Imphal, June 30,
The chief secretary and his escorts were driving towards the Babupara MLA quarter when they asked Sevananda to give way for the chief secretary to overtake. On Sevananda’s refusal due to lack of space the escorts jumped down from their vehicle and threatened to beat up Sevananda after pushing him out of the way. The YFPHR suspect Suresh Babu told his escorts to act in the way they did. Earlier, an incident involving the Speaker of the Manipur Legislative Assembly have also been involved in one such incident, the YFPHR said appealing to the chief minister and Governor of the state to take action against the Chief Secretary and his escorts.
