The indefinite strike which was scheduled to begin from Friday midnight has been suspended till February 19 by the JAC in the mysterious death of Ak Nonganba alias Aging, following a positive response from the state government, the JAC said.
A one-day sit-in-protest was staged at the community hall of Kwakeithel Konjeng Awang Leikai, Imphal West on Friday.
Speaking on the sidelines of the protest, JAC convenor Th Ashalata said that the indefinite strike was suspended after the state government gave a positive response. The JAC also considered the G20 events on February 17-18, she said.
If the government failed to take necessary action regarding the demand of the JAC to nab Stephen, another suspect, then the indefinite strike will be launched across the state from next Monday, she said.
She questioned why police are not putting Sonia and Stephen into custody though they are also reported to be accused persons besides Moses.
Ashalata further appealed to the state government to take Sonia and Stephen into police custody so that the investigation into the case can be solved at the earliest.
