Imphal , July 1:
A 28 years-old woman Thanjiklu Remmei, wife of Milanpou Remmei of Namthalung village (Muji Khul), Imphal West, who is a mother of two kids alleged that her two-months foetus was murdered by four persons after she was severely beaten up in public on June 6 this year. She alleged police inaction against those culprits responsible for the killing of her unborn child.
Villagers of Muji Khul in Thangmeiband Assembly constituency today staged a protest demonstration at their village entry demanding punishment of the culprits behind the heinous action while denouncing police inaction on the report filed by the victim.
Advisor of Women society of Namthalung Village, Alu Kamei talking to reporters said that the police seemed to be protecting the four culprits identified as Aking Gangmei, Adim, Meipipou and Kagadai who had assaulted the two months pregnant lady following which the foetus was killed. Speaking to mediapersons Alu Kamei said that the Police are not taking any action against the culprits even though report about the matter has been submitted.
“Some girls too supported by pulling my hair and the three to four persons kicked at my stomach where I was carrying my two-months old foetus”, Thanjiklu Gangmei said.
After that she was taken to RIMS with serious injury as the foetus started bleeding and coming out, and the next day she underwent abortion in a private hospital.
MLA of Thangmeiband Assembly constituency, Khumukcham Joykishan called on the protest site and assured all assistance to mete out justice to the affected lady.
“Foetus killing is not different from murder crime”, the MLA said. He added that when there is complete evidence of a crime being committed why the culprits are not arrested and given punishment as per the law of the land.
“The kind of attitude shows that there is no governance in the state”, Joykishan said and appealed to the concerned to do the needful..
