MANIPUR VIOLENCE

The northeastern state of Manipur has been engulfed in ethnic violence since May 3, in which more than 160 people have lost their lives. Several people have been displaced and their properties have also been damaged. The state is reeling from the worst ethnic clashes between the majority of the Meiteis, concentrated in Imphal valley, and the Kukis, occupying the hills.

Meiteis account for about 53% of Manipur's population and live mostly in the Imphal Valley, while tribals, which include Nagas and Kukis, constitute 40% and reside mostly in the hill districts.

A video from Manipur where two women paraded naked and then sexually assaulted, jolted the country days before the Monsoon Session of the Parliament. The Manipur Police have got in touch with the two victims. A team of women officials and personnel from the Manipur police was formed to probe the case.

The officials said the team had met the family members as well as the two women and the process of recording their statements has begun.

The process of identifying eyewitnesses and recording their statements has also begun.

Police have arrested as many as seven people including a juvenile in connection with the case so far.

The CBI is also probing the heinous incident.
