Imphal, Nov 22,
Youth’s Forum for Protection of Human Rights (YFPHR) highly appreciate the government of Manipur for the assurance given by the Chief Minister during the meeting which was held on the 20th of November, 2018 along with the members of the People Action Committee informing that the Government of Manipur will assist the PAC in taking further course of action at the legal forum or other forum if the CBI fails to take up legal action on the latest proposal in the next 20 (Twenty) days.
Since the last 1 year and 2 months, the death of Pravish Chanam is yet to be probe or investigated by the Government of UP neither the CBI as the CBI, Lucknow Branch had earlier informed in its letter date 20th Sept, 2018 that “the Up Police is well equipped and has professionally trained STF, CBCID and other specialized branch to either assist or undertake the investigation of better professional management of investigation. Hence the case was not found suitable to be taken up for the investigation by the CBI”.
Learning from the same the government of Manipur have resolved in its Cabinet meeting and “Approved to recommend for a CBI investigation” on the 6th of Nov, 2018. However, it is still in dilemma whether the matter will be investigated by the CBI or not as in the earlier recommendation made by the UP Government for the investigation clearly mentioned in its CBI Memo or Performa that “there is a probabilities of involvement of people from the neighbouring state like Delhi, Haryana and Rajasthan etc” but the recommendation made by UP government was rejected by the CBI.
Expressing that the Forum believed that it is a white collar crime committed as a result no concern investigating agency is willing to investigate but those criminal should not forget the Peoples Voice and Power the Forum appealed to the people of Manipur that to stand united until the justice is delivered to the deceased soul and this will forum will always support like earlier in every steps taken up by the PAC to fight for Justice for PravishChanam and racial discrimination towards the North East People.
