A driver was injured when unknown hill-based militants pelted stones at several vehicles passing through NH-53 (Imphal-Jiribam-Silchar Road), official reports said on Monday.

Militants threw stones at vehicles at Noney area in Manipur's Tamenglong district last night injuring a driver identified as A Sanayaima (48) and damaging several vehicles.

It was not known why the militants pelted stones, the reports said adding that there was no blockade or bandh on national highways now.

The Transporters and Drivers Council (TDC) Manipur had decided not to ply any vehicle (truck and passenger bus) on NH-39 (Imphal-Kohima-Dimapur) since so many organisations including militants extorted money from vehicle owners and drivers.
