Youth’s Forum for Protection of Human Rights (YFPH) expressed disappointment to the practices of mob judgement  by the local Club and Meira Paibi of Khabam Lamkhai, Imphal East by ostracizing a particular household headed by women.
“Taking the advantage of no male members in the household, the local club and Meira Paibi of Khabam Lamkhai ostracized the particular household by locking the door and not allowing a single members of the household to enter the house”, a statement said.
“The most interesting area is that the local club and the Meira Paibi resolved to ostracize the entire members of the household by not realizing the fact that they are taking the law of the land into their hands. The resolution to ostracize the family members was signed by the chair holders of the local club and Meira Paibi” the statement of the YFPH said.

The Chief Minister said this during the launching of the Case Information System (CIS) national core version 1.0.
However, no swift actions could be seen taken up with regard to this particular case of ostracising women of Khabam Lamkhai, Imphal East from the locality by the local club and Meira Paibi which falls under the jurisdiction of Heingang Police Station.
