IMPHAL, June 12: The militant outfit URF has banned hiring out or renting of hotels, halls and other places to network companies such as Amway, Tiens, Bajaj-Alliance, Herbal Life in the state with immediate effect.
In a statement signed by its publicity secretary, AK Pibarel, the URF has warned anyone found going against its diktat to willingly face dire consequences.
