A video purporting to show two Kuki-Zo tribal women being paraded in front of the camera surfaced on social media, generating global condemnation as violence in Manipur continues. After B Phainom village was set on fire on May 4, just one day after ethnic violence broke out in the state, the incident happened in the Kangpokpi district.
The event, according to the police, took place in a different district, despite the fact that the first information report (FIR) was submitted in Kangpokpi.
N Biren Singh, the chief minister, has directed the police to look into this situation right away.
According to Thewire.in, the incident occurred in B Phainom village in Kangpokpi district on May 4. One of the women was abused, the first information report (FIR) filed in connection with the incident says.
In connection with the case of two women who were allegedly paraded in the Indian state of Manipur after being assaulted in public, and caught on camera, four males have been detained.
The arrests happened on Thursday, a day after the video of the assault sparked outrage across India and was denounced by the supreme court and the prime minister, Narendra Modi. More arrests, according to the police, should come soon.
