Strike halts normal life in Manipur

Normal life was brought to a standstill and over 50 vehicles were damaged at various places during the 48-hour Manipur bandh called to protest the killing of a Sub-Divisional Officer and his two staff members by suspected hill-based militants, official reports said.
Supporters of the bandh, called by a local action committee and supported by several major social organisations, damaged vehicles at Sagolband, Kakwa, Yumnam Leikai and many other places for defying it, the reports said.
They said supporters of the bandh blocked the road at many places in Imphal and greater Imphal areas and set afire vehicle tyres at major roads here.
