Nupi Singgee Apunba Yaipha Lup (NSAYL) staged a sit in protest at Naoremthong Salam Leikai against the release of Khulem Jiten on bail by CJM Imphal West.
Speaking to media persons Salam Mema- Secretary of NSAYL said that Khulem Jiten has been accused of killing K Krishnamohan (50), his uncle with an illegal handgun and injuring K Priyobrata in the incident of 31 June 2015. She further added that the accused has been released last week by CJM Imphal West Nautineshwori and District session judge Manoj without providing a satisfactory reason.
K (0) Bijayani- wife of deceased Krishnamohan said that they condemn the release of K. Jiten on bail, alleging that the state and the court has not taken the issue seriously. She further added that the development is akin to inviting for more crime to the society by the rich and influential yet antisocial individuals while expressing dissatisfaction on the decision of the judges to grant bail to the murderer, hinting at the suspicion of being compromised with bribes. The next hearing on the case is scheduled on January 16.
