People remember RIMS firing incident

In memory of nine people slain in indiscriminate firing by CRPF personnel inside the erstwhile Regional Medical College campus renamed as Regional Institute of Medical Sciences nearly two decades back, the 21st RIMS Firing Victims’ Memorial Day was observed today at the victims’ memorial square, RIMS Gate.

People paid floral tributes to the images of the slain citizens at the memorial square and appealed to the security forces to abstain from any action that could create everlasting fear psychosis. On this day in 1995, the CRPF personnel opened fire inside the then RMC campus killing nine persons, including a medical student.

The obituary was organised by the RIMS Firing Victims Memorial Observation Committee, Lamphel.
