Speaking to the media, one Elangbam Shanti, a protester said that the deputy commissioners of both Imphal West and Kangpokpi district had issued directions to conduct the boundary demarcation of the two villages within May 24 and 26.

Unfortunately, volunteers of Kangchup Area Land Protection Committee interfered on Tuesday and stopped the demarcation process, she said. “We strongly condemned such interference after both the villagers of Khadangband and Ireng had already agreed for the demarcation on May 13,” she said.

She urged outsiders not to interfere in the boundary settlement between the two villages, and appealed to the state government to take up the demarcation process so that a permanent boundary of the two villages may be settled.
