Orgns dismiss Sonia’s suicide report

IMPHAL | Mar 19

A rally cum public meeting was held today at Thamnaopokpi, Bishnupur protesting against alleged murder of Ningthoujam Ongbi Sonia Devi, 26. The meeting which was held in Thamnaopokpi market started its rally from the same place culminating at Moirang Lamkhai.

It may be recalled, Ningthoujam Sonia Devi died on February 26. According to her family, she had come to her maternal home 10 times this year and used to complain that she did not want to go back to her husband’s house anymore.

The public meeting was jointly organised by Thamnaopokpi Youth Workers Club (T.Y.W.C), Nupi Yaipha Lup ( Meira Paibi), and 17 self help groups of Bishnupur.

Deliberating in the meeting, various representatives of the organisations alleged that Sonia’s husband, who is a constable with the CID of Manipur police, has been ill-treating her for many days. They also claimed the post mortem report, which states Sonia’s death as suicide as false. There are high possibilities of Sonia’s husband manipulating the report taking undue advantage of his profession, they said.

The meeting demanded suspension of husband Kesochandra from his job give befitting punishment for the alleged crime he committed. It also urged that Sonia’s son, N Kipson, 4, be handed over his custodial rights to the maternal family of the former.

It also resolved that more intense agitations like bandh and blockade would be in the offing if the authority concerned does not bring out the names of the accused within 3 days time.

These organisations also pointed out that the accused is closely related with the newly elected MLA of Thangmeiband constituency, Kh Joykishan Singh.

SK Mangang, JAC Tiddim Road, chief convenor, Kh Tombi Devi, secretary, Nupi Yaipha Lup Thamnaopokpi, Kh Inaobi, secretary, Sustainable Development Centre Thamnaopokpi and W Lata Devi, advocate spoke during the meeting.
