Imphal, Jan 21
Youth’s Forum for Protection of Human Rights (YFPHR) has alleged Assam Rifles of committing atrocities to the people in Manipur for the last many decades and expressed strong condemnation to the recent incident of harassment and molestation which led to outraging and modesty of woman namely Ms. Anupam (IPS), SDPO Yairipok by the 12th Assam Rifle posted at Khudengthabi.
A statement of the forum alleged the Assam Rifles of committing Rape and Murder, Rape, Extrajudicial Execution, Torture, Involved in Drug smuggling etc.
It said that kind of atrocities and to IPS officer Anupam clearly proved that if such attitude could have been committed to a respected officer of the state what would have been the situation towards the civilians by the Assam Rifles. One cannot deny the fact the Assam Rifle commits sexual violence as in the recent past there has been a case reported on the 18th of November, 2019 wherein one lady was sexually assaulted by the Assam Rifles personnel at Khudengthabi, it added.
The Youth Forum said that there has been several cases of brutality committed towards the Media Persons, Sick people, Woman traders, Truck drivers, MLAs, Villagers etc by the Assam Rifles posted along the Imphal Moreh Road, Imphal Jiribam Road and wherever, they are posted.
“If the Assam Rifles fails to respect the rule of law than it is high time for the Assam Rifles to Go Back from Manipur”, the YFPR said and urged the Chief Minster to kindly make an urgent intervention to deport the Assam Rifles from Manipur and further appeal the MHRC to take up sue motto and necessary action be taken at the earliest against the Assam Rifle.
