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.
