Condolence on the sad demise of Manipuri student, Ms. Mahima Khan

16th January 2020, Pune

The Manipur Students’ Association, Pune (MSAP), a registered Manipuri students’ body in Pune do condole the sad demise of our Manipuri student, Ms. Mahima Khan on the night of Friday, the 10th January 2020. The viral news circulation of the prejudice cause of her death through various social media like Facebook, WhatsApp including some of the Manipuri local print and electronic media and TV channels is unfortunate and heartfelt. The viral news circulated may be treated as the baseless and imaginary.

MSAP along with the bereaved family wish to put the facts and findings of the police to the general public for information and do sincerely request not to believe such baseless news regarding her death.

The statement by the representatives of AMSU through leading Manipuri paper “A class XII student was found brutally murdered after being gang-raped near Khadki railway station, pune ….” Stands as an imaginary and baseless.

Ms. Mahima Khan went to buy some eatables at around 6:40-6:45pm from her home on Friday, the 10th January 2020 and never returned back home.

As per the SOS massage received from the driver of the Pune-Lonavala local train around 7:30 pm of Friday, the 10th January by the Khadki Railway station, two death bodies were recovered by the police from the railway track near Khadki railway station, as per the police report.

The two unknown death bodies were then deposited to the morgue of the Sassoon hospital by the police team at around 10pm of Friday, the 10th January 2020.

On the other hand, the family members were searching whereabout of her over the nearby areas till late night and finally lodged a missing report to the Khadki police station around 11:30pm on the same night.

As a reply to the missing report lodged by the family, the concerned police informed about having a death body and further informed the family to visit the morgue of Sassoon hospital to identify the death body.

The parents of the deceased who were in Manipur rushed to Pune by 11:30pm of Saturday, the 11th January 2020 and established the identity of their daughter. MSAP members and some of Manipuri elders working in Pune were with the parents till the identification process ends.

The lifeless body of Ms. Mahima Khan was claimed by the parents on 12th afternoon about 1:30 pm and brought at their residence. Afterwards, the final rites and rituals were performed in the evening about 5:30pm. In this juncture, the actual cause of her death could not be established yet.

MSAP and the bereaved family are in constant touch and demanding the actual SOS massage of the train driver as well as the detailed interrogation of the train driver in this regard.

In case, there is any possibilities of criminal conspiracy and murder, MSAP and all the Manipuris in Pune will not spare any stone unturned to bring the justice.

We, MSAP are with the bereaved family during this time of grief and deep sorrow of the reparable loss.

May God give her eternal rest and the family the strength to bear the great pain.
