Naga students take out a peace rally in Guwahati

By Teronpi

Guwahati, May 9 (ANI): Members of the Naga Students Association took part in a peace rally here on Saturday to express their solidarity with Naga sentiments.

The demonstration was in the context of the Manipur Government barring the rebel Naga leader Thuingaleng Muivah from visiting his ancestral village Somdal in Ukhrul District.

"We want to express our solidarity with our people back home and particularly those of them who have lost their lives for no fault of theirs," said Asoward, Advisor of Naga Students Association.

The Manipur Government has banned Muivah's visit, contending that it will create a law and order problem.

At least three persons were killed when security forces fired tear gas shells, mock bombs and live bullets to control a crowd, who were vandalising and setting afire police vehicles and other goods kept at the Mao Town Hall after their attempt to take out a protest rally against the decision to bar Muivah from visiting Manipur.

Muivah wanted to visit Somdal between May 3 and 10. (ANI)
