UCM visits Robinhood`s family


Reson Haobijam still in serious condition

IMPHAL, July 17: The United Committee Manipur and the June 18 martyrs families visited the family of Late Sapam Robinhood at Lairikyengbam Leikai and donated some cash amount in recognition of the student`™s sacrifices for the ILPS movement.

They also visited several injured persons who are presently undergoing at JNIMS and RIMS including Ch Imobi of Khurai Thangjam Leikai and Reson Haobijam of Khurai Konsam Leikai.

The team also provided some financial help to the injured individuals for their treatment.

Speaking to media persons following the visit, UCM president Johnson Elangbam expressed deep concern against the police conduct during the recent ILPS movement.

He said young students who were participating in the democratic agitations were assaulted in such inhuman manner and inflicted with serious multiple injuries.

He further appealed to police personnel to carry out their crowd control exercise according to the trainings they had received instead of using so much violence.

He further appealed to the Chief Minister to expedite the process of drafting the new bill and complete it at the earliest.

`All political parties and representatives of JCILPS should also be consulted and their suggestions should be incorporated too, in the larger objective of saving the indigenous population of the State`™ he said.

Reson Haobijam, 17, son of H Mani and Sanatombi was admitted in a critical condition with multiple injuries at RIMS after a mock bomb exploded near him during one of the many protests.

A mock bomb splinter was infact taken out from one of his four wounds sustained in the explosion.

A vein on his right hand was cut open and he has been given five units of blood so far since his operation.

Meanwhile, the father of the injured boy said doctors have told the family that one of the boy`s ear drums is damaged and that he would have to undergo a CT Scan examination

However, since the CT Scan machine in the hospital is not functioning and since Reson cannot be taken out of the hospital due to his condition, getting the CT Scan done is getting delayed, he said.

Reson is still in a very serious condition and had another blood transfusion today.
