IMPHAL, Sept 15: The Paorei Shanao Long has strongly condemned the inhuman act of rape and murder of Vasmi Khaleng (16 year) daughter of Ngathingkhui Khaleng of Paorei village, Ukhrul District. On September 10, 2011, at around 9:30am, Khaleng, had gone out from her hostel located near Tangkhul Baptist Church Imphal but failed to come back for the hostel worship service at 2:00pm where the residents were expected to attend and she did not return even at night. It was through the local TV channel that her friends came to know that she has been murdered. Her death body was found on September 11, 2011 at Thangmeiband Cheiraoching, Imphal. She had been raped and murdered.
The Paorei Shanao Long appeal to the concerned authority for urgent and befitting action against the culprit and anyone involved in the crime for the end of justice and also to prevent such heinous crime in the future.
The Paorei Shanao Long also appeals to the media to refrain from publishing unwanted items and concocted stories. It is sad that Miss Vasmi Khaleng is death and we cannot bring her back to life to hear her side of the story.
Vasmi Khaleng sudden demise is a great lost to the Paorei community and we pray that God will shower blessing upon the bereaved family. The Paorei Shanao Long would like to express profound gratitude to the Tangkhul Frontal Organisations and every individual who have shown and expressed their concerned and solidarity through their participation in the protest rally held on 14th September 2011 at Ukhrul organized under the aegis of Tangkhul Frontal Organisations.
