IMPHAL, July 27: Stating that the act of delaying in initiating judicial inquiry into the death of Sapam Robinhood will only invite wrath of the public, the Joint Committee on Inner Line Permit System Students`™ Wing has set July 30 as the last deadline for unconditional release of the seven students`™ leaders who were arrested by police for taking part in ILPS agitation.
A statement signed by its media co-ordinator Bijandro Yumkhaibam, declared that it fully endorsed the proposed 38-hour general strike called by the Robinhood JAC.
The students`™ leaders were arrested from different places by police during the ongoing ILPS movement, it said.
Despite asking the government repeatedly to release all of them unconditionally, the same has not been done till date, which is against the student community, it said.
Some MLAs and ministers are trying to fool public by saying that no one has been arrested by police in connection with the ILPS agitation, which will not succeed at all, it added.
The Students`™ Wing, in the statement also expressed gratitude to the auto-rickshaw`™s associations for staging protest demonstrations today by staying off the road in solidarity to the collective demand for enactment of a new bill to monitor the rampant influx of outsiders into the State.
