Shutdown paralyses life in Moreh

The 24-hour total shutdown call given by social organisations in the border town under Tengnoupal district on the India-Myanmar border over the killing of a woman labourer hit normal life on Tuesday. 

Normal commercial activities in Moreh town came to a grinding halt as all shops and business establishments down shutters in the markets due to the strike that began from 8 pm of May 22. 

A shanti Devi, 47, was shot dead by two unknown motorcycle borne assailants who opened fire on her at Moreh Gate No.4.

Moreh and Namphalong markets located on the fringe of Indo-Myanmar border wore a deserted look due to the shutdown. Strike supporters burnt tyres on different roads to block traffic movement since early morning. A massive sit-in protest was also observed by womenfolk of the town at different areas to condemn the killing. No untoward incidents have been reported so far during the ongoing bandh which ends at 8 pm today.
