  1. Well said Bembem all these people should not only be hanged but they should be shot in their heads too.F****n miscreants don’t understand that they are only bringing agony among us.
    How can they do this to a person who is staying far away from his family and trying to survive and full filling his family hunger.
    If the same thing happens to them or something other then they bring discrimination and racist issue.
    What is this ???

  2. Are these people human or animals? How can they kill people just like that? These fellows should be hung to death in their birthday suits, if possible. Are all Manipuris like this? And, they cry of being discriminated and what not. Surprising. Disgusting people as of now though!

    • Bembem, you are mistaken, there are some peoples who are self centric and they are the main cause of such issues. These peoples try to destroy the image of all the well mannered and descent peoples in the state. Those who are staying outside the state sometimes face problems due to such incidents inside the state. We also share the condolences of the tragic demise, n pliz mind that not all Manipuris are the same.
