The murder accused identified as Sanjay Lodh of Lahorijan in Assam and presently residing in Police Complex, Chümoukedima, has been put under police custody.
In a representation to the Principal District and Session Judge, ASTD appealed not to grant bail under any circumstances to the murder accused as and when he is produced before the court. It rather appealed to take immediate cognizance for the commission of offence against the accused and award befitting punishment as per the appropriate section of law.
ASTD also appealed the legal fraternity not to take up and or refrain from pursuing any bail matter in favour of the accused. It cautioned that defying of the appeal would be doing so on their own peril.
In a separate representation to the Deputy Commissioner, Dimapur, Chümoukedima Ao Senso Telongjem along with sub-ordinate organisations demanded that the accused should not be granted bail under any circumstances but let the law of the land take its own course and ensured that the perpetrator of the crime be given befitting punishment.
It has also demanded that the family of the accused be expelled from Chümoukedima area within one month counting from the publication of this representation. It added that no Naga lawyers should defend the accused and demanded to take up the case at the fast track court.
Chümoukedima Ao Union has further resolved to take the matter in all seriousness and continue demanding from the authority till justice is delivered.
