The court, nine months after the murder of Ramchanphy Hongray (19) a girl from Manipur, framed charges against Pushpam Kumar Sinha (29) for murder and for tampering evidence.
According to a press statement issued by member control arms foundation of India (CAFI) Mary D Khuvung said women activists from Manipur women gun survivors network (MWGSN) were also present at the court. “There are growing incidences of violence against women and especially against women from the Northeast living in Delhi. We will not let the culprit go free on bail and will fight till justice is done” said Binalakshmi Nepram, founder MWGSN and secretary-general, CAFI.
“It’s a very unfortunate incident that resulted in the death of Ramchanphy Hongray but having faith in the judicial system, I am confident that justice would be done” said Riju Raj Jamwal, advocate and founder CAFI.
On October 24, 2009 Ramchanphy Hongray was assaulted, strangulated and burnt to death to remove evidence by her next door neighbour, Pushpam Kumar Sinha at Munirka, South Delhi. The reason for the murder as stated by Pushpam was that Hongray utterly rejected his advances on her.
The statement said that the matter has been put up for hearing on November and December, 2010 in the court of D.K. Sharma, additional session judge, Patiala House Court. “I hope that the accused will be punished and the compensation we are seeking will be given to us at the earliest” said elder sister of Hongray.
