JTMM-G warns of action against minister

Siraha, June 12:

The JTMM- Goit today has warned of taking physical action against Minister of State for General Administration Ram Chandra Yadav.

JTMM-G Siraha in-charge Pradip, in a statement, stated that as the incident occurred in the presence of minister Yadav, he has to take the responsibility of the beating and death of JTMM-G’s innocent cadre Manoj Yadav.

The statement has flayed the beating of Manoj by locals and made a demand to announce late Yadav a martyr. As minister Yadav was the ‘cause’ of Manoj’s death, strict physical action will be taken to him, the statement said. Locals, on the charge of killing of teacher Surya Narayan Yadav of Nahara Rigaul-1 by JTMM-J four days ago, beat up Manoj and handed him to the police the very day, District Police Office (DPO) said.

Manoj who was in police custody was taken to Siraha hospital for treatment yesterday and he died while undergoing treatment at 5 am today.

Manoj who sustained critically injury at his head died in course of treatment, SP at DPO Mingmar Lama said.

Manoj was a student of Janta Secondary School at Nahara Rigaul. The dead body has not been handed to family members till late this evening.
