The killing of sub-divisional Officer (SDO) of Kasom Khullen Sub-Divsion , Ukhrul district, Dr Thingnam Kishan along with his two co-staff after being kidnapped was related with ransom demand, said Manipur chief minister, O Ibobi Singh Monday. Giving reply to a question raised by the opposition leader, Radhabinod Koijam of NCP in the House of Manipur Legislative Assembly today, the chief minister said that NSCN (IM) have killed the SDO and his two subordinate staff after kidnapping for ransom. Earlier, O Joy Singh, MLA initiating the discussion on the brutal killing of Dr Kishan and his two subordinate staff criticized the state government for not able to arrest other main culprits involved in the case other than self style Lt Col Hopeson Ningshen who was also handed over by the outfit to CBI. According to Joy, two other leaders of the outfit behind the murder are at large and government has taken no action to arrest the two culprits, self styled major Ashang and Apho Sibo. Opposition leader Radhabinod raising the matter in the house has asked the state home minister whether government has established the motive behind the killing and what action has been taken up to check future happening of such crime. In his reply, chief minister, O Ibobi Singh said that the three government employees were killed after abduction for ransom amount. “NSCN (IM) may have killed the SDO and his staff for not meeting the demand of the outfit to pay them the funds released for the NREGS job card holders without any condition but it could not be confirmed officially,” he said. The investigation into the case undertaken by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is in progress. Despite entrusted to the CBI, government is also making efforts to arrest the other two alleged culprits, Ibobi said stating that two of the most wanted NSCN (IM) leaders in the murder case are yet to be arrested by the police.
