IMPHAL, Aug 11: The Manipur Hill Journalists Union, MHJU is alarmed and expresses its concern and condemnation on the life attempt made to key indigenous leaders and reputed journalist A Mobi, editor, Sanaleibak Daily News and the present president of All Manipur Working Journalists Union (AMWJU) on August 11 at about 8:30PM at his residence.
A statement of the MHJU has said that whoever was behind this dastardly act of bombing the residence of the editor is a criminal, inherently inhuman and deserved an equivocal condemnation from all sections of the society. We stand by the victims in over the unjustified and utterly inhuman tragedy he had to face.
It continued that with this, we would like to call the attention of the government of Manipur to give immediate attention and action on this matter. Finally, the MHJU calls on the government, any individual(s) or group(s) to ensure the safety and security of the Journalists and their families and take concrete measures to prevent further attacks and intimidation to the journalists in particular and every citizen in general.
