JAC demands re-post mortem of Sunibala
IMPHAL | Oct 11 : ‘JAC against brutal killing of Sunibala alias Lily Devi’ demanded re-post mortem as result of the post mortem is not satisfactory, said co-convenor of the JAC, Ahongshangbam Ajit during a press conference held today at Manipur Press Club, Majorkhul.
He said Sorenshangbam (O) Sunibala alias Lily, 43, wife of (Late) S. Shyamlal of Keishamthong Elangbam Leikai Leirak Achouba was found hanged with a scarf at her veranda, by her third daughter at about 2:30 am of October 6.
It is said that the deceased is survived by four daughters out of which the two elder siblings had already been married and she was living with the two younger daughters. After the incident, concerned police station took a case and the body was brought to RIMS morgue for post-mortem.
Ajit further said that after the procedure of the post mortem was completed, the result came out on October 8. In the report, it is mentioned that the deceased had scar marks on her face, neck, and some sign of internal injury but the cause of dead was declared as suicide, he added.
He further said that there were unusual marks on her body and questioned how the authority could declare the cause of dead as suicide.
He alleged that no person from the parental side of the deceased was included during post mortem but police took a signature from one person and he was sent back from the RIMS morgue gate. There are suspicions that the law enforcing agencies and the medical staffs are corrupted, he added.
Ajit further said that during spot investigation by police, she was found hanged from a low roof nearly six and a half feet high from the ground. The stool she might have used was also found erect, he claimed.
In the post mortem report, it is clearly mentioned that she had scar marks on her body and without investigating how the authority declared the cause of dead as suicide, he stated.
He said after her death, a joint action committee was formed on October 7 and submitted a memorandum to the chief minister. In the memorandum, it is mentioned that authority concerned must conduct proper investigation to bring out the culprit involved in the incident by October 10. If government fail to book the culprit within the set deadline, intense agitation will be followed up. Out of her four daughters, the youngest is a mentally challenged and government should take necessary arrangement for the youngest daughter.
“As the family of the deceased do not have financial support and power, do they have to spend the remaining part of their life in agony without justice?” said Ajit.
Government and the authority concerned must investigate the incident thoroughly and book the culprit as the death seems to be a premeditated murder, he further said adding as government has failed to bring out a solution within the deadline, JAC will initiate intensified agitation from tomorrow, he said.
