IMPHAL, Oct 1 NNN : The three accused in the Ningombam Satyabhama murder case appeared in the court of Imphal West District and Sessions Judge here on Tuesday, but the next hearing of the case has been fixed on October 17.
However, the trio had to give their signatures inside the prison van for their appearance before the court as large number of women hailing from several women organizations including Khwairamband bazaar vendors stormed the Chierap Court complex shouting slogans.
All the accused remained inside the van because the situation appeared insecure for them to personally present before the Judge as the agitating women started shouting slogans after surrounding the accused.
The Judge then put off the next hearing of the case on October 17.
The women protestors held placards that read “We Demand Justice for Satyabhama and “Hang the Culprits.”
The prison van later sped away from the site under heavy security arrangement.
The three accused in the Satyabhama brutal murder case are Toijam Theus, 27, of Thambalkhong Sabal Leikai, Thoudam Jibon, 27, of Irilbung Macha Ahal Mayai Leikai and Biju Kshetrimayum 28, of Irilbung Bazaar.
Satyabhama, a research scholar of Regional Institute of Medical Sciences (RIMS) was found murdered at Bashikhong Loumanbi in Imphal East district on April 3, 2013.
