JAC warns further agitationsIMPHAL | Aug 21
‘Joint action committee against the mysterious death of Reamei Chungamlu’ has warned of continuing agitations if the State government fail to deliver justice for the deceased.
The committee appealed the state government to take up urgent action for handing over the case to CBI if it is in not capable of delivering justice and truth. The committee further appealed the state government to allow the family of the deceased to take the body.
It may be mentioned that Reamei Chungamlu was found dead under mysterious circumstances on August 17 at Moirang Pangsang Leikai.
A memorandum submitted to the chief minister on August 21, stated that Reamei Chungamlu was found dead with her a half-shawl (stole), which have been cut in half, tied on a curtain pillar while her body was found lying on the floor, between 7 pm to 8 pm.
The memorandum alleged that her husband, Konjenbam Jackson, son of Konjenbam Joykumar Singh of Pansang Leikai Moirang and his family arranged everything to make it appear like she had committed suicide by tying her neck with the said half-shawl (stole) from a mosquito net stand. The stole was found tied from the mosquito stand, which is not strong enough to hold the weight of a human, it said.
The memorandum further alleged that ever since she got married, her husband who is a habitual drinker, very often indulged in domestic violence, physical assault and demanded money from her wife. On august 17, the deceased lost her gold ring and had an argument with her husband, it said. On the same day, her husband went out for a party till 6 in the evening and later quarrelled with the deceased when he reached home, it alleged.
The neighbours heard noise of argument between the couple and later between 7 pm to 8 pm at night, Chungamlu was found dead, the memorandum stated.
The police and Chungamlu’s family instructed Jackson and his family not to touch the body but the family moved it at their own will, it alleged.
It further stated that the police action throughout the process of the case had been biased since no action has been executed by the law enforcing agencies even after five days of the incident.
