Khomdram Gambhir family in Khumbong Mamang Leikai in Imphal West in 2018 were eager that Khomdram was finally reuniting with the family at home. The deceased was part of the Manipur rifles for seven years after which he suddenly left the house in Imphal in 1978, without informing his family.

It was a sheer coincidence Khomdram Gambhir was discovered from a whatsapp video by his family in Imphal, when in October 17, 2017, Firoze Shakir, a street photographer videotaped Gambhir at Bandra Bazar for a case study. Firoze said, “children teased Khomdram on the streets calling him Nepali and he would abuse them and shout out that he was a Manipuri – an Indian, not a Nepali”.
