Imphal, May 23 2010: The Senapati District Students' Association (SDSA) has submitted an ultimatum to IG (L&O-III), V Zathang to take up disciplinary action against some Manipur Police Commandos and IRB personnel who allegedly tore and stamped on the letter heads of the Association.

In the ultimatum, the president of SDSA, A Pfokrehrii Khrasi said that the act of the police commandos and IRB personnel posted at Mao gate tearing up the letter heads of the SDSA and stamping on it with their feet yesterday is considered as an insult to the SDSA.

It would create more violence and tension in the area, the ultimatum said and demanded that the police commandos and IRB personnel should be immediately withdrawn from Senapati district.

Investigation into the incident should be immediately initiated and befitting disciplinary punishment should be given to the commandos/IRB personnel involved, and the action taken report should be intimated to the office of the SDSA within 48 hours, the students' body demanded.

It further urged the IG to immediately look into the matter.

If the authority fails to punish the personnel involved, the SDSA would be compelled to launch series of agitations, with the cooperation of the general public, against the authorities concerned.
