Imphal, August 23: A delegation of the North East Student Organisation (NESO), led by its advisor Samujjal Bhattacharya, submitted a memorandum to Union Home Minister Shiv Raj Patil urging him to institute a CBI inquiry into the entire episode of denying weightlifter Monika Devi from participating in the Beijing Olympics.

This episode has adversely affected the sentiment of the people of the entire North Eastern Region as she was the pride of the region and humiliating her is akin to humiliating the people of the entire region, the delegate leader said at the national capital.

The people are very angry about this and they want that the culprit should not only be booked but should actually be punished, he added.
