Roberoy JAC blocks Ningthoukhong stretch of NH 150


IMPHAL, June 4: As the deadline set for the government to produce the culprits involved in the heinous killing of four year old Ningthoukhong boy expired today, a large number of people came out to the streets at Ningthoukhong Bazar and blockaded the Tiddim road (NH-150) thereby preventing commuters to cross Ningthoukhong area in Bishnupur district today.It may be recalled, the JAC formed against the killing of four year old Ningthoukhong boy Roberoy had set a 48 hours dateline on June 2 for the state government to produce the culprits involved in the killing of the minor.Womenfolk and locals blockaded Tiddim road at Ningthoukhong area from 11am today. After some hours, traffic along the highway resumed following deployment of heavy security forces at the area.In an ugly fracas between the agitators and the police during the road blockade, a police officer who was detailed for controlling the situation showed off his service revolver and acted as if trying to kill Thiyam ongbi Rabina, mother of late Roberoy, thereby exposing the ugly face of police brutality while dealing with sensitive issues of the public in the state.The incident happened when Roberoy’s mother, who was filled by emotions, asked the police to shoot her if they could not produce culprits involved in the heinous crime. Immediately after police officer’s action, Rabina fainted and fell on the ground. The Roberoy JAC has expressed strong condemnation to the excessive action of the police officer.Speaking to mediaperson, a JAC spokesperson said action of the police officer to Roberoy’s mother has angered the Ningthoukhong locals and as such demand stern action against the misbehaving police official.The JAC also said intense agitation will be followed till the culprits involved in the killing of minor boy are booked.
