The Supreme Court on Monday asked several questions to the state and central government in a very stern tone regarding the Manipur violence.
Raised questions on the role of the police and also made sharp comments on the role of the police.
Along with this, the Supreme Court has asked to form an inquiry committee on Manipur violence, in which experts including women judges will be involved.
The Supreme Court will hear the matter tomorrow as well.
The Supreme Court termed the crime against women in Manipur as ‘appalling’, said it did not want the Manipur police to look into the matter. Therefore, a separate inquiry committee headed by the court is necessary in this matter.
Regarding the Manipur violence, the Supreme Court asked the Center and the state government to “inform us what kind of legal aid you are providing to the victims”.
On the Manipur violence, the Supreme Court said it wanted to know, among other information, how many people have been arrested so far.
The top court said that we would also like to know about the rehabilitation package for the affected people of the state.
Describing the viral video as gruesome, the Supreme Court asked the state government what the police was doing at that time? Why was the FIR in the video case transferred to the Magistrate Court on June 24?
Noting that the incident came to light on May 4, the court asked why the police took 14 days to register the FIR.
