People of Khurai blocked the road at Lamlong Bazar in Imphal East protesting against taking up fresh investigation on the alleged killing of Sanjit and Rabina in a fake counter in July 2009.
The protest suddenly came up at Lamlong Bazar in Imphal when people learnt of taking up a fresh investigation by CBI as permitted by the district session judge Imphal West.
The protesters raised slogans “Book Yuman Joykumar” “Justice for Fake Encounter” “Record Judicial Confession of Herojit” “Finalised the killers of Sanjit and Rabina” among others.
Talking to the reporters a protester appealed the authority to make out the killers and appease the aroused people of the state saying that the promise of the government to point out the truth has so far not been kept.
“One police personnel Herojit had already spoke the truth that he shot Sanjit dead following an order of a senior officer and why Joykumar the then DGP was not booked” added the protester.
The person who ordered to shoot him should be punished according to the law of the land, said another protester.
In January 2016 after six years of the episode of assassination of Sanjit and Ranbir the police head constable Herojit Singh revealed that he shot unarmed Sanjit to follow the order of Dr. Akoijam Jhalajit who was the additional superintendent of police Imphal West.
On July 23, 2009 Rabina, a pregnant woman who was coming with her child was shot in an alleged police firing at Samumakhong and subsequently Sanjit was shot inside Maimu Pharmacy at BT road which is a walkable distance from the spot where Rabina was shot.
Later a police team dispersed the protesters at Khurai Lamlong Bazar saying that CrPC 144 had been imposed in the protest area.
