Cabinet minister should be booked under National Security Act (NSA), demanded the lawyers of Manipur staging protest on Tuesday condemning the incident of shooting and injuring Manipur Advocate General, N Koteshwar by Cabinet Minister on March 6 last. Lawyers also abstained from attending courts pressing for registration of FIR against the accused person(s) involved in the shooting and entrusting the investigation to an independent agency like CBI. Spokesperson of the All Manipur Bar Association (AMBA) advocate Priyobarta alleged that Chief Minister, O Ibobi Singh was trying to conceal the truth behind the incident and demanded that government should publicize the name of minister behind the shooting incident. “The matter is not a light one as a member of Assembly, the highest decision making body of the state, is involved. Government should not remain silent when the minister offered apology. He should be booked and detained under NSA”, he said. Further, submitted representations to the Governor and Chief Minister which would also be forwarded to the Union Home Secretary and state Chief Secretary as well as to the DGP Manipur seeking interventions of the Imphal east district police, as the incident occurred under its jurisdiction at Nongada Political parties like MPP, CPI (M) and civil organizations Ethno Heritage Council (HERICOUN) have also condemned the statement of Chief Minister that no inquiry was needed saying a Cabinet Minister had accidentally shot him and apologized for the same. Without revealing the name of the Minister behind the shooting, the Chief Minister conspired to protect the guilty, they alleged.
