Imphal, May 22: Unknown miscreants torched the “Salpha Pumbuk”, the shed where the dummy coffins of the nine ‘tribal martyrs’ was being kept, at Hiangtam Lamka in Churachanpur in the wee hours today.
The arson was reportedly committed by the miscreants at around 2 am this morning. Nearby residents called out for help after they noticed the fire at Salpha Pumbuk. Subsequently the fire was put under control.
This is the second attempt to torch down the symbolic coffins following the agreement reached between the JAC-ATTB and the state government on May 10 to bury the bodies on May 25. The bodies are presently being kept at the morgue of the district hospital since September 2015.
It may be recalled that unknown miscreants set the same place on fire a few days back.
The shed was constructed by the JAC-ATTB.
Some sections of tribal communities in Churachandpur still strongly oppose the May 10 agreement between the state government and the JAC. Women bodies of Churachandpur and Manipur Tribal Forum Delhi had expressed strong reservation over the May 10 agreement.
Two earlier attempts to vandalise the Salpha Pombuk could not be ascertained yet.
