The Joint Action Committee (JAC) formed in connection with the mysterious death of a girl student, N Babysana Chanu on Thursday lauded the High Court of Manipur for handing over the case to the CBI.
Speaking to the media during a press meet held here on Wednesday at Naharol Leisemba Club at Thangmeiband, JAC convenor L Gyaneshwari intimated that the agitations of the JAC has been suspended for some time as the demand to hand over the case to CBI has been fulfilled.
“We take the HC order as a defeat for the government. The government has been turning a blind eye despite repeated appeals and pleas of the JAC to handover the case to the CBI all this while,” she said.
Further asking the state instituted SIT to honour the court’s order, she asked the SIT to furnish relevant documents and details of the investigation to the CBI at the earliest.
The JAC convenor also appealed to the CBI to unveil the truth behind the mysterious death of the girl student.
“As the truth behind the mysterious death is yet to be find out, the JAC has attained only half victory. Nevertheless the agitations are suspended for the time being in honour of the Court order and in view of the volatile situation of the state pertaining to the culmination of the Naga peace talks,” she added.
Meanwhile, Babysana’s father, Ningthoujam Tomchou, on the sidelines told the IFP, “It doesn’t matter now whether the culprits are punished or not. What we want is the truth to be found out.”
While saying that the state instituted SIT has not been able to bring out the truth, he expressed hope that the CBI will be able to unveil the truth behind the mysterious death of his daughter.
