ATSUM Fin Secy arrested for objectionable social media post

TMB Report

Imphal: Police have arrested Finance Secretary of All Tribal Students Union Manipur (ATSUM) Kakai Singsit on the charge of his objectionable facebook post.

He was reportedly arrested by a team of Imphal west police from his Motbung residence on Friday late night at about 11.15 PM based on a complaint filed by BJYM Manipur President M Barish Sharma.

He has been slapped with u/s 153-A/505 (b)(2)/506/34 IPC (criminal intimidation, promoting enmity between different groups on grounds, statements conducting to public mischief with intent to cause or which is likely to cause fear or alarm to the public, statements creating or promoting enmity, hatred or ill will between classes with common intention).

According to the complaint of M Barish Sharma, on May 16, one Kakai Singsit who is said to be the Finance Secretary, ATSUM, uploaded derogatory statements in his Facebook wall, thereby creating or promoting enmity, hatred or ill-will between classes or communities.

The statement or remark with threats in the said post, reads “Barish Sharma, you dog of Biren let’s meet and settle our account. Come to Koubru with your Haomee Federation and Kangleipak Kanba Lup, we’ll wring your necks, For Kakai is there”.

The statement in the post of Kakai Singsit is meant to create enmity, ill-will and hatred between the Meitei community and Kuki tribes/ community. Kakai Singsit stated that he is the Finance Secretary, ATSUM which is an Organisation meant for all tribes, but actually controlled by Kuki individuals or members. He, being the representative of the organisation, threatened the BYJM, Manipur Pradesh, members of different communities and tribes. He also threatened the Haomee Federation, an organisation of Meitei community and tribes particularly Naga tribes. He further threatened Kangleipak Kanba Lup, an organisation of Meitei community, it said.

Threatening BJYM president and the members of the organisation by Kaka Singsit is actually threatening the class or community of Meitei Community. He also clearly stated in the post that they will wring the necks of Meiteis who come at Koubru. Accordingly, Kakai Singsit and his associates have threatened the Meitei community. It alleged that the post of Kaka Singsit have caused great enmity, hatred and ill-will between the Meitei community and Kuki community, which can also be seen in the comments to the post.

The post also harms his reputation by making false statement. Further, the post also amounts to the offence of criminal intimidation, it added.
