Condemning the repeated blame hurled at the teachers and authorities of RIMS by "Justice for Sanaton Athokpam (JFSA)",  RIMS Students' Union (RIMSSU) on Wednesday urged the JFSA and all concerned to refrain from tarnishing the image of RIMS with immediate effect.

When all community of RIMS has been sharing the grief and cooperating with magisterial enquiry in connection with the death case of Sanaton, the repeated false accusations against the authorities, teachers or students is highly unfortunate, RIMSSU said in a release.

The release stated that JFSA should understand that RIMS is a national-level institute and uncalled-for interferences by some local organisations is highly unfortunate.

Asserting that the imbecile act of demanding the arrest of warden, where Sanaton stayed and terming RIMS director and dean "irresponsible" by JFSA is highly unacceptable, the RIMSSU mentioned that RIMS under the supervision of its director and dean have witnessed many positive changes and these improvements and proper management has resulted in RIMS being placed in the 28th rank under the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF), which is a proud moment for all the students and Manipur.

"How can someone who does not have any idea about the working procedure of RIMS call someone irresponsible?" it questioned.

The release further stated that it would be wise for all to honour the magisterial enquiry and stop the blame game in the media while accepting the law to take its own course regarding the death case of Sanaton.

The COVID-19 second wave is on the rise, people should take necessary steps to protect and prevent the situation rather than holding dharnas, organising rallies and spreading false rumours, the RIMSSU release added.
