Guwahati, Apr 3: The Supreme Court has directed a CBI probe after 11 years into the death of a 21-year-old girl Reingamphi Awungshi from Manipur who was found death in Delhi.

According to reports, Awungshi was found dead under mysterious condition in her rented flat in Delhi on May 29, 2013. She was resident of Manipur’s Ukhrul district.

The decision of Supreme Court has brought a ray of hope for her family members who have been relentlessly demanding for an independent investigation.


According to the petitioners, the landlords Raj Kumar and his nephew Amit Sharma were involved in the murder of the girl. Amit Sharma was a frequent visitors to the landlord’s residence.

Allegation of foul play and negligence on the part of local authorities have long plagued the case.

The family members have alleged that initial investigation by the police was incompetent and bias with an intention to shield the accused.

The Supreme Court said: “apparently there seems to be no reason for a young girl of 21 years of age to commit suicide. Prima facie it does not seem to be a case of suicide.”
