MUA refutes SP’s assertion on Sora incident

IMPHAL, July 21: Contradicting the statement of Superintendent of Police, Thoubal which appeared in some daily newspapers on July 21 last that Niza Muddin, 12 was killed following an altercation between the villagers of Sora and L. Minou vilage, the Maring Uparap Assembly (MUA) has categorically clarified that the deceased was killed in police firing not by the stand off between the villagers of the two village.

A statement issued by Th Angdun, president of MUA stated that a fierce scuffle had broken out between the villagers of Sora and police on July 18 around 8 pm resulting in the death of Niza Muddin apart from causing bullet injuries to eight persons.

Clearing on the controversial death of the young boy, it said that a statement had already been issued July 19 issued by Md Najim, convenor of the JAC formed in connection with the incident saying that the deceased was killed by bullets of the police.

It further informed that a public meeting held at Sora on July 19 had also resolved that there was nothing sort of a scuffle broke out between the people of the two villages and that village authority/people of T. Minou village had also claimed in a press statement hinting that there was neither an altercation cropped up nor villagers of Sora had entered inside the T. Minou village.

While strongly condemning the SP, Thoubal district for carrying out communal reports that can ignite communal enmity between the two villages, it further slammed the police officer for wrongly pronouncing L. Minou village as T. Minou adding that the responsibility of the SP is highly questionable.

The village authority also urged the State Government to book the culprit(s) behind the killing of Dk Moshilpha alias James who was found murdered on July 3 at around 9:30am and threatened that it would launch intense agitation in collaboration with civil society organizations of State if the concerned authority fails to nab the murderer(s) at the earliest.

It may be mentioned here that the Kakching Police under the supervision of SDPO A. Ganasham is still probing on the killing of Dk. Moshilpa.
