Following the confession made by Head Constable Th. Herojit, CBI has reopened the case of the alleged fake encounter case of July 23, 2009. This was stated by Th. Chaoba, President, Manipur Pradesh BJP in a press meet held today.
The BJP Manipur Pradesh president also re-iterated its demand for resignation of Manipur Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh on moral ground for presenting concocted report to the floor of the Manipur Legislative Assembly on the day of the incident.
Confession of the Manipur Police head constable Th. Herojit on how he shot death an unarmed 23 years old youth Ch. Sanjit in broad daylight of July 23, 2009 is adding another score to the BJP which has been harnessing all effort to throw out the congress regime.
The BJP Manipur Pradesh president is not sparing this favarouble opportunity except a little worried about their newly enrolled member, former DGP Yumnam Joykumar, whom the Head Constable had stated that he too along with the Chief Minister of Manipur Okram Ibobi Singh were given prior information about the order to kill the unarmed youth by the then Additional SP Dr. Ak. Jhalajit, who is now the SP of Imphal West district police.
Now adding a twist to the already troubled Okram Ibobi Singh government, the BJP Manipur Pradesh today demanded his resignation on Moral ground. The party also demanded suspension of Imphal West district SP Dr. AK Jhalajit until the final verdict of the case has been spelled out.
CM Okram Ibobi Singh was that time in-charge of Home department when the (staged) encounter took place at most crowded place in Imphal city. Assembly session was underway on the day, and in the August house of state legislative Assembly the Okram Ibobi had stated that the police had left with no choice but to exterminate Ch. Sanjit.
President of the BJP Manipur Pradesh said that 1528 cases of alleged fake encounter remains pending in Supreme Court of India. Out of this 1528 cases happened during 2002 to 2012 when congress government is in power in the state with Okram Ibobi Singh as the Chief Minister. The killing of pregnant woman Rabina and 23 years old youth Sanjit in staged encounter on July 23, 2009 was also occurred during the tenure of Okram Ibobi Singh.
