Naga students to block Manipur vehicles

The powerful Naga Students’ Federation (NSF) said that vehicles owned and registered in Manipur would not be allowed to enter Naga inhabited areas spread over the two states of Nagaland and Manipur from Wednesday.

The decision is aimed at pressuring the Manipur government to take action against security personnel who allegedly harassed NSF members during their visit to Imphal.

“We will stop entry of all Manipur vehicles into Naga populated areas unless action is taken against the police commandos who harassed our activists on February 15,” said Nagaland-based NSF president Subenthing Kigam.

The NSF said its members, who were on their way to Ukhrul district in Manipur to attend the Lui Ngai Ni — the seed sowing festival of the Nagas in Manipur, were intercepted at Mantri Pukhri near Imphal.

 The NSF later submitted a memorandum to Manipur Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh on February 16 alleging the Manipur Police commandos harassed its delegates, snatched their mobile phones and unnecessarily detained them.
