IMPHAL, April 11: The Joint Action Committee (JAC) constituted against the brutal killing of Md Farooque Khan, Md Saddam and causing serious injuries to Md Zamir and five other Muslims from Iram Siphai, has decided to relax its call of indefinite general strike in Mayai Lambi and Thoubal district till April 13.
The decision was taken following assurance made by Chief Minister O Ibobi during a meeting held in the presence of Additional SP Thoubal regarding the demand put up by the JAC.
According to a press release of the JAC, the agitation will continue from April 14 if the assurance is not put into action before April 13. The JAC resolved to urge the concerned authorities to deploy Central para military forces at Mayang Imphal and its surrounding areas as it has lost faith in the State forces following the incidents.
It further resolved to hold a joint meeting on April 13 at Lilong Turel Ahanbi Kaleikhong public meeting in connection with the incidents.
