All Manipur Students’ Union (AMSU) on Friday called for a 100-hour blockade along the NH-37 (Imphal-Jiribam section) starting September 8, 2018 midnight against state government’s failure to arrest perpetrators involved in September 3 Nungba assault case.

AMSU volunteers today protested and burned effigies of Union home minister Rajnath Singh, NSCN(I-M) general secretary Th Muivah and state chief minister N Biren Singh. While burning the effigies, the volunteers shouted various slogans against NSCN(I-M) including “Go back NSCN(I-M)”.

Announcing the blockade, AMSU president Manjit Sarangthem alleged that Centre and state governments for giving free hand to NSCN(I-M) to carry out illegal activities like collection of illegal tax and harassing people in rampant manner in the state. He said state government could do nothing to arrest culprits except sending Army and state police commandos in Nungba area, Saranthem alleged at a press conference held its head office in Imphal.

Other forms of agitation will follow if no positive action was initiated despite the 100-hour blockade, he warned. AMSU has been claiming that four NSCN (I-M) cadres assaulted its general secretary Soibam Anil and looted cash from AMSU volunteers and artistes on board the bus they were returning from Silchar on September 3.

However, NSCN (I-M) denied involvement, saying  it was an “unfounded malicious allegation” made by the student body. It further claimed arrest of two miscreants found extorting in the name of NSCN (I-M) at Nungba.
