Yambem Meghajit Singh, North Eastern Vision
13 October 2002

Singh, who worked on the audio-visual production company North East Vision’s weekly programme, was killed after being tortured by armed men. His hands had been tied behind his back and his body was covered with bruises. Colleagues suspected that one of the region’s separatist groups had killed Singh, who also ran a shop selling semi-precious stones and was involved in the student movement.

The president of the Manipur Electronic Media Journalists’ Union told Reporters Without Borders that Singh, who was the union’s vice-president, had criticised separatist groups and local politicians on his programme and had also said he was going to investigate corruption in the state.
