AMSU files complaint against 4 CSO leaders of Nungba

IMPHAL,10th Sep: Responding to the reactions of civil societies of Nungba area regarding the Nungba incident on September 3, All Manipur Students’ Union (AMSU) has filed complaints against four civil leaders of Nungba on the charge of spreading false news and instigating communal enmity.

In a statement, AMSU publicity secretary Roshan Golmei refuted the charges levelled by CSO leaders including Athan Rongmei, Jasper Kamei, Thuiliang and Ajin Kamei that the union is responsible for causing disturbance in Nungba area by falsely alleging that the union did not file any complaint at the nearby police station regarding the Nungba incident.

Roshan made it clear that AMSU filed a complaint to Noney police station and FIR was registered against the assaulters as union members feared of entering Nungba PS at that time. Moreover, the assaulters even threatened the women passengers in the bus and it was witnessed by some women folk who were working in eateries (rice hotels) nearby Nungba bazar.

Meanwhile, alleging that some CSOs are acting like mouth piece of NSCN (IM), AMUSU has filed complaints against those leaders who fanning communal tension among the different communities without considering seriousness of the Nungba incident.

Pointing out that NSCN (IM) is also involved in torturing or terrorising the hill people, AMSU urged the hill people to collectively work together for uprooting the outfit from the state. The union will not remain silent unless NSCN (IM) cadres involved in assaulting the student leader are punished and all designated camps of the outfit are removed from the state, maintained Roshan.

On the other hand, DM College of Science students’ union and Maharaja Bodhchandra College students’ union have extended support to AMSU while demanding justice to the union leader and arrest of involved NSCN (IM) cadres.

Vehemently condemning the incident of assaulting AMSU members by some miscreants, who identified thmselves as NSCN-IM cadres near Nungba, Kangleipak Thoupang Lup has appealed to the authority concerned to arrest the culprits and give befitting punishment as per law of the land at the earliest possible. In a statement, the Lup announced its support to all movement launched by AMSU regarding the incident.
