IMPHAL, Sept 1 - Superintendent of Police K Meghachandra of Imphal West district on Sunday appealed to the Joint Action Committee (JAC), formed in connection with the death of a school girl in Manipur, to withdraw its bandh call and come forward for discussion.
�Our doors are still open for discussion with JAC members about the ongoing steps,� Meghachandra said at a press conference in Imphal.
Investigation in the case is still on, and timely discussion with civil society organisations, including student bodies, about the case are also going on, he added.
The JAC has threatened to call a 48-hour general strike from 6 am of September 2 to 6 am of September 4 if the state government fails to meet its demands.
The JAC wants the government to hand over the case to the CBI. It is also demanding immediate release of the arrested JAC leaders. The issue is related to an incident on July 18, when a class 7 student was found dead in her school hostel in Imphal West district under mysterious circumstances.
