823

IMPHAL, August 7: The JAC formed in connection with the alleged killing of N S Alice staged a sitting protest today at the Tangkhul Baptist Church, Chingmeirong. 

Speaking to the media, JAC spokesperson AC Rising said a formal complaint had been lodged in connection with the Alice’s death with the Heingang Police by her uncle NS Ngareishan. 

However, no FIR was lodged and the complaint was only entered in their log book as GD entry no 25, dated 30-7-2014, he said. 

He alleged Alice death was not suicide but it was plain murder, clearly pointed out by the injury marks on her body. 

Ever since Alice was found dead, neither her husband Pebam Ranjit Singh nor his family have ever visited and inquired about the death, he alleged. 

While lamenting that the incident was reported to the media as suicide, he added that the JAC will not accept such misleading information and will not compromise under any circumstances. 

The JAC further warned the government to take necessary action in time and demanded the police to register the FIR immediately and book the culprits within five days. 

The government should provide ex-gratia to the bereaved family and the culprits should be punished according to the law of the land, the JAC further demanded. 

A memorandum was also submitted to both the Chief Minister, Okram Ibobi and the deputy Chief Minister, Gaikhangam in connection with the demands, he said.
