Imphal, May 28: Kangleipak Students’ Association (KSA) today demanded unconditional release of the five student volunteers including their general secretary Sukham  Bidyananda , who were arrested by a team of city police from its office located at Keishampat Sega Road within 24 hours. The 5 students were arrested on charge of seizing salt packets which the student body alleged those items to have been adulterated and also for interrogating the owners of the grocery shops who sold those adulterated edible items.
Speaking to media persons, Human Resource Secretary of the KSA Angouton Khuman at its office today morning said that police arrested their fellow colleagues under the instigation of some few individuals close to the government. The HRD Secy. Is indirectly pointing to a person trying to contest election at Wangkhei Assembly constituency, who happen to be a relative of Manipur Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh.
One among the 2 shop owners interrogated by the KSA hails from Telepati in Imphal East which falls under Wangkhei Assembly constituency.
The KSA HRD secretary while speaking to media persons said the reason for the arrest of the KSA volunteers as they as a student body are only checking the selling of adulterated food items as those concerned government departments had failed to do so. 
“Police action is condemnable as they are letting those trying to kill the people move freely and detained those who tried to stop selling of adulterated food”, Angouton Khuman said.
The student leader further said that KSA has imposed public curfew to both the family members of the two grocery shops besides indefinite closure of the shops until the volunteers of the KSA including its general secretary are released unconditionally.

Drug baron are again supporting food adulteration for electoral gain in the forthcoming Assembly election. Such drug king ping family need to apologize to public for their heinous crime of food poisoning otherwise angry general public punish under mob justice. See how Bihari traders using some local politicians like drug baron to harm the general public justifies the demand for ILPS in Manipur.
