The KSO has been demanding to arrest the killers and at the same time appealed to those involved in the killing to reveal the motive behind the killing of Lekholal.
The student body on June 24 pressed the government through a memorandum to book the assailants within 48 hours. After the deadline the investigating authority requested to extend the deadline and accordingly the dealine was extended for four (4) days. The extended deadline ended today, said the student leader.
The investigation had already established the identities of two assailants but no arrest has been made, said Paotinthang.
The KSO reteriated that as par the decision of the victim family the dead body of deceased will remain unclaimed until the demands are fulfilled.
The student body urged the killers to surrender to the police.
