THOUBAL, Mar 7 : Locals of Langathel Maning Leikai organised a sit in protest condemning the brutal killing of one Nongmaithem Dolen by his own father, Nongmaithem Kunje, at the residence of the deceased on March 5.
The locals also organised a public meeting and resolved to banish the accused from the locality.
The irate locals further resolved to demand the authority concerned to bring justice for the deceased.
