Accused of the robbery case at Wangjing Bazaar of November 4 has alleged foul play by some vested interested persons to put them behind bars.
While narrating the story of the unfortunate incident N Gambir told media persons here at Manipur Press Club that he along with his Son were called by Thoubal Police through telephone on 6 November, after two days they were charged and threatened on robbery charge of huge cash amount by his neighbour Khumanthem Noren (49). On the call they were asked to visit IO of the case at Police Station by 4.30 pm. According to the direction Gambir along with his son reached the PS by 4.15 pm where they waited till 7.30 pm to meet the IO as he was out for some other work, narrated Gambir.
They were directed to empty their hands as signed to be ready to confine under police custody, said the teary Father.
He further said, on the other day (7 November), they were produced to CJM Thoubal where the IO stated they were arrested from nearby Police Station before the Judge. He claimed that Noren by misusing the political linkages as being brother-in-law of MLA of Wangjing/Tentha Brojen, put them into jail, however, without a single evidence of the charge against them.
Son-father duo Ngangom James and Ngangom Gambir asked the reason why they were arrested and put to jail, exploiting James educational carrier who missed his 5th BA Semester exam conducted by Manipur University while he was in jail.
