GOLAGHAT, Sept 24 (PTI) - The All Assam Students' Union (AASU) today temporarily lifted the economic blockade on roads leading to Nagaland after the neighbouring state suspended a top officer allegedly involved in the firing and assault of AASU members here.

The protesters had blocked supply of essential commodities through the key NH-39 in protest against the September 15 incident when the student activists were allegedly fired upon by the Nagaland police injuring 22 people, some of them seriously.

AASU executive member Jatin Bora told PTI the blockade was lifted temporarily from 2.30 am following the suspension of Company Commander of the India Reserve Battalion (IRB) and announcement of Rs 5 lakh ex gratia to the injured by the Nagaland government.

The neighbouring state had constituted an inquiry committee to probe the incident and also requested the Nagaland Students' Federation for withdrawal of the blockade on humanitarian grounds, he said.
