Maternal Family Sticks A Foul Play Stand

IMPHAL, Feb 23: Maternal family members of Tombisana, who reportedly died from consumption of poison, have contended that she could not have taken such an extreme step but it was the family members of her husband who killed her.

Talking to mediapersons at the Kongpal Kshetri Leikai maternal home of late Tombisana today, her mother Ningombam Ongbi Bimola Devi demanded justice and said necessary legal action should be initiated against all those involved in killing her daughter.

She asserted that her daughter Tombisana was not a type of person who would take her own life. It is the family members of Tombisana’s husband who strangulated her and later poured poison into her mouth to pass off that she committed suicide.

Police should arrest the husband, mother-in-law, brothers-in-law and sisters-in- law of Tombisana for questioning. Only then the truth would come out, Bimola demanded.

It may be recalled here that Ningombam Ningol Irom Ongbi Tombisana (20), w/o Irom Herojit (25) of Kiyamgei Maning Leikai was admitted to RIMS Hospital at around 9.55 pm on February 20 after she allegedly consumed poison. But she passed away at around 10.15 pm.

On the day Tombisana passed away, her husband Herojit is quoted to have said that when he came home for meal at around 7 pm, Tombisana said she was not feeling well and went to bed. But when he went near his wife, he came to know that she had consumed pesticide and immediately brought her to the hospital.

However, Bimola, mother of Tombisana, has questioned, if at all her daughter consumed poison, why she was taken to the hospital at around 9.55 pm only, when her husband came to know that she consumed poison at around 7 pm.

Bimola further asserted that the fact that her daughter was strangulated first and then poured poison into her mouth has been known from the post-mortem report. Not much poison could be found inside the stomach of Tombisana when the post-mortem was conducted at JNIMS. Her stomach was still full from the feast of the Mapam Chakkouba of her brother. The doctor who conducted the post-mortem also told the family members waiting outside the mortuary that the quantity of poison found inside the stomach was not enough to kill her, Bimola informed, adding that while alive her daughter had also narrated about the ill-treatment in the hands of her in-laws
