A mob in Manipur’s Imphal East district Tuesday dismantled the house of a man who has been arrested by police on the charge of killing a 26-year-old girl.

Locals of Kergao under Porompat police station of Imphal East stormed the house of the alleged accused Md Rohit alias Rajesh (29) son of late Md Riyajuddin of Khergao Tuesday forenoon. 

Md Rahid was arrested by police on Monday afternoon in connection with murder of 26-year-old Pukhrihongbam Memi Chanu of Ekou Bazar, Imphal East who was murdered and thrown into the river.

The dead body of the girl in a gunny back was recovered from Iril River on August 17 last after she went missing on August 14. Police suspect she was murdered after being sexually assaulted and robbed.

During the course of investigation, police pointed out Md Rohit alias Rajesh (29), the boy friend of the girl as prime accused of the heinous crime and arrested him from his house Monday afternoon.

On the other hand, residents of Ekou Bazar where the deceased girl hailed from, in a public meeting convened Tuesday, demanded that the culprit should be hanged till death within 48-hour.

The meeting formed a joint action committee to press the state government to translate into action the demand put forwarded by them. While setting the 48-hour deadline, the meeting resolved not to accept the dead body of the girl until and unless a positive response is received from the government.

The dead body of the girl is lying at JNIMS morgue. “No ritual ceremony will be performed until positive response comes up from the concerned authority,” Kh Dharmen, the convener of the JAC against Brutal Killing of P Memi Chanu told reporters after the meeting.
