IMPHAL | Feb 16
The BJP state unit while hailing the fresh opening of Rabina-Sanjit case by the CBI expressed hope that justice will be delivered soon.
It also urged the state judiciary to speed up court trials which have been left pending for a long time.
State BJP spokesperson Nongthombam Biren speaking during a press meet held at Nityaipat Chuthek office today said that there are many sensitive court cases which need speedy trial.
Drawing attention on the 1528 cases of fake encounter, N Biren appealed to all concerned police stations to submit FIRs and other related documents before the court in time.
Referring to the statement made by the chief justice HL Datta and justice Amitava Roy that drug dealers have spoiled an entire generation in rural Punjab, N Biren said that Manipur is having a serious issue in the same regard.
He urged the judiciary for stringent punishment for the drug dealers of the state.
He said that it was very unfortunate that the government has abolished Special Investigation Unit (SIU) of Manipur Police.
He alleged that SIU official were transferred and later abolished the SIU just after the SIU cracked a drug hauling case from Imphal airport in 2013.
He also appealed for speedy trial on the death of Sapam Robinhood who died during the agitation in regard with the demand of Inner line permit system.
Wangkhei constituency BJP candidate Yumkham Erabot Singh, who was also present in the press meet, said that the confession from Havildar Herojit for killing Sanjit with order from his higher authority took a different turn in the case. He said the Herojit’s disclosure led to reopen of the case.
Erabot recalling the case of drug haul in 2013, he said that SIU inspector who got hold of the drug consignment at Imphal airport was allegedly telephoned by two persons. He alleged the mobile phone number belongs to Okram Henry and one Tarpon.
He also alleged that the state Chief Minister is involved with the case directly or indirectly.
