Imphal, July 30: “He is not human, he deserved the kind of punishment”, said Ranitombi (name changed) talking to this reporter at Wahengleikai Bus Parking in reaction to a news item published at which proscribed group UNLF claimed responsibility for killing of 43 years old Irom Bobo.
The armed group in its press note made available to media houses said that Irom Bobo, son of Kameshore of Tharoijam Maning Leikai , was awarded capital punishment for raping his niece ( a 12 year old minor girl, and daughter of his wife’s sister).
The alleged rapist Irom Bobo was found murdered by armed assailants on the evening of Friday (July 28) at around 7.30 pm at Pukhrambam Leirak, Sogalband Tera in Imphal West.
After a short break, when militancy reached its peaked, armed rebel group barely spare any men or women indulged in inhuman crime. Those are the gone days when inhuman crime like rape of minors is rarely heard due to fear of capital punishment by armed rebels.
Due to reason, not known to the public the rebel groups operating in the region particularly the UNLF, RPF and the PREPAk had stopped interfering such matter. Since then crime against women, rapes of minor girls, murdered of married women are rising.
Much have been discussed and during informal talk with some of the Professors, the rise of such crime is due to the law of the land at which they have room to escape or the punishment barely affect their life. An assistant professor who does not want to disclose his name said that capital punishment is the best form of punishment for rapists. He said so because Indian law takes times to punish culprits and when it comes about raping of minor girl sentiments of the people are often hurt.
“I have no relation, neither did know any person of the UNLF, I also don’t know what actually they are fighting for, but I wish them live long to save our daughters from being victims of rape”, a vendor lady Shantibala (name changed) told this reporter.
As per the statement of UNLF, Bobo raped the daughter of his wife’s sister at his home on the night of July 1, 2013. The statement was signed by Sak-hen, Director, Department of Publicity of the outfit.
He committed the crime in the absence of his wife who had gone to visit her daughter. He took advantage when rest of the children had gone to sleep and raped the girl who was also sleeping in the house, the statement added.
