Continuing its humanitarian act of lending support and assistance to the affected victims of the prevailing conflict, CCIAN Forum Peace Committee on Sunday extended monetary assistance to one Mangsatabam Sanathoi Meitei, 19 years, son of Raghu from Leimakhong Mapal Mamang Leikai at Nongda in Imphal East district, who was left blind in one eye after he was hit by a bullet in the Khamenlok incident.
Taking part in the visit, Convenor of CCIAN Forum Peace Committee, Angomcha Chingkhei lamented over the prevailing violence which has crossed 110 days and urged the state government to make all out efforts to resolve the conflict to avoid further bloodshed instead of waiting to pay floral tributes to those killed in the conflict.
He also extolled the bravery of those on the frontline, who are risking their lives to protect the territorial integrity of the state from the threats imposed by the armed Kuki militants. He also expressed grief over the sufferings endured by them and appealed to the public to extend possible help to them.
The committee earlier extended financial aid to one Hijam Shanker from Khurai Ningthoubung Leikai who also sustained bullet injuries in the Khamenlok incident, he mentioned. Chingkhei further claimed that no assistance from the government was provided to the affected victims of the conflict despite its assurance and urged the government to look into the matter.
Meanwhile, injured Sanathoi thanked doctors of Raj Medicity who treated him and all those who extended help and support during his treatment. Mention may be made that nine Meitei village volunteers were killed while 10 sustained injuries in an attack by armed Kuki militants at Khamenlok village on the intervening night of June 13 and 14.
Office bearers and members of CCIAN Forum Peace Committee also took part in the visit to Sanathoi’s house.
