Two members of the Thawai Meerel group – a women Civil Society group, who had begun a fast-unto-death protest on Wednesday were picked up by a team of state police on Thursday.
The two members of the Thawai Meerel group – Nepram Ganga Leima and Chongtham Pramo Devi began a fast-unto-death protest at the waiting shed of Torban Kshetri Leikai in Imphal East under Singjamei Police Station.
The two members began the fast-unto-death protest on Wednesday after the government gave no response to the relay hunger strike for 9 days.
A team of state police picked up Nepram Ganga Leima and Chongtham Pramo Devi at around 7.30 am on Thursday from the shed at Singjamei Torban Kshetri Leikai.
After both were picked up, another two members of the Thawai Meerel group continued the fast-unto-death protest from 9.30 am today.
A 57-year-old B Malaya and 53-year-old S Thoibi, both from Singjamei Torban Kshtri Leikai, said that until peace is restored in the state by removing the Assam Rifles and by driving out all armed narco terrorists from the soil of the state, they will continue with their hunger strike.
