IMPHAL | Dec 15

State president of National Students’ Union of India (NSUI), P. Bangkimchandra said the chief minister has reassured to investigate the mysterious death of Pravish Chanam (22), son of Ch. Jugindro of Uripok Achom Leikai who went missing for five days at Noida from September 22 and later found cremated by the authorities of Dr. BR Ambedkar hospital in Noida.

Speaking to media persons during a press meet held today at state office of NSUI, at Congress Bhavan, Bangkimchandra said on September 22, people had staged protest against the death of Pravish, to bring out the truth behind the mysterious death.

On September 25, brother of the deceased, Chandam Rabikanta appealed that CBI should investigate the incident. Later on September 27, after the national executive meet, the chief minister assured that the incident will be investigated with the CBI to find out the truth behind the mystery, he added.

After the assurance was made by CM, no action had been taken up to find out the solution of the case. Instead of bringing out a permanent solution, it seems the present government is playing a technique to find out temporary solutions in order to stop any form of agitation, he added.

NSUI condemns concerned authorities as protests were conducted since September but CM reassured to bring out the truth behind for the mysterious death only now. He appealed the state to find out the culprits involved in the mysterious death and to give punishments under the law. The government should be concerned that many people from the state are settling and studying outside the state and for their safeguard, necessary steps must be taken at the earliest, Bangkimchandra appealed.

Bangkimchandra also said the pending stipend of second batch RIMS BDS student should be given immediately in order not to affect the normal routine of dental OPD of RIMS. He appealed the concerned authority to give proper and actual amount of stipend for the BDS interns.

Besides, he said exams conducted by Manipur Public Service Commission should be conducted under transparency, as issues came up against exams conducted by the commission. The issue of Tribal Research Institute (TRI), deputy director has been under process since years. The post of deputy director for TRI was appointed under the examination held on January 8, 2015 by MPSC. But it is said that the person is not qualified for the post by AMSU. NSUI appealed the concerned authority to conduct examination by maintaining its quality.
