PM Narendra Modi says, “My heart is filled with pain and anger. The incident from Manipur that has come before us is shameful for any civilized society. I urge all the CMs to further strengthen law & order in their states – especially for the security of women and take the strongest measures. Be it any incident in Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh of Manipur, or any corner of the country – rise above politics…”

This was the first time PM Modi spoke about the situation in Manipur after violence between the Meiteis and Kukis in the North Eastern state on May 3. 

The incident happened two months ago; visuals of two Kuki women in Manipur’s Thoubal district being paraded naked went viral on July 19.
