Imphal, Oct 14,
The hopes about restoration of normalcy in the Manipur University after the intervention of the Manipur High Court is likely to be sabotage again as the law enforcers seem to have no respect for the law in how to treat Professor when brought for medical check up.
The 6 MU teachers and some students were arrested based on false report by self proclaimed PRO VC Prof. Yugindro on the midnight of September 20. This was stated by the first citizen of the state - Her Excellency the Governor of Manipur. When questions about how could police detained any individual on false report by another individual were asked from various corner, the 6 Prof. and the students were still detained in judicial custody. No action has been so far proceeded against Pro VC for misleading the police force as well as for defaming the professors and the students of the state, yet the police continue to treat them as criminal.
A joint meeting of MUSU, MUTA and MUSA was held today morning to express extreme shock and anguish on the way that the police are treating to the 6 professors while bringing them to the hospital for health check up .
“While the veracity of the grounds of the FIR are under active social criticism in addition to the admission of Prof. Y Yugindro Singh himself of his complaints as false charges, the member expressed criticism of humanity with which the University faculty were being taken to hospital for medical treatment with their hands locked with hand-cuff”, the MU community said in a statement.
The meeting held today meeting condemn in the strongest terms the inhumane and insulting treatment of members of the University Community currently lodged in jail on false charges and even taking them to hospital with their hands cuffed as if they are hard core criminals
