Imphal, Aug 19: The gambit on the recent development encircling over Irom Chanu Sharmila seems to be emerging out to the public sphere as Sharmila’s 84 years old mother Irom Ongbi Sakhi Devi was denied from meeting her daughter by security force JNIMS where the iron lady is presently staying after she end her 16 years long fast-unto-death protest demanding repeal of AFSPA on August 9.
Irom Singhajit, Sharmila’s elder brother who tried to question the reason behind disallowing their mother from meeting her daughter was also reportedly mishandled by the security force.
Talking to reporters at Manipur Press Club, Irom Singhajit, the man who sacrificed everything for the cause of his sister since she began her protest in November 2000, said that he took his mother to JNIMS at around 11 am today as she was eager to meet her daughter wanted her to come home.
“Much have been told by national media about our family on the decision of my sister, but not everything is true, how could a brother, mother throw out a sister who had dedicated whole her life for the cause of the people”, Singhajit said.
He said that as his mother wanted to meet her daughter which has been kept separated for 16 years, he took her by carrying at his back as she was too weak to walk all alone.
“The security there stopped us saying that we need permission from the Superintendent of JNIMS even after my sister (Sharmila) told him that she was her mother”, Singhajit said.
“ When I went to the Superintendent office to seek permission he was not in the room. Some staffs said he went out on hospital inspection duty”, he added.
Singhajit then said that he went again requesting the security to allow his mother to meet her daughter, but to the surprise the security personnel nearly assaulted him using abusive words.
Irom Chanu Sharmila was released on bail on August 9 after she announced that she would end her fast protest. Sharmila however said that she will continue her fight against AFSPA by contesting election.
Human Rights activist, Babloo Loitongbam who also accompanied Singhajit during the meeting with media persons at Manipur Press club questioned the reason for disallowing a mother from meeting a daughter who is no more in anybody’s custody. He said the security forces were allotted for her protection and they should follow her order. Babloo also asked if the JNIMS Superintendent has any right over Sharmila over her meeting with anybody particularly her mother.
