Residents of Senapati district Saturday imposed a lightning blockade along the Imphal-Dimapur section of NH-2 near Mao gate forcing dozens vehicles to remain stranded. 

The blockade was imposed after one person, Salew Hepuni (40 years), was picked up by Assam Rifles personnel from Khrokho village, between Mao Gate and Nagaland. 

He was alleged to be an NSCN (I-M) cadre and involved in extortion from the truckers. 

Soon after hearing the news of the arrest by 34 AR troops, residents of Mao and Maram areas came out and reportedly stormed the gate of the Assam Rifles post at Maram and demanded unconditional immediate release of the youth, claiming that he was innocent.
