It should be noted that a video from Manipur on May 4 had surfaced on social media on July 19, which created a stir across the country.

In the video, two Kuki women were paraded naked, molested and one of them gang-raped by a mob of lecherous men in a paddy field in Manipur’s Kangpokpi district.
Ever since the video went viral on social media, organizations across India have been demanding justice for the victimized Kuki women.

Reacting to the incident, Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh said that there have been hundreds of similar crimes against women in the last three months.
Manipur has been on the boil since May 3, when ethnic clashes broke out between the Meitei and Kuki communities, followed by widespread violence in the northeastern state on May 3.
