Delhi Association of Manipuri Muslim Students (DAMMS), a student body of Manipuri Muslims in Delhi and NCR regions strongly condemn the brutal killing of Loitam Richard, aged 19, son of L Rajesh of Uripok Yambem Leikai, Imphal Manipur studying Architecture Engineering at Acharya NRV School of Architecture,Bangalore, on April 18, 2012 and also extend our deepest condolence to the family of deceased.
The sudden demise of a student who would be the future support of a family and entire society is indeed a disaster to the family members. He was brutally beaten to death on the night of 18th April 2012 in his hostel and he was mercilessly murdered by his seniors. What saddens us most is that a very responsible warden was busy watching IPL and the management has tried to wash their hands off and hush up the case. Such unfortunate event of the incident reminds us the degrading moral, lack of brotherhood, and human values among the students. We strongly condemn the flaws in conduct of the authorities, and the security lapses. For obvious reasons we have faith in the authority that whosoever the culprit is, will be booked at the earliest.
It is time for all the student communities in particular and public in general to unite together and demand justice for the deceased soul. Also DAMMS appeal every student community to maintain peace & harmony and not to repeat such inhuman act in the future.
