Dharamvir’s counsel seeks time for submitting additional affidavit
IMPHAL | Sept 13 : The High Court of Manipur has postponed the hearing of the case of alleged arrest of lieutenant colonel, Dharamvir Singh on September 25, after the petitioner counsel sought time for submitting additional affidavit.
As directed by the division bench of the high court comprising of chief justice, Ramalingam Sudhakar and justice, Kh. Nobin, the army authority has already submitted its counter affidavit before the court.
On July 5, Dharamvir’s wife, Ranju Singh filed a habeas corpus petition before the high court stating that Dharamvir was arrested by armed jawans led by lieutenant colonel, Nanda and major, Rathod on early morning of July 1 from their quarter without any arrest warrant, after which whereabouts of her husband was not known.

Biren on August 5 by the JAC against the cold blooded murder of Gypsy and four others, and different CVOs of the state have demanded justice for the five deceased.
