IMPHAL, Sep 21 : The proscribed RPF has announced that it would award capital punishment to Khangembam Sanjoy Singh alias Athoi alias Pambei (28) of Kumbi Setapur Maning Leikai and Leishangthem Khomei (53) of Haraorok Mayai Leikai for outraging the modesty  of a minor girl at Takhel Sanjenbam on September 12.
In a statement issued to the press today, the outfit said that Sanjoy was on probation to see if he could be recruited into the outfit. During the probation period he was handed a 9 mm pistol for safe keeping as it was not possible to carry the said gun amid the tight security, said RPF. The gun was purportedly used to defile the young girl.
Sharing the grief and pain of the defiled child and the hurt family members, RPF said that capital punishment for any rapist is its belief and added that capital punishment would be awarded to the rapists. Another accused, Leishangthem Khomei is not connected with the outfit in any manner, said RPF and added that he had served time in 2018 for outraging the modesty of the same girl.  Stating that outfit has taken serious note of the case, RPF said that it will award the capital punishment to the two rapists.
