CCpur, March 3:

Five farmers belonging to Suangphu village, Singngat Sub-division of Churachandpur District were beaten up and seriously injured by armed cadres under suspension of operation with the government between 3 to 4 pm on Wednesday on their way to paddy fields. The five persons were identified as Mansonkhup (21 years) s/o Manglamkap, Pauminthang (34 years) s/o Thangzasuan, Thangkhankhup (37 years) s/o Chinsuanmang, all residents of Suangphu village situated near the Indo-Myanmar border in Churachandpur district. As per the statement of the victims, they were assaulted by cadres of ZRA.

Report said the five persons were on their way to work to paddy fields when all of a sudden some armed miscreants suspected to be cadres of ZRA waylaid them and took to their Muvanlai designated camp near Singngat sub-division headquarter where they were beaten black and blue.

All five were undergoing treatment at Singngat Community Health Centre (CHC). News reporters who visited the Singhat CHC witnessed that the injured farmers were not able to stand up on their feet. The incident is believed to be the repercussion of the recently held 12th Manipur MLA Election 2022 where first phase of the polling was held on 28th February in some constituencies including 60-Singhat AC. Out of four candidates in the fray, the BJP and KPA candidates were seen to be two heavyweights tussling for poll victory in Singhat AC.

As per the statement of the five persons, they were tortured and beaten up and were forced to sign on a paper stating that they will not do anything against the Zomi interest in future. They said that they were further warned of “death” if they continue to do so, and even leak this incident to anyone. When asked about what they did against the “Zomi interest”, the victims answered that they were beaten up just because they supported the KPA party during this election.
