The Joint Action Committee formed following the murder of Athuan Abonmai said it would suspend all forms of agitation following constructive dialogue with the state government.
The JAC and the state government also signed a Memorandum of Understanding following discussions with the Manipur CM N Biren Singh. The Govt will offer the post of a Sub-Inspector to the deceased’s eldest son and Rs 10 lakh as compensation to the family.
The state government will also conduct an inquiry into the circumstances leading to the death of Athuan Abonmai under an officer not below the rank of an Additional Chief Secretary to the Government of Manipur. The inquiry would be completed in 3 months, and the findings would be submitted to the NIA.
The government also agreed for a suitable site, identified by DC in consultation with the JAC, for establishing a graveyard of Athuan Abonmai and a memorial.
Meanwhile, the two suspects in the case were produced before the Chief Judicial Magistrate, Imphal West on Wednesday. The court granted another 10 days of police remand till October 15.
