Imphal, Oct. 11,
Maoist Communist Party Manipur (MCPM) today called on people to unitedly stand while fighting for justice of a rape victim from Thangmeibandh area. A statement of the Maoist has alleged the lady from Thangmeiband area to have been rape by an MLA from the ruling political party.
The Maoist also appealed all people of the state particularly the local leaders from Thangmeiband area to forget the past and stand together to deliver justice to the victim girl.
“There might be some misunderstanding or miscommunication earlier but as the court has directed the police to charge sheet within a stipulated time it is the need of the hour that all the people stand and support the victim girl and getting justice”, the statement said.
“This is a sign of victory and result of the courage of the victim lady”, the Maoist said.
The statement further stated that it is up to the wisdom of the court to decide on who is right or who is wrong but what is unfortunate is the inaction of the law enforcing agency in dealing with the case. Had the accused been a common man than there could have been already many arrest, the statement added.
When justice delivery machinery remains pending for a common person to get justice the Maoist express apprehension on how the mob lynching will be stopped or prevented by the authority, it said.
The Maoist also alleged that the said MLA had still no respect for women and recently the MLA had again eloped a Nepali girl who use to stay as helper at the residence of powerful government employee at Thangmeiband by humiliating the lady victim who was raped by the MLA. The act is nothing but a showcase of how man in power can do anything at the cost of a common people.
The Maoist appealed the people to stand together for justice and said that it will continue to fight for justice of rape victim, fake encounter victim and displaced villagers due to construction of Dam.
