Imphal, December 26 2012: Alleging that Union Home Minister is antagonistic towards the people of Manipur, Senior Citizens for Society, Manipur has demanded a CBI probe into the Chandel incident to punish Livingstone Anal, a self-styled Lt col.of NSCN-IM.

Talking to the media at the office of SCS here, advocate Khaidem Mani, secretary SCS said the Chandel incident where Livingstone had 'molested' film artiste Kh Momoco in addition to physically assaulting her and attempting to kill two of her colleagues by shooting at a concert was not only serious crime against the trio but it is indeed a disgrace to the women society as a whole.

The case regarding the incident should be handed over to the CBI instead of Manipur police, he demanded.

He further demanded that the state Government should determinedly put pressure to the Central Government to book Livingstone, the main accused in the Chandel incident and punish him at the earliest.

A memorandum regarding the matter will also be dispatched to the Prime Minister, Khaidem Mani added and referred to the recent statement of Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde published in The Hindu and accused the Home Minister of being a leader who is antagonistic to the people of Manipur.

In the newspaper report, Shinde contended that the statement made by Manipur Dy CM Gaikhangam was contradictory when he said that the state Government did not recognize the existence of peace camps in Manipur while the Dy CM had reportedly instructed the Assam Rifles to close down the peace camp in the state.

He also said at the same time that "the AR cannot close down a peace camp opened by the Union Home Ministry." The report also mentioned that the Home Minister had instructed the state Chief Minister to refrain the Deputy Chief Minister as his contradictory statements had caused more confusion among the people.

Such act of the Home Minister has clearly indicated that he is against the people of the state; he accused and said that this matter will also be mentioned in the memorandum to be submitted to Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh.

Mani also appealed to the protesters to avoid violence and communalization of the general strike called by Film Forum Manipur and Manipur State Shumang Leela Council against the Chandel incident as far as possible.

Terming the public protest against the Chandel incident as a right move, Prof L Sadananda, general secretary, SCS said the police action unleashed during the band called against the Chandel incident had shown they were taking the law in their hands which should be stopped.

However, the public should enforce the strike in a democratic manner, he appealed while terming the killing of a journalist in police firing during the course of the bandh and damaging of two ambulances belonging to Jawaharlal Nehru Institute of Medical Sciences (JNIMS) as unfortunate incidents.
