Despite the revelations and confessions of Head Constable Thounaojam Herojit on the fake encounter case where Chungkham Sanjit and Rabina lost their lives, there still is a powerful lobby working to suppress the repercussions as well as the inevitable outcome, and even when the civil society organizations have the perfect opportunity to lay bare the insidious and sustained secret campaign of fake encounters and murders that the state government has been carrying out for a long time, nothing specific or substantial has been taken up on the issue. It is becoming increasingly clear the civil organizations have been gagged and silenced. The unfortunate development or the lack of it, regarding the fake encounter case of 2009 has prompted the proscribed group Maoist Communist Party Manipur to declare a statewide General Strike on February 21 as a wake-up call to everybody to force the truth out. This was stated in a press release signed by Nonglen Meitei, Secretary Publicity and Propaganda of the group. The release further added that anything related with religious ceremony and journalists will be relaxed, while urging the people to resort to vehement protests and strikes to bring the culprits to justice.
