Tengnoupal, July 23:  The Kuki Students Organisation (KSO), Moreh has called off the 24-hour total shutdown in Moreh town protesting against the brutal murder of a teenage girl.
The student body had imposed the strike from 6:00 pm of July 23 to 6:00 pm of July 24 but it was called off late in the evening Sunday following an appeal from the Khongsai Inpi, Tengnoupal district.
Sources in KSO-Moreh informed that the shutdown had been called off. Earlier, an agreement was reached between the Khongsai Inpi, Tengnoupal district and KNO/KNA over the killing of the girl, they said. 
The student body vehemently condemned the brutal killing of a Class IX girl student by one Seikhosat Haokip at her residence on Sunday  morning.
A student of Mt Moreh High School, Nengneingah Khongsai,18, was shot dead at point blank by Seikhosat Haokip, 21, at around 5:00 am.
Nengneingah was with her younger sister when Seikhosat intruded the house and shot her dead inside her room. 
The KSO-M said it is outraged by the horrendous crime committed on an innocent girl student and termed it as a barbaric and dastardly act.
Condemning the incident the KSO-M in a statement said that such an  inhuman act is beyond belief and completely intolerable.
 ”It is a complete disregard to student community. The heinous crime has brought a tsunami of shock among the public in general and in student community in particular,” the statement said.
 KSO-Moreh had imposed the 24-hour total shutdown in and around Moreh town from 6:00 pm of July 23 to 6:00 pm of July 24 to protest the incident.
The KSO Moreh urged the government to  award befitting punishment to the culprit. It also appealed to the general public to support the strike.
It said the KSO-Moreh deeply mourns the untimely demise of the student and prays for her heavenly solace and extends deepest condolences and sympathies to the bereaved family.
