The Kuki Students Organisation (KSO), Bungpi block on Friday urged the authorities concerned to arrest the alleged perpetrators of the killing of one Thotreichan Kashung and Naosomi Lungleng of Sinakeithei village in Ukhrul district of Manipur.

Condemning the murder of 31-year-old Thotreichan Kashung, son of Mothang Kashung and 29-year-old Naosomi Lungleng, son of late Lightson Lungleng, KSO demanded that the investigating team should leave no stone unturned to arrest those involved in the killing.

Any unnatural or suspicious deaths of a particular community member should not be unreasonably interpreted as perpetrated by somebody from the other communities, KSO stated in a release.

KSO stated that different communities living side-by-side should together seek a CBI probe if the need arises for such an inquiry rather than distrusting each other.

It appealed all to refrain from giving a communal tone to the incident but make concerted efforts instead and give room for the law to take its own course.

The release stated that the decomposed bodies of the victims were found on August 8 at Ihang river bank. After the superintendent of Police Ukhrul and additional superintendent of Police Kangpokpi were pressed into action to nab the killers, the adjoining Kuki villagers have also rendered their full cooperation in the investigation, the release stated.
