‘Kishorchandra’s Facebook account hacked’IMPHAL | Dec 6
Family members of ISTV former staff, Kishorchandra Wangkhem claimed that the Facebook account of Kishorchandra was hacked by some unknown individuals.
“In the evening of December 1, the Facebook account of my husband stayed active for around half an hour when he is currently lodged in jail. We feel apprehensive thinking about the intentions behind the hacking of his Facebook account,” said Kishorchandra’s wife W. (O) Ranjita.
She requested his Facebook friends to remain cautious regarding messages sent out from his account since November 27, the day he was detained under National Security Act (NSA).
The wife lauded the Press Council of India, Indian Journalists’ Union, Supreme Court retired justice, Markandey Katju, MLA, Joykishan, civil and students bodies and all the individuals who are supporting him and standing against the slapping of NSA to Kishorchandra.
In a Facebook post of the retired justice of the Supreme Court, Markandey Katju, it stated, “Is there democracy is Manipur? In a democracy people have the right to criticise the government. It is a part of the freedom of speech guaranteed by Article 19(1)(a) of the Indian Constitution.”
“But evidently that provision does not exist in Manipur. I suggest a habeas corpus be filed immediately against the detention of Kishorchandra under NSA,” it said.
The district magistrate notification given to Kishorchandra mentioned that, “You further claimed in your post that Rani Jhansi’s birth anniversary celebration in Manipur is total nuisance and that the very act of the chief minister of Manipur celebrating such occasion in the state is an insult to the freedom struggle of Manipur, which means you spoke and acted in support of militant and terrorist organisations presently operating in Manipur thereby showing your seditious attitude and leaning towards unlawful organisations.”
Kishorchandra was arrested on November 20 for posting a video recording abusing the stance of chief minister, N. Biren regarding a function organised in regard to Rani of Jhansi being linked with the freedom movement of Manipur.
But the chief judicial magistrate released him on November 26 stating that, “The words, terms and gesture used by the accused in the video cannot be termed as seditious. It is mere expression of opinion against the public conduct of public figure in a street language.”
The next day he was picked up from his residence by police and detained him under NSA.
