AJUCA begins probe into cop’s death
JIRI, 10th Oct: Suspicious over the nature of death of police constable Moirangthem Bikerjit, who was found dead in Jiri River after remaining missing since October 6, All Jiribam United Club’s Association (AJUCA) has started its own independent investigation into the death.
As part of the independent probe, AJUCA team led by its president Mutum Maipaksana went to a cemetery located at Namdailong and Lakhinagar in Assam’s Cachar district where Bikerjit’s motorcycle was found parked.
During the probe, the team was told by some local people that they saw three persons drinking liquor under a tree near the cemetery on the day Bikerjit was reported missing.
According to Maipaksana, Bikerjit went missing after he left his home at around 3 pm on October 6. At about 3.30 pm, his family members tried to contact him but found his phone in switched off mode. As he did not returned home on that day, the family members filed a missing report with the local police the following day. In the evening of the same day, they were informed about a dead body found by police and they identified the body as of Bikerjit.
Suspicious over the nature of the death, AJUCA initiated its own probe. The team also came across a report of Bikerjit visiting a liquor vendor but the owner of the vendor was not at home when they visited.
As per finding, it is highly suspicious that his death might not be natural, he said while adding that AJUCA will submit a memorandum along with its findings to the government through the DC Jiribam for swift investigation into the case.
