Imphal Jan 8: Various human rights activists and relatives of those who had been involuntarily disappeared from their families today expressed their disappointment over the response of the government in taking up necessary steps to examine the human skulls which have been recovered from Tombisana High School.

Speaking in one day open public discussion organinzed by the All Manipur Students’ Union (AMSU) held today at Khunthokhanbi Shanglen, Babloo Loitongbam, Executive Director, Human Right Alert said that the recovery of human skulls from Tombisana High School is a very serious issue for the people of the state. Due to this many civil society organizations and human rights body urged the government to halt the excavation at the site where the skulls were recovered. However, the government did not pay a heed of it. The government continued their excavation at the site till the volunteers of AMSU rushed at the site and banned the excavation work.

He further said that on that the government persuaded the volunteers of the students’ organization not to ban the excavation work mentioning the need of completing some portion of construction of market shed during the financial year. “This means that the government is not concerned about conducting inquiry the recent recovery of human skulls” Babloo added. Instead of that the government is giving emphasis on contract works.

Babloo continued that even though the government decided to hand over the matter to the CBI, the gazette notification is yet to be published. This is also is negligence of the government of Manipur.

Ranjit, president of Families of the Involuntarily Disappeared Association, Manipur (FIDAM), said that the where about of the skulls should be disclosed to the people of the state to protect from any unwanted incidents. He said that till now more than 20 cases of involuntary disappearance have been recorded by the association. The number of such cases might be more than this figure. He also requested the people of the state to inform to FIDAM if any of their family members disappeared in the past few years.
