Police take up suo-moto case against ML chief

Police take up a suo-moto case against Meitei Leepun chief Pramot Singh over an incident of firing a gun in public at Telipati, Imphal East district, and an FIR was filed against Pramot.
According to the police, Porompat Police has registered a case against Meitei Leepun chief Pramot Singh under FIR no. 1408(12)2023 under sections 506/427/34 IPC and 25(1-B) Arms Act.
In connection with the incident in which Pramot Singh is allegedly seen brandishing a gun in a video clip, Meitei Leepun has stated that they have to intervene following the failure of the state authority to take action for the protection of two disputed temples in Telipati area.
“At Khurai Telipati, there are two Mandirs-one belongs to the Telis, and the other belongs to the Meiteis, coexisting for ages. Over time, a land dispute emerged, currently pending in Court.
Meanwhile, illegal encroachers around these two Mandirs were dumping garbage, using the area as a parking lot, and spoiling the sanctity of the Mandirs”, the statement said adding that the Meitei Leepun regularly cleans the area and has been warning all not to disturb the sanctity of the Mandirs.
“The Meitei Leepun, as a responsible body, always safeguards the important sites, as confirmed by both Pooja Committees. During a routine visit, we observed a Meitei, a Muslim, and a Bihari dumping rubbish [waste/garbage], building illegally, and using it as a parking lot. Despite complaints to authorities like the police, DC, and local MLA, no action had been taken, causing distress.
The Meitei Leepun intervened to educate people,” said Meitei Leepun.
