The alleged silence maintained by the Manipur government over the most sensational death of Pravish Chanam has been condemned by the People Action Committee (PAC) and student organisations threatening to take up a series of agitations over the case.
On Tuesday, PAC in collaboration with different student bodies organised a press meet at Uripok Achom Leikai wherein the Biren Singh government was disapproved, accusing it of keeping a tight-lipped over the youth’s killing case.
“We demand the Manipur government to reveal its clear-cut stance on the case within five days,” said PAC convenor A Pholen.
He condemned the state government for allegedly failing to take any step to facilitate investigation into the circumstances leading to the death of Pravish Chanam.
“Sending merely a state police officer to Uttar Pradesh and keeping mum for so long will not help anything,” Angamba said.
He reiterated the demand of a CBI probe into the case and expressed resentment against the state government for allegedly unwilling to initiate any action in this regard till today.
Besides the case of Chanam Pravish, cases of Taorem Bitoo, 32, resident of Khoyathong Polem Leikai in Imphal West, who went missing from Delhi’s Masti Park since September 13, and 25-year-old Jacinta from Manipur who was killed while fighting with bag snatchers in Delhi in August and Siddarth Moirangthem son of former minister’s death in August in Delhi, are yet to be solved.
