Additionally, it has also taken strong exception to the recent incidents of violence against non-Manipuris by motorcycle-borne miscreants.

In this regard, the police said that over ten individuals allegedly involved in the extortion campaigns and assaults on non-locals in the city areas were rounded up.

The Bandh was called after the arrests of three alleged valley-based insurgent cadres with the recovery of Rs 1.9 lakh during the operations in the Thangal bazaar area recently.
