Imphal, Nov 29,

Youth’s Action Committee for the Protection of Indigenous Peoples appreciated the Government of Manipur for giving assurance to assist the People Action Committee and family members of deceased Pravish Chanam while meeting with the CM of Manipur at CM Office the day before the Sangai festival began. During the meeting the PAC  urged the CM to put up the matter to the notice of the central government and to handover the case to CBI at the earliest.

The forum expressed dissatisfaction as it is yet to be investigated.

“We have also come to know that CM has given assurance to assist the PAC in legal forum and others if the CBI fails to handle the case within 20 days of ultimatum given by PAC to the Government of Manipur. Moreover, the state cabinet meeting had already passed the resolution to recommend CBI Investigation for the death of Pravish Chanam on the 6th November,2018. But it is quite confuse that whether the CBI may handle the case or not as CBI, Lucknow branch had already informed that the case is not suitable to be handle by CBI since the UP Police is well equipped and professional,” a statement said.

It said that the  YACPIP will further support the steps taken up by the PAC to get justice for Pravish Chanam and appealed the people of Manipur to support the PAC in fighting against the racial discrimination committed towards the indigenous peoples at Mainland India.
