The Manipur government has on Thursday informed Myanmar authority no vehicles from the neighbouring country would be allowed to violate Indian traffic rules and regulation on Indian territory.

In a letter to Deputy Commissioner, Tamu, Myanmar, Kh Raghumani Singh, Deputy Commissioner, Tengnoupal district said it has been observed that Myanmar vehicles entering India through Indo-Myanmar Friendship Gate No 1 have been violating Indian traffic rules and regulation.

This was resulted in accidents in the past and there are risks of tragic accidents taking place in future again, the letter said.
