Outlawed Manipur insurgent group claims responsibility for killing rape accused

The outlawed insurgent group, the United National Liberation Front, has formally claimed responsibility for gunning down Dhanachandra Heisnam of Thanga Heisnam Mayai Leikai in Manipur’s Bishnupur district on Sunday.

A statement said that Dhanachandra along with his four relatives had allegedly gang-raped a girl of the same village on February 13, 2018. They left the unconscious girl believing that she was dead.

Meanwhile, womenfolk of the village staged a protest on Monday against the killing of Dhanachandra and said that the body would not be claimed until the killers were nabbed.
