IMPHAL, Jan 31 � Normal life along Imphal-Moreh Road came to a grinding halt for the second day on Saturday owing to an indefinite bandh imposed by villagers of Tengnoupal village in Chandel district of Manipur.
The indefinite bandh was called in protest against denial of free movement to the villagers by Assam Rifles troops deployed in Tengnoupal sector. The bandh has also affected the Indo-Myanmar border trade as the 110-km Imphal-Moreh road, the only vital link for the trade, has been blocked.
Large numbers of women came out to block the Imphal-Moreh section of NH 102 at Tengnoupal and shouted slogans against the Assam Rifles.
The bandh will continue unless the 24 Assam Rifles is shifted to another place.
