to lathi charge and firing of tear gas shells to disperse the mob.
