Bring Justice for Richard #justice4richard

      Justice4Richard !

      Imphal, India

On the 18th April 2012, Loitam Richard, a 19 years old architecture student was found dead lying in a pool of blood in his hostel room. Police investigation and witness have revealed that he was assaulted the day before in his hostel and died sometime during the night.

Archarya NRV school of Architecture, Bangalore, the investigating police team and some news daily have blamed the death possibly due to a minor road traffic accident he met few days ago and drug abuse.

However, his parents believe he was severely assaulted and died sometime soon without anyone coming to his help. Initial post-mortem have revealed that he had sustained head injury with bleeding in his brain and several other injuries in his body including wounds which we believe are defensive in nature.

Many days have passed, and no one has been arrested or held accountable for the unfortunate incident and questionable events that followed after.

According to his parents, Richard was the best son they could wish for, who was very strong academically and in sports. They strongly deny the story of linking drug abuse to the death of their well-mannered son and believe it is an attempt to malign and defame their loving son and the tragic incident.

Please join us in demanding a fair and thorough investigation, including looking for possible aggravating factors as deserved by any other citizen of India and give justice to Loitam Richard and his bereaved family.

      human has to be treated as a human and in any dictionary(if it exists) it is inhumane. I wish I had power to punish the criminals....
