As no amicable solution could be reached, the Sekmai Protection Committee re-affirmed their decision and imposed bandh from 6 am today. “This time it will be indefinite,” said a committee member while talking over phone.
Meanwhile, inter-state bus service and heavy trucks stay of the road due to the bandh at Sekmai.

Angom (o) Shanti, president of Advance Women Society Awang Sekmai the assault against Sekmai Protection Committee general secretary Laimayum Dhana by security escort of the Lamsang MLA S. Rajen cannot be taken lightly.
