Manipur  police have announced a cash reward of Rs one lakh to anyone who provides information on the suspects in the Churachandpur murder and loot case.

On September 4, miscreants shot dead an employee of the State Bank of India (SBI), Arambam Ranjan Meitei (37) in front of the Churachandpur branch and looted Rs 1.15 crore.

The district police investigating into the case have taken three colleagues of the deceased banker for questioning.

On Monday, Churachandpur district police announced the cash reward of Rs one lakh for any individual who can provide information leading to the arrest of culprits responsible for the murder and loot.

Information may be passed to SP Churachandpur at +919949805651, additional superintendent of police, +918729881284, sub-divisional police officer, +919612502667 and officer-in-charge, +919612136839. 

The identity of the informant will be kept confidential, the police assured.

Meanwhile, a joint action committee (JAC) formed in connection with the murder and loot incident set September 8 deadline to the state government to book the culprits.

After submitting the memorandum to the chief minister N Biren Singh, leaders of the JAC said that it would launch various forms of agitations if the state authority failed to nab the culprit(s) on or before the set deadline.

The convenor of the JAC said that the state government should translate the assurance it has given to the people and JAC within the set deadline.

He further sought the cooperation of the people and civil society organisations in their future course of action.

He informed that copies of the memorandum were also submitted to the Churachandpur DC and state agriculture minister V Hangkhalian, who is the only minister in the BJP-led coalition government from the district.

The announcement of the cash reward and JAC’s deadline came up even as the chief minister assured justice to the family of the deceased banker and instructed the police to seek the assistance of militant groups under suspension of operation with the government in nabbing the culprit(s).

Earlier, Manipur ATM Service Sector has also set a September 9 deadline to the state government to nab the culprits.

While setting the deadline, the body threatened to cease ATM service across the state from September 10 if culprits involved in the robbery were not booked by September 9. 

Mention may be made that two motorcycle borne robbers shot dead the banker while he was stepping down from an ATM cash transporting van before looting a sum of Rs 1.15 crore near the SBI branch in Churachandpur district headquarter.
