Imphal, June 4: State police inaction in finding out the cause of the mysterious death of a 23 years old youth on May 20 this year has provoked mother of the deceased son to bring out the issue to public platform seeking help to deliver justice to her departed son.
The youth, identified as Thingbaijam Ramananda, son of Th. Ingocha and Th (Ongbi) Sanatombi Devi) of Lamlongei Maning Leikai, under Lamshang Police station succumbed after he had allegedly consumed poison on May 19. The deceased Ramananda’s father is a paralysis patient and mother Th (Ongbi) Sanatombi, is a daily wage earner by running a small vendor at Kwairambandh Keithel Temporary market shed.
Speaking to Imphal Times, Th (Ongbi) Sanatombi said that she was informed by the girl friend of Ramananda about the incident and said that her son has been admitted at Raj Medicity, North AOC, Imphal at around 4 pm. Sanatombi after informing her elder son Shantikumar and other relatives could only reached the hospital at around 5 pm on that day.
The deceased’s girl friend informed her that, her son Ramananda had consumed poison after having some argument with her and they immediately brought him at Raj Medicity.
Hospital authorities of Raj Meidicity said that condition of Ramananda was serious and need immediate treatment and asked them to deposit Rs. 17,000/-. One friend of the girl, who help them bringing to the hospital deposited the money as Ramananda’s mother and other relatives were in no position to give the money.
Ramananda’s mother Sanatombi further said to this reporter that none of the relative including herself were not allowed to see their son.
The following day, i.e., May 20, Sanatombi left for Kwairamband Keithel to collect some money from colleagues as she though that she might need more money for her son’s treatment by leaving her elder son Shantikumar.
However, at around 11.20 am of May 20, hospital authority informed family members that Ramananda expired.
At first they didn’t suspect any foul play and were simply considering the death of her son could have been due to the poisoning. However, when she saw her son handed over to her by wrapping with band aids all over the body, her elder son and other family members smelt some fishy going around.
“We took out the band aids just to see my son’s face but I could not believed that there were mark at the right side of his head and some sharp object had struck hard near the private part”, Sanatombi narrated.
As the matter is a police case the police took some signature and deposited at RIMS morgue and the post mortem was conducted on may 21.
“We believe that the police will investigate into how my son was death and as we suspect our son to have been murdered, we waited for the police to find the truth.”, Sanahanbi further said.
“Shardha of my son is over and nothing has been done, I have no choice but to plead for justice for my son to the people of the state”, Sanatombi said.
Another lady who accompanied her said that if we formed a JAC and launched agitation the government could have done something.
“But as now believed in police and as we are hopeful that they will find out the truth to punish those involved in the murderers we waited, however, as the police is not taking up anything to find the truth, we are left with no choice but to put up this matter to the public sphere, so that justice is delivered to our departed son”, said Sanatombi, mother of the deceased youth.
