The Village Authority Union of Tipaimukh sub-division, Churachandpur, Manipur, in its press release dated April 26 condemns the dastardly acts of personnel of Mizoram Armed Police (MAP) against the innocent villagers of Parvachawm and Lungthulien on two occasions this year.
The Union alleged that Mizoram police personnel, along with arms and ammunition raided Parvachawm village earlier this year on February 19, heinously checked into houses of innocent civilians including the house of the village Chief Malsawm during the wee hours breaking doors and windows, and damaging rice and other household commodities. A good number of innocent villagers were also assaulted and left seriously injured by the Mizoram Police, the release alleged.
The second raid took place when a group of fully armed Mizoram Police personnel crossed over Manipur border unauthorized and entered Lungthulien village, 10 km away from the Parbung sub-divisional headquarter during the wee hours of April 22, the Union alleged. The house of Ralkapthuom, Chairman of the Village Authority was raided by the Mizoram personnel.
The Union further alleged, as no persons were staying in the house during the night, the lock was broken from outside and the MAP personnel intruded into the house and damaged household articles including wooden boxes and stole money amounting to Rs. 3,555 claimed to be a church fund. Not only this, one Lalpiengruol s/o Lalsiem Sanate, an innocent villager, was frisked away by the Mizoram Police across the border and beaten up badly and later released. Lalpiengruol is said to be undergoing medical treatment as he was badly injured.
The VA Union termed the illegal raiding of the Tipaimukh villages as serious infringement of the law of the land and while condemning the dastardly acts of the MAP personnel in strongest terms, urged the Manipur Government to take necessary steps to stop such illegal intrusions from across the State in the future.
Meanwhile, the General Headquarters of the Hmar Students Association, also condemned the heinous act of Mizoram police in Tipaimukh area.
