IMPHAL, Sep 4: The Joint Action Committee formed against the disappearance of Md Rohit alias Lemba of Golapati Maning Leikai has called a 24-hours general strike effective from midnight of September 5.
This was declared by JAC secretary Md Manawar Ali during a press conference held today at the Manipur Press Club.
Speaking to the media at the press meet, Manawar Ali said the authorities of the Hundred Flower School should bear all the responsibility for the disappearance of Md Rohit, a Class VIII student of the school who went missing since August 19.
