Imphal, July 10,
A reliable source said that police are on the manhunt for members and leaders of the students’ body Socialist Students’ Union of Manipur, (SSUM) days after the students’ body called a state-wide general Strike on July 13 demanding publication in public the content of the ILPS Bill which is to be tabled in the upcoming state assembly session, settlement of border dispute, justice for weightlifter Khumukcham Sanjita and publication of the details of postings and transfers of the govt. teachers through official website.
Talking over Phone SSUM President Sanahal said that police are searching for him everywhere and he is on the run. He said there will be no calling off of the state wide general strike called on July 13 even though they were being hunted by the state police. He said instead of hunting for the students, it would have been more appreciated if the police force fought the Burmese Army for the people of the state.
