He also assured of justice in the case in the House saying that let the law goes in its own course and deliver justice to the bereaved family.

Mention may be made that there was a protest against the killing of the youth, locals of Wangkhei Angom Leikai Monday attempted to storm chief minister's bungalow, demanding the CM to drop Biren from ministership on March 21 .

Later, police allowed some protesting leaders to proceed and submit a memorandum to the chief minister, O Ibobi Singh.

The memorandum stated "Ajay should be awarded capital punishment and Biren, who gave gun to his son, should resign as minister or drop from the ministership otherwise," M Babu, convener of a JAC formed in connection with the killing of Rojer said.
