The writ petition was taken up for motion hearing by the Division Bench of Manipur High Court presided over by Chief Justice Laxmikanta Mohapatra. It was filed by the family of one of the victims.

According to sources, the petition says that victims Naobi, RK Ronel and Th Prem, all from Imphal, were apprehended on March 10, 2010, from Char Mile in Dimapur. Their bullet-riddled bodies were found in Assam's Lakhijan area on March 17, 2010.

The petition filed by one of the victim’s family accused Lt Gen Suhag, a former commander of 3 Corps and Col G Shreekumar, commanding officer of an intelligence unit under 3 Corps, for killing the trio.

However, Dalbir Singh Suhag did not hold the post of Lieutenant General at that time. He was then posted at Delhi as a Major General. It was only on April 16, 2011 that Suhag was posted as Lieutenant General in the 3 Corp which was allegedly involved in the abduction and subsequent murder.

Given all these facts, the petition filed against Suhag was proved to be baseless.
