Manipuri women denounce killing of migrant worker
Imphal, June 10 (IANS) A large number of women near the Manipur capital on Sunday launched a sit-in protest to condemn the killing of a migrant worker.
The protest took place at langol Tarung, about 10 km from Imphal.
In the gun attack by a masked man on Saturday night, a construction worker, Mantu Paswn, 20, of Motihari in Bihar was killed. Another worker, Chandan Paswan, 18, was shot in the thigh.
Four of the construction workers had come to a market to buy grocery items when the masked gunman attacked them along a crowded road.
No underground organisation has so far claimed responsibility for the attack.
A woman activist, Chongnu Mante, who participated in the sit-in protest, said: "The killing of the innocent daily wage earner in this manner is highly condemnable. The group behind it should come out and claim responsibility."
