The United Women Organizations Tamenglong (UWOT) strongly condemned the use of force against the peaceful protestors demanding justice for suspicious death of (Late) Ms. Chungamuu Riamei , sustaining severe injuries at the hand of state police force. 

A statement signed by President of UWOT,  Aduanliu said that the very act against the peaceful protesters is a clear violation and an attempt to suppress tribal people’s rights instead  of ensuring justice by the state government.

Recalling the incident, she said that Late Ms. Chungemliu  Riamei  W/O Mr. Kansanng  Tombe @ Jackson of Moirang Pansang Leikai, Bishnupur,  was found dead in a very un-natural manner inside her marital residence on August 17, 2019.

UWOT expressed serious concern on the rapidly rising violence against women in the state of Manipur and the inept  handling of such cases by the state  government  including the recent mysterious death of (Late) Babysana, whose dead body was found hanging inside the hostel of Standard Robarth Higher Secondary School, Canchipur on the morning of July 18, 2019. 

Highlighting several demands regarding the death of Riamei and also the atrocities of the police upon the peaceful protestors, she said that UWOT demand immediate impartial and thorough  investigation regarding the  suspicious death of both Late Ms. Chungamllu Riamei and Late Babysana.

UWOT further demanded to immediately identify and book all the persons involved and to device an effective means and mechanism to prevent all forms of violence against women and children.

Condemning the atrocities of the police on the peaceful protestors, they demanded to issue immediate suspension order for all the police personnel involved in using force against the peaceful protestors, award exemplary punishment as per the law of the land to the guilty persons, guarantee that no arm or force is to be used against the peaceful  protesters demanding  for delivery of justice in future and compensate adequately  against the medical  expenses incurred by the victims 

UWOT further extended solidarity  to the JACs of Late Ms. Riamei and Late Babysana.
