In Manipur, on May 4, two women were paraded naked by a mob of more than a thousand people, the video of which surfaced in front of the country on July 19. There is anger in the whole country after the video of this incident surfaced. Demonstrations are being held from the road to the Parliament regarding this incident. Here the police had identified those 14 people from the video circulated on social media.
The violence that started in Manipur on May 3 crossed all limits when two tribal women were lynched by a mob of over a thousand people the next day. The mob first attacked the village, then stripped two women who were running away after saving their lives and paraded them on the road. Not only this, the miscreants also gang-raped both the women. Both the women allege that before they were freed, the mob also sexually assaulted them. A 26-second video regarding this incident surfaced on 19 July. One of the women seen in the video is the wife of an ex-serviceman. Her husband served as a Subedar in the Assam Regiment and had also participated in the Kargil War. The video came in front of the world after about 75 days. However, a complaint regarding this incident was lodged about a month ago on June 21 at Saikul police station in Kangpokpi district. But the police did nothing on the matter.
