Normal life crippled in Manipur on Saturday due to 24-hour statewide bandh called by women vendors of Khwairamband Bazaar against the ambush allegedly by NSCN (IM) on Thursday.

Women in several districts of the state took to the streets and blocked the vehicular movement in their protest against NSCN (IM) who allegedly killed three Manipur police personnel and injured eight others, a police official said.

They displayed placards saying “Remove NSCN-IM from Manipur”, “Declare United Naga Council an unlawful organisation” among others, he said.

All business establishments including markets, shops, hotels, entertainment houses, schools, colleges and universities remained closed, the official said adding all inter-state and inter-district bus, taxis and auto-rickshaws were off the road.
