IMPHAL, September 6: Deceased Hiyanglam MLA Maibam Junjo’s son M Chandrabir has slapped Manipur Pradesh Trinamool Congress president Th Shyamkumar with legal notice seeking monetary compensation over his father’s death.
According to a source, Chandrabir has sought Rs 2 crore as compensation for the untimely demise of his father (L) Maibam Kunjo Singh, charging the MPTC president of committing “tortious act” against the deceased MLA.
In his notice, Chandrabir has said his father (L) M Kunjo Singh was an active member and sincere MLA of the AITC with undying loyalty, allegiance towards the party.
Sources said the notice was sent by advocate M Manglem Singh yesterday.
The notice mentioned that Chandrabir was unhappy that his father was “slapped with a suspension order from the Manipur Pradesh Trinamool Congress Committee of which MLA Shyamkumar is the president,” informed sources.
“(L) Kunjo Singh never enrolled as a member of the Manipur Pradesh Trinamool Congress Committee, a party flouted by you.

The notice further charged MLA Shyamkumar as the president of Manipur Pradesh Trinamool Congress Committee of passing wrongful suspension order, disqualification petition and revocation order against (L) Kunjo “which tarnished and defamed the good name and reputation of a peoples’ representative and also causing mental agony.”
Chandrabir has sought Rs 2 crore in total as compensation to (L) Kunjo Singh’s legal heirs
