Imphal, June 9: ‘A stitch in time saves nine’ – this time the state cyber crime unit of the Manipur Police department did a commendable job by acting on time. 4 boys accused of a crime scene in which a non local boy was brutally assaulted, caught on video and found uploaded on social media were arrested within 24 hours by the state police department led by Additional SP of Imphal West Dr. S Ibomcha.
Among the four accused arrested today morning, two have been identified as Maibam Rajson Singh (19 yrs ) S/O M. Lemba Singh of Nagamapal Kangjabi Leirak Machin and Maibam Rajbirshal Singh(18 yrs) S/O M. Lemba Singh of Nagamapal Kangjabi Leirak Machin. The identity of the other two accused cannot be disclosed as both are minors.
Many people who had seen the video spreading on a social networking site expressed shock and condemnation of the bestial act. Some said the boys were trying to sabotage the peoples’ movement for introduction of ILPS in the state which has nothing to do with the presence of non-locals in the state.
“I have seen the video, it was bad very bad”, said Hijam Rajesh, editor of a reputed newspaper published here in Imphal.
