MLA Kh. Joykishan, in the meeting, said, “The state government should declare that the case will be handed over to the CBI and provide proof for it.”

Dr. N. Sarat, a retired post mortem expert said as he witnessed the post mortem (at JNIMS) it was evident that Babysana died by hanging, but it was not certain whether it was a suicide or hanged. How the girl can hang herself in a room where there are mates, he added.

He appealed the doctors who conducted the post mortem to clearly present the report, saying that if the doctors really want to serve the people.

The post mortem was conducted twice. The first was conducted at RIMS and the second was conducted at JNIMS.

It is ridiculous that the about 36 mates in the dormitory of the school boarding don’t know about the incident. They are liable to punish for hiding what really had happened that night, said Sarat.

President of All Manipur Students’ Union, Peter Laishram said the state government fails to find out the truth behind the incident. “We can find out the truth in two days if the government allows student body to investigate over the incident”, he added.
