Wife of deceased appeals against violent protest in CCpur
LAMKA, December 10: Family members of the church elder Dover Hmar who was killed in an accident yesterday have claimed his body this evening, even as his wife appealed to all supporters against the use of violence to protest his death. However, the exact condition for the acceptance of the body is not known.
It may be reminded that the Hmar Youth Association had called a bandh against the incident since yesterday. The bandh has been concluded this evening, after the family accepted the body.
Dover Hmar’s wife had appealed today to all supporters of her husband that it would have been against her deceased husband’s wished to see violence as it is the season of X-Mass and New Year.
Meanwhile, due to the bandh called by the HYA, many ignorant drivers who were unaware of the bandh had faced the fury of the bandh volunteers today.
At least four diesel autos were waylaid by the bandh supporters and damaged in the periphery of Lamka town. One of the autos was attacked in front of a police station at H Ramthar whereas another one was attacked in front of Light-house post of the BSF.
A driver from Sagang area of CCpur said he was unaware of the bandh and had come to do some transaction at the SBI Churachandpur branch but was caught on the way and his auto damaged by bandh volunteers.
He said he was however lucky to flee from the bandh supporters and rescued by CCpur OC MA Salam.
Meanwhile, a police personnel on condition of anonymity said due to the Chief Minister’s visit at Kangvai, there was shortage of police personnel in the area as several personnel had been placed along the Chief Minister’s route.
It may be mentioned that another incident which had turned violent in the district during the past couple of days was the alleged murder of a Ngaineihlam Haokip, 35 by her husband Khumei who had later surrendered before the police. The body of the woman was claimed only yesterday.
