Bishe`s innocence can be proved only after completion of police investigation: JAC


IMPHAL, June 9: The JAC formed in connection with the alleged murder of Ningthoujam Rebika has refuted the claim made by family members of Ningthoujam Bishe that he is not involved in the case.

Speaking at a press meet at Manipur Press Club today, convener of the JAC Ningthoujam Ajit said that whether Bishe is guilty or not guilty should be decided only after completion of the ongoing police investigation of the case.

He termed the allegation hurled by Bishe`™s family members that people of Heirok stole household items before torching their house as baseless and untrue.

He clarified that the JAC had carried out a publicity round in the locality using loudspeakers to call out Bishe`™s family members to discuss the incident.

However, no one came out and the house was found empty, he said.

Ajit also said that yesterday`™s violence wherein the glass windshields of miister Okendro`™s car were damaged was also unfortunate.

Advisor of the JAC Mandir Laishram who was present at the meet cautioned that the JAC will resort to agitations if the government does not deliver justice on the case at the earliest.

He appealed to civil organizations and legal experts to help the JAC in delivering justice to the killing of Rebika.

He mentioned that mob justice has been taking place in the society as people are not satisfied with the kind of justice deliverance by the government.

It may be mentioned that Ningthoujam Bishe had called a press conference during which he claimed that he was not involved in the killing of Rebika.

He also said that police picked him up for interrogation following the incident but released later.

His residential house was burnt down by a mob on the day Rebika was found raped and murdered. Houses of another two individuals including the main accused identified as Tekcham Jasraj, 24 alias Yaima were also torched by the irate mob.
