Dimapur, May 04 2010: The Naga Students' Federation (NSF) has banned any vehicle coming from Manipur to Nagaland since this evening.

The move of the NSF has been prompted by the act of Manipur security forces personnel blocking NSF leaders crossing Mao-Gate in the Nagaland-Manipur border on Monday.

Sources said that the NSF will impose the ban of vehicles from Manipur entering Nagaland so long as the government of Manipur tender apology to the Naga students' body for the Monday episode.

The NSF leaders on Monday tried to cross the Mao Gate but the security forces personnel manning the border refused permission to the students' leaders.

The security forces mostly the Manipur police commandos and IRB personnel have been manning the border area along the National Highway 39 in order to prevent NSCN-IM general secretary Thuigaleng Muivah from visiting his native village Somdal in Ukhrul, Manipur.
