The JAC later submitted a memorandum to the Chief Minister of Manipur demanding to book the culprits involved in the alleged murder within three days and asserted that the body of the decease will not be claimed until that.
In the memorandum the JAC also demanded from the government to provide compensation to the kins of the victim and at the same time warned that they would resort to taking up certain forms of agitation if the government fails to fulfill its charter of demands.
