IMPHAL, Jan 18: Demanding quick relief for the victims of the Sangakpham bomb blast in August last year, Conflict Widow Forum organized a day-long sit-in-protest at Sangakpham Bazar today.
Speaking to media person, the secretary of the forum, T Ambravati deplored the inability of the state government to provide justice to the victims even after identification and announcement of the NSCN-IM as the perpetrator of the crime. She further demanded trial of the case under a special court so that prompt justice for the victims and stern punishment of those behind the blast becomes a reality. She said the compensation provided by the state government had fallen way short of providing relief to victims and families of those affected by the incident.
She urged upon the political parties to include clauses for protection of civilians in their election manifestos.
