Manipur Violence -Protest broke out after the viral video

Manipur Violence: In a shocking and deeply disturbing turn of events, a graphic video has emerged from the northeastern Indian state of Manipur, showing two women being forced by a baying mob to walk naked. The video has sparked outrage and brought attention to the months-long sectarian conflict that has been tearing the state apart. The video, which originally surfaced on social media, depicts a horrific scene where the two women are stripped of their dignity and subjected to humiliation and abuse by a mob. They are forced to walk naked while being verbally assaulted and threatened by the group of ‘clothed men’.

This incident happened on May 4 according to ITLF (Indigenous Tribal Leader’s Forums) but police came into action only when the video got viral this week. On Twitter Manipur police has described the incident as a “a case of abduction, gang rape and murder.” Officials have said that police raids are going on and four people have been arrested related to this matter.
