IT News

Imphal, July 7,

Human Rights Initiatives (HRI) expressed strong condemnation to the act of life attempt by shooting at the daughter of Human Rights Defender Mr. Urikhimbam Nobokishore and Mangsatabam Sobita on the 4th July 2019 at Thongju Boroi Makhong.

“Such an act of attack by gun is highly condemnable and the perpetrators need to be arrested and punished under the rule of law”, a press statement by Manoj Thokchom said.

It added that the incident occurred at 6:30pm when their daughter namely Thoibi was driving a Bolero Jeep along with two or three of her friends from Singjamei while they were returning from the market after buying some container to pack Khechri.  While on their way towards her home all of a sudden a Gypsy white in colour packed with some men horned loudly and over took her vehicle. Later they happen again to meet at Thongju Boroi Makhong wherein she over took and crossed the road and stopped in front of her residence.

After been parked, the Gypsy followed them again and stopped at the opposite side on the NH 1 and shouted using slangs which challenged the modesty of women. In response to the action the girls also shouted back and had a heated argument. As a result, one among the person in the Gypsy took out a gun and shot towards them and speeded the vehicle towards Canchipur, fortunately, no one was hurt. The act is very much related to discrimination of women and girls.

The incident is highly believed to be well organized to threaten her family members, especially to her parents who are actively working on the Human Rights Based Approach. It could be mentioned that Mr. Nobokishore and Ms. Sobita have been under attack since October 2017 by various miscreants suspected to be used by some influential people of the state and others. 

The HRI appealed the Singjamei Police to initiate speedy investigation and to arrest the people involved in the shooting and be punished according to the rule of law. It also appealed the Home Department to stop giving Gun license to avoid gun culture in the state.
