Imphal, Sept 20
Police today foiled the public meeting convened by the JAC Against the Murder of Ningthoujam Babysana at THAU Ground, Thangmeiband. The meeting was announced by the JAC through a press statement yesterday. The police foiled the meeting as the JAC could not get permission from the District Magistrate, as the area has been under CrPC 144.
The JAC has been demanding the Government to hand over the investigation over the death of 14 years old Ningthoujam Babysana , who was found hanged to death at her hostel room of Standard Robarth Canchipur on July 18. The State Government even though had written to the CBI for taking up the case, CBI is yet to announce the handling of the case officially. Earlier, this newspaper had reported that the CBI had agreed in principal to take the case as the matter is of public interest. However, the CBI is yet to announce it official statement regarding the case. The JAC member while talking over phone to this newspaper said that the CBI is delaying in taking the case as the state government is not giving any pressure to the central authority. It also alleged intentional delay from the side of the state government as it does not want to hand over the case to the CBI.
