Khonoma Village Council (KVC), Khonoma Women Organisation (KWO) and Khonoma Youth Organisation (KYO) have registered their strongest objection to granting bail to Sabir Ahmed who is accused of raping and murdering Pezano Mor.
In a letter to the District and Sessions Judge Kohima, the three organizations said that late Pezano Mor, 51 years, a mother of seven children was raped and murdered “in the most gruesome and cruel manner by the accused Sabir Ahmed and Munir Uddin” on the night of March 26, 2018 at Khonoma village.
After smashing the victim’s head with a club, the two allegedly dumped the body into a water tank and fled the village on the same night.
According to the organizations, it was learnt that the two accused were from Karimganj District of Assam bordering Bangladesh. The accused Sabir Ahmed was arrested from Aizawl, Mizoram and brought back to Kohima and is presently under judicial custody while Munir Uddin is still absconding, it said.
On learning that the accused in custody may apply for bail, the three organizations said that there was every possibility that he may jump bail and become untraceable. The organizations appealed to the District and Sessions Judge that befitting punishment be awarded to the accused and also appealed to all residents of Kohima not to raise bail for the accused. “If any person acts as a bailer, then we shall hold him responsible for the murder” it warned. The letter was signed by KVC chairman Nisamezo Pier, KWO president Lorheno Mor and KYO president Kevineiso Meyase.
