By Sobhapati Samom

IMPHAL, Feb 3 � Demanding justice in the killing of a school headmaster in a hit-and-run incident caused by a suspected VIP vehicle, students, teachers and womenfolk, besides representatives of various civil society organisations, staged a sit-in protest here yesterday.

Headmaster M Awungshi Nganaongai of Frontier High School, located at New Tusom village in Manipur�s Ukhrul district was allegedly hit by a VIP Scorpio vehicle here on December 18 last. He succumbed to his injures the following day.

�The VIP and his escort team deliberately absconded and the evasive act was supported by the security personnel on duty at Kangla Fort gate,� alleged Tangkhul Katamnao Long Imphal (TKLI), an apex body of Tangkhul students in Imphal, in an ultimatum served to the State Chief Minister O Ibobi Singh.

TKLI said one month has elapsed since the occurrence of the incident but the culprits are still at large and police have not been able to identify or apprehend them.

Demanding arrest of the accused VIP and punishment to the IRB personnel on duty, TKLI has urged the authority to immediately provide a government job to the next kin of the victim, besides ex gratia of Rs 5 lakh immediately.

Even after the expiry of TKLI�s notice on January 24, the government has failed to take necessary action till date, forcing the TKLI to take up the agitation.

�We will intensify our agitation�, warned the TKLI after Home Minister Gaikhangam failed to give any concrete assurance to fulfil their demands.

Poachers held: Two poachers involved in killing Sangai deer in the Keibul Lamjao National Park (KLNP) were caught by the park guards and handed over to police on Friday, reports said.

The poachers were caught while they were cooking the animal meat.

People For Animals (PFA), Thoubal has expressed serious concern over the report of killing of the rare species due to alleged negligence of the KLNP authority.

The PFA, in a statement, also urged the State�s policy makers to take necessary steps to conserve the wildlife in the State.
