KANGPOKPI, August 30: The All Tribal Students’ Union Manipur (ATSUM) Emboi Serto group has lodged strong condemnation over the violent incident during the mass district level rally organised under the banner of United Naga Council (UNC) at Ukhrul today.
President of the student body, Emboi Serto stated that security personnel in the State have never failed to harm the innocent civilians when ever confrontation crop up while completely forgetting that they (security personnel) are protectors and not slayers.
A visibly upset Emboi asserted that it has become harder and harder for the innocent civilian in the State particularly for the tribal people to live.
Emboi further questioned “Why there is a massive difference between mass rallies taken out at Ukhrul and Imphal while the 144 CrPC has been clamped in both districts?”
While ATSUM condoles for the bereaved family of the deceased and injured persons, we will not remain silent if the guilty personnel are not punished according to the law of the land, Emboi added.
