Women Bodies Decry Detention Of Landhoni

IMPHAL, Apr 22: All Manipur Tami-Chingmi Apunba Nupi Lup, Universal Mothers’ Organization, Apunba Manipur Kanba Ima Lup and All Manipur Nupi Samaj have strongly denounced prolonged detention of Moirangthem Landhoni through application of different Acts.

At a joint press conference held at BOAT, Palace Compound today, these women bodies demanded that Landhoni should be set free at once without any condition.

The women bodies have also warned of taking recourse to various intense agitations against the Government if Landhoni is not release.

Landhoni was arrested from Guwahati while going to meet her husband, an alleged member of a UG group, on August 18, 2010. After six months in jail, she was granted bail by the Government of Manipur. But she has been re-arrested by NIA and kept in the Central Jail of Guwahati where she has undertaken a fast unto death stir against what she described as ‘unjustified trial process of NIA’ since March 8, 2011.

Addressing the press conference, representatives of the four women bodies asserted Landhoni is not a UG and so her detention through application of different Acts is illegal.

Moreover, Landhoni is a mother and in consideration of her children, she should be released at once without any condition, they added.
