JAC Against the Brutal Killing of Md. Lukaman has stated that they were compelled to launch the agitation as the Government failed to arrest the culprits behind the murder of Md Lukaman despite the memorandum to the Chief Minister seeking his intervention in tracing the murderers.
JAC Convenor Md Liyakut Ali in a statement said the murdered 27 year old Md. Likaman had gone from his mother‘s village Kiyamgei Muslim to Kiyamgei Urup to take part in a Estima religious function on March 16, but failed to return home and disappeared without a trace. A missing report was thereafter filed with the Irilbung Police Station, Imphal East, on March 17, and the disappearance was also notified in the local cable TV channels. Later news reached the family of the deceased that he was recovered dead at Heingang Ahallup Bazaar, with marks of a brutal murder and his body had been deposited at the JNIMS mortuary, he said. While appealing the people to support the agitation, he said that the demand of JAC is to press the government to deliver justice to victim family. No one should manage to create communal tension while the agitation is on.
