Imphal, July 4:

Miscreants burnt down the house of senior leader Seilen Haokip at Songpi in Churachandpur district on Monday night.
Spokesperson of KNO, Dr. Seilen Haokip while talking to a TV channel confirmed the burning of his house located 5 km from Churachandpur district headquarter. He said that some miscreants numbering around 4/5 came and burnt the house. At that time no one was present in the house. He said that the burning of his house may be because of the anger of the people for the lifting of the blockade at NH -2 in Kangpokpi area.
Indigenous Tribal Leaders Forum (ITLF) said that no one was injured in the attack which gutted a house in Songpi, nearly 5km from Churachandpur town. A car parked outside the house was also completely damaged.
“Unknown miscreants burned down the house of Seilen Haokip, Kuki National Organisation (KNO) spokesperson last night. This comes after KNO/United Peoples Front (UPF) lifted the blockade of National Highway-2,” ITLF spokesperson Ginza Vualzong said.
KNO and UPF issued a joint statement on Sunday to announce the end of the two-month-long blockade of a stretch of NH-2 in Manipur’s Kangpokpi district following a fresh appeal by Union home minister Amit Shah.
Seilen Haokip said his house was at an isolated location about 5km out of town. “Had it been in town, it (fire) could have spread. we have to contain the situation from escalation,” Haokip said.
