Imphal, Aug 27

Manipur University of Culture Teachers’ Association (MUCTA) condemned the mugging of Yengkhom Sanjitkumar, Assistant Professor of Thang-Ta s/o Yengkhom Deben, Waiton Mamang Leikai, yesterday August 26, 2019, Monday, on his way back home by some unknown persons. In a press release signed by Dr. Irom Robindro, Secretary MUCTA, they said that in this very unfortunate event, the unknown persons robbed his bag containing his papers, books, and a mobile handset. The incident happened on the way from Sawombung Tejpur to Waiton in the evening at around 7:30 pm. What is more unfortunate is that those who robbed his belongings turned and fired when chased, they added. University Community is fortunate on his return to University without any injury, but MUCTA questioned what had bothered these people to conduct such insensitive acts on the teacher working wholeheartedly in the field of Manipuri culture. If this was by some drug addict robbers, they requested in their statement for the concerned authorities to bring out the culprits and punish them and take up necessary steps to prevent such incidents from happening in future.
