Kohima: All trade and commercial activities in Nagaland came to a halt since Wednesday morning as NSCN(I-M) called 36-hour trade bandh in Naga inhabited areas of the region, officials said.

However, essential services, educational institutions and vehicular traffic were exempted from the purview of the bandh call which was effective from 6 am today.

Reports from district headquarters said attendance in offices were thin and less vehicles plied on the roads.

The trade bandh has been called by the outfit to protest "violation of ceasefire ground rules by the Centre, violation of human rights by disallowing NSCN(I-M) collective leadership from going to Zunheboto and deployment of security forces around the designated camp at Hebron (near Dimapur) without any provocation.

On January 14 a large convoy of NSCN(I-M) cadre accompanying their chairman Issac Chishi Chwu and general secretary Th Muivah was barred from moving to Zunheboto from camp Hebron by union home ministry, asserting that the leaders could move only with state police escort and consent of the centre.
