Protest against engineer's abduction in Manipur

By Super Admin

Imphal (Manipur), Mar 11 (ANI): A Joint Action Committee (JAC) has launched an intensive sit-in-protest over the abduction of an assistant engineer of the Irrigation and Flood Control Department (IFCD).

Mohammed Liyaqat Ali was abducted on March 3.

JAC members along with the engineer's relatives staged the sit-in-protest before the heavily guarded Public Works Department Complex, where the IFCD is located.

JAC Chairman Mohammed Abdul Hakim strongly condemned the act and sought a clarification from the abductors and the State government.

"We are sitting here to protest against the abduction of an IFCD assistant engineer by unidentified persons. We are seeking a clarification from the abductors," Hakim said.

Sabara, the wife of the abducted engineer said she received a call from a militant outfit claming to be the People's United Liberation Front (PULF).

"We got a call at 9 p.m. from a person claiming to be a PULF member. He told us that it was a not personal demand, but a demand for the department. I want to appeal to them to release my husband," Sabara added. (ANI)
