Manipur Cabinet for probe into killing of student

By Correspondent

IMPHAL, July 22 - The Manipur Cabinet has decided to institute a judicial inquiry into the killing of Sapam Robinhood, a class XI student, in a police action on July 8.

This was informed by Deputy Chief Minister Gaikhangam while speaking to the media here after the Cabinet meeting held at the CM�s Secretariat here on Tuesday.

The decision came a day after the Congress Legislature Party (CLP) recommended to institute a judicial inquiry into the killing of Robinhood.

The Cabinet also decided to form a five-member drafting committee with Revenue Minister Th Debendra as the chairman to frame a new visitors� regulation Bill or Inner Line Permit(ILP) Bill to control the influx of outsiders to protect the interests of the indigenous population of the State. The other members of the drafting committee include ruling MLAs Dr Ng Bijoy, N Biren and RK Anand. Special Secretary(Home) M Yaiskul will be the convenor of the drafting committee.

The Joint Committee on ILP System (JCILPS), which is spearheading the ongoing agitation demanding the implementation of the ILP in the State will also be a member of the drafting committee, according to Gaikhangam, who holds the Home portfolio.

The drafting committee will be submitting its report soon so that it could be introduced in the State Assembly within a month. The Dy CM has sought the cooperation from the JCILPS in preparing the draft bill.

Meanwhile, the Janata Dal(United) Manipur State unit has demanded for a tripartite talk involving the State Government, all political parties and JCILPS to resolve the ongoing issue.
