Imphal, January 19 2017:
One Haobijam Manichandra who has alleged an SI of abducting and physically assaulting him today demanded the authority concerned to take up stern action against the SI and his team.
Speaking to mediapersons at Thanga Chingkha Leikai, Haobijam Manichandra (35), s/o Haobijam Ibohal of Thanga Chingkha Leikai recounted that on January 18 at around 11.30 pm, police personnel shouted from outside his house to open the door.
When refused to comply, four police personnel broke open the door and arrested him without showing an arrest warrant.
Manichandra said that he was blinded folded and taken away in a gypsy.
The vehicle stopped before reaching Keibul Lamjao police station.
One SI Pradip then asked him if he is a former member of MSF and further demanded him to disclose all the illegal activities he had carried out in the past.
Apart from asking unnecessary questions, he was even physically assaulted.
His family members and locals of Thanga Chingkha Leikai approached the Assam Rifles in Thanga Post.
When told that Manichandra was not arrested by the AR, they went to Keibul Lamjao police station.
Manichandra was given a personal recognizance bond and released from custody this morning at 9.30 .
"I was falsely charged because I was a member of MSF.
Such treatment is highly condemnable and should not be repeated.
Stern action should be taken up against SI Pradip and his team," Manichandra said.
