Imphal, Aug 23: Manipur High Court today announced its verdict quashing the police declaration of “Wanted Tag” to former JCILPS Convernor Khomdram Ratan.
Talking to reporters, Ratan’s counsel Sr. Advocate Khaidem Mani said that the writ petition filed by Khomdram Ratan challenging the wanted tag has been accepted by the court and after hearing the plea, the division bench of justice N Kotishwar and Kh Nobin pronounced that the criminal wanted tag declared to Kh. Ratan is not justified and should be deleted. Khaidem Mani further added that the division bench also quashed the police notification at which Ratan was declared absconding as he is not and stated that instead of the terminology wanted mention in the police press not should be replaced by words like information.
“In short the court has accepted Ratan’s plea that he is neither a wanted criminal nor an absconding individual and has given verdict to remove the wanted tag. This means that the case filed by Ratan is partly favoured to him”, Mani added.
The court also directed the police department to follow the procedure of law if it has to declare someone wanted.
