IMPHAL: Ningthoukhong Keithel was the spot of a demonstration on Sunday demanding the arrest and punishment of the perpetrators involved in the killing of 22 year old Laishram Angamba, son of Biren, at a spot near Ningthoukhong Low Canal some days back.
The protest was staged by three prominent organizations of Bishnupur district namely Meira Paibi Apunba Lup (MPAL), Nambol Apunba Meira Paibi Lup (NAMPAL) and United Women Development Organization.
The authorities were asked to investigate and find out the truth behind the killing at the earliest as well as to work sincerely armed with stringent measures for checking the availability of drugs and intoxicants and protect the youths from the cruel grip of substance abuse. The organizations have warned that if the administration fails to divulge the facts behind the killing then the people will go to the extreme of even discarding the Covid-19 SoP and take up more intense agitations. In such an eventuality the government should be responsible for all the consequences, the protestors said.
