Lightening bandh  demanding release of suspected NSCN(I-M) cadres arrested by security force in Manipur hit normal vehicular movement on Imphal-Dimapur section of NH-2 on Thursday 

On Wednesday evening, troops of Assam Rifles apprehended five suspected cadres of NSCN(I-M) from T Khullen area under Tadubi police station of Senapati district.

The troops handed over the arrested cadres to Lamphel police station in Imphal who were then formally handed over to Tadubi police station where a case was registered  against them.

The five cadres secured release on bail from a local court here where they were produced today.

Denouncing the arrest of the cadres of the outfit under ceasefire truce with government of India, residents of T Khullen imposed a lightening bandh along the NH-2 at their area today demanding immediate release of the arrested cadres.

Residents came out onto the street along the highway and prevented all kinds of vehicles including passenger vehicles from passing through the village.They also lit fire on the road to disturb the vehicular movement. The bandh was however suspended after the police released the five cadres who secure bail from the court.

No untoward incident was reported during the bandh hours.

This was the second time people in Senapati district  have protested against arrest of members of the NSCN (I-M) in the state.

In mid February , residents of Senapati district headquarters engaged in violence when troops of Assam Rifles picked up a functionary of the outfit from his house and handed him over to the police.

It was only after the police released the member with bail granted by the Senapati district magistrate that the residents calmed down and suspended their agitations.
