SENAPATI, May 4: Suspected supporters of some intending candidates of the ADC election yesterday ransacked the NPF Manipur unit office at Senapati District Head Quarter due to delay of declaration of ticket to certain candidates.
According to police sources, the incident was a fall out of the postponement of declaration of party tickets for a constituency of the NPF Senapati division for the upcoming ADC election.
The frustration of the delay led to a quarrel at the NPF Office, Senapati DHQ at around 3.00 P.M which later turned violent.
It is learnt that the NPF party ticket was not allotted for a particular area under 49 Tadubi Constituency since there were many intending candidates applying for the party ticket in the area.
Though meetings were hold to resolve the solution amicably yesterday, the issue remained unsettled and the quarrel broke out in the afternoon.
Things got worse when the mob became wild.
The outraged mobs allegedly damaged the office’s furniture and files and inflicted injuries to some NPF members.
Many files were destroyed and drawers, almirah, tables and chairs inside the office were also damaged by the mob.
Later in the evening, local MLAs Dr.V.Alexander Pao and L.Dikho rushed to the DHQ and spoke to the mob and dispersed the crowd.(IFP)
