Girl found dead in suspicious manner

THOUBAL | Mar 20

The lifeless body of an 18 year-old girl was found in a suspicious manner today morning at around 9:30, in a public pond at Irengband Hawairou Laibung Leikai, under Kakching police station.

The body was found with a baby too.

The deceased has been identified as Laitonjam Sanalembi (Ichan), daughter of L Ruhidas (Inaobi) of Hawai Rou Laibung Leikai, who was reading at Kakching Higher secondary school, standard XII. She was in preparation for appearing the council examination which begun today.

According to the mother, Chaoba, Sanalembi was at home yesterday till 4 pm. She went out to find a missing domestic duck and on her return Sanalembi had already left the house, said Chaoba.

Chaoba continued that she is aware of her daughter having an affair with a man from Thoubal area. “When Sanalembi did not return late in the evening, I called up a number to which she had sent text message just before she went missing from her mobile phone”, she said.

Further she said the call was answered by a man, who identified himself to be a local of Kwa-siphai area. She told him over the phone to give clear information of whether they (Sanalembi and him) have eloped or not.

The man replied that Sanalembi, two days ago, had expressed her wish to commit suicide out of misery, Chaoba said, adding, he immediately hung up the phone before saying that the family should ask her friends.

“We thought that it was a case of elopement and waited for the man’s family to turn up in the morning. At around 9:30, Sanalembi’s father found a slipper lying suspiciously near the locality pond”, she said.

Ruhidas immediately started looking for her daughter inside the pond and found her body, she added. The locals maintained that the body of the girl was found with a baby.

The bodies have been deposited at JNIMS morgue after inquest by officials of Manipur Forensic Science.

Meanwhile a JAC has been formed in connection with the incident, following a protest meeting held at Irengband Hawai Rou Laibung Leikai. The meeting resolved to demand magisterial enquiry into the incident and that the state government should produce those involved in the crime within 24 hours to the public.

The JAC decided not to accept the body until the culprit is found by the authority concerned.
