The indefinite blockade in Senapati district was called off on Saturday following the release of the NSCN (I-M) cadre who was apprehended by Assam Rifles on Friday.

Tension ran high in Senapati town after AR troops arrested the NSCN (I-M) cadre. 

The incident was reportedly a fallout of Thursday’s incident where a captain of the Assam Rifles was overpowered by NSCN cadres while the AR team was in pursuit of NSCN cadres.

Following the arrest of the NSCN functionary, local residents came out to the streets in protest and blocked the Imphal-Dimapur highway and business establishments were also forced to down their shutters.

Meanwhile, officials said that the AR personnel had taken a “soft approach” to defuse the tension and restore normalcy.
