Manipur: - Brutal Killing of Yengkhom Krishnadas Singh, a social worker.
The student communities of North East Indian states along with civil societies, social workers, Politicians, Human Rights Activists and Scholars demanded CBI Enquiry on the brutal killing of Social Worker Yengkhom Krishnadas in a protest held at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi on June 24. Chief Minister O. Ibobi Singh Government has totally failed to keep the law and order situation of Manipur.
After the ultimatum submitted to Manipur Chief Minister O. Ibobi Singh by Joint Action Committee against the brutal killing of Yengkhom Krishnadas (JCA) to arrest the culprits within seven days, has failed, the student communities of the region protested in national Capital with memorandums submitted to the President, Prime Minister and Home Minister, demanding CBI Enquiry.
Chief Minister's failure to arrest the actual culprits after finding the clues and arresting the kingpin persons has clearly revealed the hidden agenda of the state Government. The public has lost the trust in state Government and its police forces. The justice to deceased and his bereaved family members will only be possible if the case is handed over to CBI.
The kingpin Th. Nando and two persons arrested from Sajiwa Jail in connection with Krishnadas killing and recovering mobile handsets and SIM cards from their custody reveals first, the home department of Manipur which is under care of Chief Minister, has totally failed and secondly, a unambiguous game to divert and cover the actual culprits of brutal killing of Krishnadas is being seen played by O. Ibobi Singh and his police forces by throwing allegation on Th. Nando and his two colleagues who are already languishing in the jail for other crimes committed earlier.

New Delhi based Human Rights Activist Madhu Chandra Spokes Person of North East Support Centre & Helpline who leads to fight the discriminated meted out to North East communities in Delhi and NCR, said, "Why the investigating Manipur police officials failed to find out who is the main culprit(s) who instructed the accused in police custody Smt. Seram Ashalata to collect the ransom of Rs 25 lakhs from Yengkhom (Ongbi) Bimola Devi, the wife of deceased Krishnadas on June 11, 2009? Why not the investigation police officers failed to find out from Ashalata, whom has she handed over the collected ransom of Rs 25 lakhs? No body will trust that Ashalata has handed over to kingpin Th. Nando and two other prisoners inside Sajiwa jail. If so why not the police official on duty at Sajiwa Jail has been left out?"
"The public has huge cry, why investigation police official are able to find out the kingpin Th. Nando and two other fellow prisoners from Sajiwa Jail who are behind the bar in Sajiwa Jail and not the actual culprits roaming free outside. The failure to find the actual culprits roaming free outside, can be only for two reasons. First, the investigating police official and Government concerned have failed to do the job, for which independent enquiry under CBI should be instituted. Secondly, the investigating police official and Government concerned know the actual culprits roaming free and they have been covered and diverted by throwing the ball on Th. Nando and his two fellow prisoners, who were languishing in Sajiwa jail for other crimes committed earlier," says Mr. Madhu Chandra.
In the protest rally held at Jantar Mantar yesterday in demand of justice to Krishnadas killing, Dr. Udit Raj, President of All India Confederation of SC/ST Organizations and Dr. John Dayal - Member of National Integration Council joined the JAC (Delhi) demand of CBI Enquiry.

Dr. Udit Raj and Dr. John Dayal who fight for down trodden people of India have assured their support to Justice Campaign for Krishnadas led by JAC (Delhi) and North East Support Centre & Helpline along with student bodies of North East India.
