By CORRESPONDENT

While the blocked was going on three buses carrying armed Naga police arrived there and began quarreling with the picketers. They began to attack the picketers and opened fire in the air with their firearms. The picketers fled from the spot to save their lives and the Naga police went away without any obstruction.
