A Correspondent, Kohima
The authorities have imposed Night Curfew from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. in the areas of Assam side bordering Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh and thereby prohibiting movement of any person or group as well as

any vehicular traffic in the 5 km belt in Assam side bordering Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh falling in Sivasagar district.            

The promulgation of prohibitory order under Section 144 Cr P.C. reinforcing the Night Curfew has been necessitated following reports that unlawful activities coming across Assam, Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh border may indulge in unlawful acts resulting in injury, loss of human life, extortion and destruction of properties in the bordering areas.  

Security personnel and civil officials deployed on duty are exempted from the purview of the prohibitory order.
