IMPHAL, Jan 24: Along with raising slogans that the killing of Chairman of Board of Secondary Education, Manipur Dr N Kunjabihari is a challenge on the student community, students of schools and nursing institutes in Imphal West and Imphal East districts today protested by wearing black badges.

Responding to the call of three student bodies, AMSU, DESAM and MSF, students launched a black badge protest decrying the killing of Dr Kunjabihari and termed it as a challenge to the student community as a whole.

Talking to media persons in connection with the protest demonstration, assistant secretary of DESAM A Thoithoi, HRD secretary of AMSU N Dipanjit and auditor general of MSF M Bidharaj unanimously stated that student community strongly condemn the killing of Dr Kunjabihari in his own office room by unidentified armed persons.

The three student bodies have been demanding the Government and other UG groups to come out with a clarification on the killing.
