Imphal, Jan. 11:

The joint apex civil bodies of Churachandpur District in a press release stated that, it is aghast at the persistent harassment meted out to Lhukhosei Zou, Former Chairman, ADC Chandel who had faced trial at the ND &PS Court, Manipur for more than two and half years. Zou was acquitted after proven innocent on the 17th December, 2020.
The release stated that, “It is more shocking to learn that the agitation, dharnas and pressure exerted to the government to appeal the case to the High Court by some misled civil organizations who are sponsored by political parties and some vested individuals to tarnish the image of the government. During the pendency of the case in 2018-19, these civil organization demanded clean and speedy trial of the case and as such the case was speedily and thoroughly conducted unlike any other case and final judgement was delivered. Based on the judgement of the trial Court (ND & PS), Tungkhanmung Zou and Thangminlun Zou were found guilty and sentenced to 15 years imprisonment and the same Court acquitted Lhukhosei Zou and five others as they were found innocent. “
The organizations appreciate the Court as it performed its duty sincerely and diligently during the trial. Pressuring the government to appeal the case will set a bad precedence for the future as it can burden the state with multiple court appeals and bring conflict between the judiciary, the legislature and the executive and vice-versa, the statement released by the joint apex Civil bodies said.
Further, the release states, “The joint apex civil bodies of Churachandpur District request the government not to appeal Lhukhosei Zou’s case on the mere demand of few vested civil organization sponsored by some political parties. Otherwise, the civil bodies of Churachandpur District will not remain a mute spectator if these civil societies continue to promote somebody’s ulterior design.”
It may be mention that former ADC of Chandel, Lhukhosei Zou was arrested along with seven others by a team of Narcotics and Affairs of Border (NAB) along with drugs worth over Rs 27 crore On June 20, 2018. However, the Special Court (ND&PS) in acquitted Lhukhosei Zou, and six others stating that the prosecution has totally failed to prove the charges leveled against them.
