The Manipur police have transferred a list of 20 cases to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), including the tragic incident involving a seven-year-old boy from a mixed Kuki-Meitei background, along with his mother and aunt, who were all fatally burned. This distressing incident is among those being investigated by the CBI, according to officials familiar with the matter.
During an unsettling encounter on June 4, young Tonsing Hangsing sustained a gunshot wound to his head amid a clash with armed individuals representing the “majority community.” After the intervention of the Army, Tonsing’s mother, Meena Hangsing, and his aunt, Lydia Lourembam, were transported in an ambulance en route to Iroisemba in West Imphal, accompanied by a police escort.
However, their journey was obstructed by a gathering of approximately 2,000 individuals from the Meitei community. In this tumultuous situation, the ambulance was halted, permitting the driver and nurse to escape. Law enforcement officers, who had discharged warning shots into the air, were compelled to withdraw. Regrettably, the enraged crowd proceeded to set fire to the ambulance, with Meena Hangsing and Lydia Lourembam trapped inside, as reported by the officials. Notably, the boy’s mother and aunt identified as Meitei Christians, while his father, Joshua Hangsing, hailed from the Kuki ethnicity.
Furthermore, it has been reported that a team from the Border Security Force is anticipated to be stationed in Thawai Kuki village, located in the Ukhrul district. This decision follows an incident on the previous Friday in which three individuals lost their lives, according to sources.
