The Supreme Court today sought responses from the Centre and the Manipur government on a plea by parents of a youth who was killed in a road rage case in 2011 by Ajay Meetai, the son of present Chief Minister N Biren Singh.
The guardians asserted that they fear for their security.
An excursion seat including Justices L Nageswara Rao and Navin Sinha asked the union home secretary and the main secretary of Manipur to react by May 29 on the supplication by Irom Chitra Devi, mother of Irom Roger.
Meetai, son of the chief minister, has been granted five years imprison term under segment 304 (culpabale manslaughter not adding up to murder) of the IPC for terminating at Roger in a street seethe episode on March 20, 2011.
Roger had supposedly not enabled Meetai to surpass him in his SUV. The occurrence chafed Meetai who let go at Roger who later kicked the bucket.
The plea, filed through advocate Utsav Bains, alleged that the parents of the victim were fearing for their safety in the state ruled by BJP through Biren Singh. Moreover, no lawyer was willing to appear on their behalf in the high court which is hearing the appeal against conviction.
