Supreme Court Lawyer Gets Death Threat from PLA for Providing Legal Assistance to Family of Victim Killed by Manipur CM’s Son

In what can be called as grave threat to the judiciary and law and order of the country, a Supreme Court lawyer who is representing the family of Irom Rogers, who was killed by Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh’s son N Ajay Meetei, has received death threats from People’s Liberation Army of Manipur (PLA).

In a letter written to the Home Secretary of India, the lawyer has said, ‘This is to bring to your goodself’s notice that I am engaged as a lawyer by the family of Iron Roger’s for filing an appeal in the Manipur High Court situated at Imphal and for filing a petition in the same matter at the Supreme Court of India against the son of the present Chief Minister N. Biren Singh. Consequently, I had visited Imphal for the same from 17th March, 2017 until 19th March, 2017.’

Later, when I returned back from Manipur, I received calls on 22nd March, 2017 at around 3:30 am in the morning. The person who spoke in broken English with a Manipur accent, said that he’s calling from PLA, Manipur and NSCIM and that I shouldn’t go ahead with the case of Irom Rogers, who was murdered by the son of the present Chief Minister N. Biren Singh. I couldn’t understand what was PLA or NSCIM during the call but later when I searched for both on google, I came to know that PLA is terror organization operating in the North East but couldn’t find clarity as to NSCIM. Later during the day (22nd March), I informed Superintendent of Police (CID) Imphal, Manipur about the threatening calls.
