IMPHAL, Oct 8: Members of the JAC formed in connection with the sexual assault of a minor inside the ECG room of  RIMS, have demanded the Chief Minister to ensure that befitting punishment is awarded to the ECG technician involved in the crime.
Speaking to media persons at Manipur Press Club today, the JAC convenor Konsam Raj said that the JAC submitted a memorandum containing numerous demands, including appropriate punishment for the culprit to the Chief Minister today.
He narrated that the incident which occurred in the wee hours of October 3 inside RIMS is the first of its kind in the history of the State and such acts against a minor girl in a medical establishment is indeed unfortunate and condemnable in the highest term.
Demanding necessary charge sheet to be submitted before the Court within 30 days, Raj cautioned against any kind of influence to the investigating agency of the case.
He continued that over and above her earlier illness, the minor victim is now burdened with mental trauma due to the harrowing incident and demanded RIMS authority and the State Government to assist in the treatment of the victim.
He further demanded appropriate compensation taking the victim's future into consideration and warned that if a positive response is not received, the JAC will launch stringent agitation.
