Supreme Court Notice For Centre, Manipur In Road Rage Case Involving Biren Singh's Son

Ajay Meetai, Chief Minister Biren Singh's son, was awarded 5 years jail for firing at Irom Roger


New Delhi:  The Supreme Court today sought responses from the Centre and the Manipur government on a plea by parents of a youth who was killed in a road rage case in 2011 by Ajay Meetai, the son of present Chief Minister N Biren Singh.

The parents alleged that they fear for their safety.

A vacation bench comprising Justices L Nageswara Rao and Navin Sinha asked the union home secretary and the chief secretary of Manipur to respond by May 29 on the plea by Irom Chitra Devi, mother of Irom Roger.

Ajay Meetai, son of the Chief Minister, has been awarded five years jail term for firing at Roger in a road rage incident on March 20, 2011.

Irom Roger had allegedly not allowed Ajay Meetai, who was in his SUV, to overtake. The incident irked Meetai, leading him to fire at Roger who later died.

The plea, filed through advocate Utsav Bains, alleged that the parents of the Irom Roger were fearing for their safety in the state ruled by BJP through Biren Singh. 

Moreover, no lawyer was willing to appear on their behalf in the  high court which is hearing the appeal against conviction.
