JAC claims Ngangom Nevy’s remains for last rites in Kakching

Imphal, Feb 13:

The Joint Action Committee (JAC) protesting the heinous murder of Ngangom Nevy has agreed to claim of his decomposed remains. Nevy, a 17-year-old from Sugnu Awang Leikai, tragically succumbed to the brutality of Kuki militants on May 28, 2023. The grim discovery of his skeletal remains occurred on February 1, in Sokom village within Chandel district, intensifying the anguish and demands for justice from the aggrieved community.
Speaking to Imphal Times, the JAC Convenor Ahanthem Chanthoi stated: “The JAC and family members have agreed to receive the body of Ngangom Nevy, and his last rites will be performed at Machin Manao Ching in Kakching District.”
She continued, emphasizing the agreements made with the government: “We have reached an understanding with the government. The JAC demanded justice for Nevy by apprehending all the Kuki narco-terrorists responsible for the attack and murder of civilians.
We also demanded the removal of illegal Kuki immigrants from Manipur. This heinous crime took place in an area where Assam Rifles are stationed, and it could have been prevented. We are dismayed by the perceived incapacity of the Assam Rifles to control the situation, leading to Nevy’s death. Therefore, we have requested their replacement. Additionally, we have urged the Chief Minister to provide a government job to Nevy’s next of kin to support his family.”
The grieving family, led by Ngangom Nevy’s father, N. Sanakhomba, officially reported his disappearance to Sugnu Police Station on May 31, 2023, as the young boy’s body remained untraceable until that date. Prior to this, the JAC, resonating with the sentiments of the bereaved family, not only demands the harshest punishment for the perpetrators but also advocates for justice in the form of providing a government job for a member of Nevy’s family.
