Imphal: Senapati District Students’ Association (SDSA) has imposed prohibition of all forms of economic interactions and transactions to Kuki-Zo community, and urged to Kuki to refrain from hampering vehicular movements along NH-2.

The student body in a statement released on Friday stated that in pursuance of the press statement on June 3, urgently appealing for all concerned parties to refrain from unnecessarily hampering vehicular movements along National Highway 2 (NH-2) and to maintain the highway as a safe zone, free from any form of harassment, the Committee on Tribal Unity (CoTU) has, however, completely ignored our statement and plea.

“Despite our hospitality, patience, understanding and neutrality in this ongoing conflict, the Kuki miscreants have had the audacity to set a truck on fire within our land and jurisdiction on the night of 19/06/2024 just below Tumuyon Khullen. We strongly condemn this act of arson, which is a direct challenge to our authority and also a grave threat to the safety and well-being of all communities. We demands that the culprits be booked and befitting punishments be given as per the Law, at the earliest,” the student body said.
