Agartala: Tripura royal family and Tipra leader Pradyot Debbarma have expressed shock over the incident, where two Kuki women were stripped, molested and gang-raped by a mob of Meitei men in Manipur on May 4.
Demanding justice for the victimized Kuki women of Manipur, Tripura royal family and Tipra leader Pradyot Debbarma has demanded action against the Biren Singh-led BJP government in Manipur.
He said: “The hate experience in Manipur will spread everywhere if the people in charge are not held accountable and heads roll.”

The TIPRA leader also said that his party and the tribal indigenous population of Tripura “stand with our sisters who have faced this in solidarity”.
“Honestly, I feel sick to my stomach. I feel disgusted,” Debbarma said.

The Tipra Party leader also targeted Manipur Chief Minister Biren Singh over the incident and said that he (Biren Singh) must have already known about the incident.
“The Chief Minister said that he was shocked to see the video. come on. He is the Home Minister (of Manipur). It is a small state – Manipur. Apparently the video was circulating around Manipur but we didn’t know about it because the internet was banned,” he said.
He added: “But I am sure the authorities knew about it, he (Manipur Chief Minister Biren Singh) knew about it and he has to be held accountable.”

The Tripura-based TIPRA leader also slammed the Manipur police for allegedly taking sides during the communal clashes in the state.
“All these times, we have been hearing that the police are supporting us. And this video shows that these allegations are not false,” Pradyot Debbarma said.

Meanwhile, Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh said the state government was “considering the possibility of death penalty” for those involved in stripping the two Kuki women.
Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh also said that a “thorough investigation” into the matter was underway.

“A thorough investigation is currently underway and we will ensure that strict action is taken against all the culprits, including consideration of the possibility of death penalty,” Manipur Chief Minister Biren Singh said.
It may be noted that a disturbing video surfaced on social media showing two Kuki women being paraded naked on the street by a group of men from the Meitei community.
The victims were also allegedly gang-raped in a nearby farm.

The disturbing video shows a mob of men molesting two helpless Kuki women as they are being forcibly taken to a paddy field.
Reacting to the video, Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh said: “My heart goes out to the two women, who were treated in the most disrespectful and inhuman manner, as shown in the distressing video that surfaced yesterday.”
Notably, the Manipur Police has already arrested one person in connection with the case on Thursday (July 20) morning.

“After taking suo moto notice of the incident soon after the video surfaced, the Manipur Police swung into action and made the first arrest this morning,” said Manipur Chief Minister Biren Singh.
He added: “Know this, there is absolutely no place for such despicable acts in our society.”

Meanwhile, a day after a disturbing video of two kooky women being paraded naked by a mob in Manipur went viral, the Supreme Court slammed it as a “total constitutional failure”.
Chief Justice of India (CJI) DY Chandrachud on Thursday (July 20) called on the government to take immediate action to ensure the safety of women in the region and sought regular updates on the steps being taken.
Warning of Supreme Court intervention if the government fails to act, the CJI fixed July 28 to take up the case.
