Imphal, November 20 2016:
Altogether 284 loaded trucks/tankers reached Imphal this night along Imphal-Jiribam highway.
The convoy escorted by security personnel was impeded for sometime as they were attacked by economic blockade supporters near Nung Dolan who pushed down boulders from the hill tops.
Some of the transporters sustained minor injuries in the process while some trucks/tankers were also damaged.
The security escorts retaliated the attack by opening fire in the air.
Despite the impedance, the convoy moved and it crossed Khongsang at around 5.30 pm.
The convoy included 31 tankers loaded with petrol, 53 tankers loaded with diesel, 59 tankers loaded with LPG, one tanker loaded with ATF, one tanker loaded with SK Oil and 138 trucks transporting different FCI commodities.
