Atrocities, no arrests:
After the Kuki-Meitei clash in Manipur on May 4, Kuki women were forcibly stripped and paraded naked under threat of death. A video of the incident emerged over 2.5 months later. An investigation is ongoing, and although a complaint was filed a month ago, no arrests have been made. The incident was reportedly triggered by false rumors of a Meitei woman’s gangrape, which never occurred.
Congress questions PM, Amit Shah:
Congress general secretary Jairam Ramesh questioned whether PM Modi and Union home minister Amit Shah were unaware of the Manipur incident ahead of the Monsoon session in Parliament, dominated by the issue. He criticized the Women and Child Development Minister for taking 76 days to speak to the Manipur CM or issue a statement.
