A public convention at Heinoubok Community Hall, Imphal on Sunday unanimously decided to initiate intense agitations from November 6 if authorities fail to produce the bodies of Linthoinganbi and Hemanjit on or before November 3.
The convention was organised by the families of the two students and the JAC formed in connection with their murders.
During the convention, the public resolved to demand authorities to produce the bodies on or before November 3. It also resolved that another public convention would be organised on November 5 and agitations would commence from November 6 if authorities fail to stick to the deadline.
Moderator of convention and social cultural activist Ningthouja Lancha stressed the need to deliberate thoroughly on the case of the two students.
"Previously, other cases close to public sentiment were also handed over to the CBI but no progress has been reported till now. We do not want the same fate regarding this case and so, we need to map out a strategy to ensure that doesn't happen," he said.
He stated that the whereabouts of the two students on that fateful day was an open secret that everyone knew but still the government had not said a word on it.
"Their phone locations were tracked and the authorities had apprehended the mastermind of the whole case but still no word on the bodies, why?" he asked.
He further expressed disappointment over the government's tactic to resolve the crisis and stated that villagers from 46 villages were currently displaced at the moment.
"But the authorities are trying to settle the issue by meeting the villagers separately. That will not bring any lasting result to the crisis," he said.
Around 500 people from over 49 valley villages were present at the convention.
