Further investigation revealed that Bibi was last seen being picked up and going away with accused Md Abdul Kadir around 8 pm on September 19 of the same year.

After a detailed investigation, police filed a charge sheet against Abdul Kadir at CJM Imphal West.

The CJM accepted the charge sheet, stating that the accused could be punished under section 302,393,404 read with 201 of IPC.

The PP further stated that the punishable for murder should be punished with death, or imprisonment for life, and shall be liable to fine and as such, the convict shall be sentenced to a minimum of life imprisonment.

The counsel of the convict prayed for releasing the convict on probation, as the convict is only 35 years old and has a chance of rehabilitation.

It may be mentioned that three other accused mentioned in the charge sheet were removed due to lack of evidence while a juvenile was sent to JJB Imphal West. As the trial was to be conducted u/s 302, 396 and other sections of IPC, the case was referred to the Sessions Court

In February 2016, the then Sessions Judge M Manojkumar framed charges against the accused u/s 396, 302, 392, 404 and 201 of IPC.
