The protesters also urged the people of the state to support the movement until the culprits are brought to justice.

In the event, the sister-in-law of Md Rashid, Wahida said that Md Rashid was staying with one Manglembi from Nongpok Keithelmanbi for 10 years. He returned to Mayai Keithel following his marriage, she added.

“Manglembi asked Rashid to stay with her as she was getting old and weak, so Rashid went to live with her on Tuesday,” she said. After that day, Rashid could not be contacted and he went missing, she continued.

Then on Thursday, a phone call came which informed that Rashid was found dead at Yambem PHC, Wahida maintained. She drew the attention of the state government to punish the culprits and bring them to justice.
