UNC bandh ends

IMPHAL, Dec 29: Though there were reports of arson on the first two days of the 72 hours bandh called by the United Naga Council (UNC), no such incidents were reported on the third day and it culminated on a peaceful note.

Barely one hour before the bandh came into effect, two rice laden trucks were set ablaze near Senapati ADC office. Three more vehicles were also set ablaze yesterday at Chawangkining under Kangpokpi police station yesterday.

Even as UNC maintained that all these cases of arson were not related with their bandh, police claimed that those miscreants which torch-ed three vehicles at Chawang- kining were suspected to be bandh supporters.

Apart from these two sepa-rate cases of burning five vehicles, there were no other reports of more untoward incidents during the 72 hours bandh.

Meanwhile, the Risophung Island and Leishiphung Joint Action Committee which was constituted in the wake of the reported molestation of a minor girl at Napetpalli on December 24 evening has handed over the same case to the UNC and Tangkhul Naga Long (TNL) for further action.

For further course of action, UNC and TNL are consulting the matter between them. As of now, no definite decision has been taken, informed a source.
