Large number of people belonging to Joint action committee against the brutal killing of Yumnam (N) Nongmaithem (O) Memicha Devi today attempted to storm at CM Bungalow at around 11.00 am demanding revocation of the government order to cremate the dead body of Memcha Devi.
Memcha Devi corpse was found brutally murdered on February 26 under paddy hush piled up at Samaram Panthak Loukol – a location which is close to her husband’s residence. She was reported missing since February 22 from her parental residence at Naharup pangong Makhong and a missing report has been filed at Porompat Police station. The JAC formed against the killing of the lady has been demanding proper investigation on how she was killed and has been urging govt. to award befitting punishment to those responsible her dead.
The large number of people who came to express their grievances were stopped by a team of state police in front of the Nupi Lal complex. The police team said that the Chief Minister is attending a function and asked them until his return.
Speaking to the media persons the Convener of Joint Action Committee AK Memcha said that the government order to cremate her is not justified but rather an attempt to close the case. She said they have already point figure to some suspects behind her dead but no action has been taken up. On the other hand the Convenor also expressed her anger to MLa O landhoni for allegedly asking them to say that the lady died after consuming poison.
She further added that until they submit their grievances to the CM they will not return back to their residence.
As the police senses trouble with the kind of protest by the JAC, all vehicles coming from Nongmeibung side were prevented to cross Sanjenthong bridge for some times.
