Underground outfits call for boycotting I-Day

Six proscribed organisations in the northeast region have appealed to people to boycott the Independence Day. They have also called a general strike aimed at sabotaging the celebrations.

In view of the boycott call, security measures have been intensified in the States, where these groups have considerable influence.

In Manipur, prohibitory orders have been clamped. The Army and State forces have been directed to launch combing operations in trouble-prone areas to ensure there is no disturbance.
