Earlier on December, a 18-year-old college student was shot dead and his father received bullet injuries when unidentified gunmen fired at them in Manipur’s Thoubal district.
According to sources, the victim, identified as Ningthoujam Rohit, was shot by unidentified masked gunmen who barged into his residence. Reports suggest that the incident may be linked to a stone-pelting incident in the area involving supporters of two political parties.
Rohit and his father N Premchandra tried to stop the masked gunmen, but they fired several rounds, resulting in Rohit's death. Premchandra also received bullet injuries and is currently undergoing treatment at a nearby hospital.
Rohit was a student of Thoubal college and was preparing for his Class 12 examinations. The news of his death has sent shockwaves across the region, with locals taking to the streets in protest.
