Imphal, July 11: The Central Organising Committee of Maoist Communist Party, Manipur observed a memorial function on the death anniversary of Th Manorama who was allegedly killed by security forces after passing her through unmentionable torture. A communiqué released today by the coordinator of standing committee Kyonghan Mangang said the members of the standing committee of the party stood two minutes in silence as a mark of respect to Manorama. The day Manorama was murdered by the Indian army is a very significant one to the MCPM. Around this period the Manipur Forward Youth Front (MAFYF) was engaged in a movement to expose fake encounters and extra-judicial methods used by the ‘imperialist force,’ the statement claimed. It recounted further that the news of her death was passed on to the president of MAFYF by a sympathizer of the organization. Her body had been brought to RIMS mortuary by that time. A team of MAFYF led by president Sapamcha Kangleipal reached there to offer grief and promised the people from her locality gathered there that intense forms of protest will be launched for justice, it added. According to the statement, many personnel of the state police and security persons at the morgue were seen in tears unable to control themselves after learning about the gory nature of her killing. One subinspector reportedly muttered that the manner she was murdered was inhumane, according to the MCPM note. The Apunba Lup was established in the courtyard of the deceased woman and MAFYF passed on the baton of the movement for bringing justice to Manorama to the conglomerate in holding faith to a united struggle. The MCPM’s faith in a united struggle is still alive without any blemish, the Maoist group stated adding that it is prepared to make every contribution and make extreme sacrifices. Time has made it necessary to replace the colonial court that has shut its doors with a people’s court which will have the people of Manipur as its arbitrator, the statement stated.
