Imphal March 8,
Youth’s Forum for Protection of Human Rights (YFPHR) regret to learn that the death of Pravish Chanam’s case have been disposed without any probe of the death by the Chief Judicial Magistrate, Gautam Budha Nagar after the I.O of the case Mr. Manish Saxena submitted its FINAL REPORT (FR) or FINAL FORM/ REPROT Bearing FR No: 535/18 on the 23rd of July, 2018 mentioning that none of the perpetrators could be booked or arrested till date.
One cannot deny the fact that just after two months from the date of disposal of the case by the CJM, the Superintendent of Police, CBI SCB, Lucknow issued a letter addressing to the President of Kanglei Ima Lup on the 20th of September, 2018 mentioning that “the State Police is well equipped and has professionally trained STF, CBCID and other specialized branch to either assist or undertake the investigation of better professional management of Investigation. Hence, this case was not found suitable to be taken up for the investigation by CBI and the decision of Govt. of India has also been communicated to the Chief Secretary, Government of UP”
On the other hand the Mr. Bhagwan Swarup, Secretary of Home, Government of UP issued a notification bearing its reference no. 326(2)P/VI-P-3-2018-4(36)P/17 dated 29th of January, 2018 mentioning that the matter has been recommended for CBI Investigation of the case crime no. 1023/2017 U/s. 302, 201 IPC. The CBI PROFORMA submitted by the Department of Home further mentioned in the CBI PROFORMA Point no. 6 that “There is a probability that persons from native state of deceased or neighboring state like Delhi, Haryana, Rajasthan etc may be behind the crime hence it may be difficult for local police to unearth such conspiracy.”
Here lies the dilemma that
Who is investigating the disposed case of Pravish Chanam by the CJM, Gautam Budh Nagar?
Is STF, CBCID mentioned by the CBI Lucknow Branch investigating the disposed case where the Final Report have been submitted by Mr. Manish Saxena, Inspector, Sector-20 Noida on the 23rd July, 2018?
Why Chief Minister of Manipur is silent when being fooled by the Government of UP and Central Government?
All these circumstances clearly reveal that the death of Pravish Chanam is a high level serious political crime.
YFPHR, therefore, appeal the government of Manipur to pray before the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India to transfer the matter of Pravish Chanam’s murder case to the Hon’ble High Court of Manipur immediately and the trial be conducted in Manipur.
