Forum petitions CM over ‘modification in FIR’
IMPHAL, 24th Mar: Accusing Mayang Imphal police of modifying the FIR with regard to Uchiwa gangrape incident, Forum for Protection of Human Rights (FPHR) has submitted a memorandum to chief minister N Biren on Friday appealing for necessary intervention. The memorandum stated that FIR 13(3)2018 MIPS was registered in Mayang Imphal Police Station under IPC Section 354/498/120-B on March 12. The FIR clearly mentions names of four suspects. Surprisingly, another copy of the same FIR number has emerged lately and it does not have names of the four suspects but define the suspects as some ‘unknown persons’. Moreover, name of the OC in the first FIR was written as inspector M Mutum while it is inspector M Rajen in the other FIR copy. Pointing out that police have released the four suspects, the memorandum further expressed possible manipulation of the FIR by some police personnel of the PS and appealed to the CM to look into the matter for taking up necessary actions against the police personnel involved.
