Normal life was today affected with vehicular traffic were out of gear and shops and business establishments downed shutters as 12-hour bandh called by Naga Students' Federation (NSF) began this morning in the state. The strike was part of North East Students Organisation's (NESO) decision to impose bandh in all the north eastern states except in Assam demanding a concrete step from the Centre to detect and deport foreign nationals from North-East. The NSF is a constituent body of NESO. Official sources said all the shops and business establishments in the capital town Kohima and commercial hub Dimapur remained closed while the bandh hit the normal traffic on the road. Hardly anyone turned to the government offices, banks and other financial institutions across the state. However, the schools and colleges remained close as the government declared today as holiday for Teachers' Day. The situation remained peaceful so far and no report of any untoward incident received from any part of the state, the sources said.
