Alleged murderer re-arrested from jail
IMPHAL | Aug 8 : A man who was arrested recently and had been serving judicial custody remand for murdering his uncle on July 27, was formally arrested again today from Sajiwa central jail for another murder case of one of his uncle that had taken place in June, 2015.
The accused identified as Khulem Jiten Singh of Naoremthong Khullem Leikai was today produced before the sessions judge, Imphal West and the court has remanded him to judicial custody till August 24.
Police made formal arrest of Jiten from Sajiwa jail in accordance to the warrant of arrest issued earlier by the court in connection of murdering his uncle, Khulem Krishnamohan Singh and injuring one Khulem Priyobarta Singh at the evening of June 30, 2015 using his licence revolver.
Jiten reportedly surrendered himself to Imphal police station on July 6, 2015, where the court continues to detain him under judicial custody till he was granted bail by the court last year.
In the meantime, following the submission of charge sheet against Jiten by the investigation officer of the case before the said court on February 1, 2016, the court has framed charge against Jiten and started trial of the case by recording the statements of 20 prosecution witnesses and five defence witnesses.
During the recording of defence witnesses, accused Jiten had failed to appear before the court and as a result, court issued arrest warrant against Jiten.
Today, the court recorded statements of two defence witnesses, and later the court fixed the final argument hearing of the case on August 24 which will be followed by conviction hearing.
Moreover, the court has also cancelled the previous bail granted against Jiten along with all the bail bond and surety.
In the meantime, infuriated family members of victims, who were murdered by Jiten along with the women folks of Naoremthong Khullen Leikai, stormed outside the court room during his appearance.
They shouted slogans like ‘punish the murderer’, ‘hang the murderer’, ‘deliver justice to victims’ and others and also tried to attack him and hurled water bottles and slippers toward the accused.
However, the police took the alleged accused inside a bullet proof vehicle and sped away from the court complex.
