Imphal, March 18
In connection with the recent violence which occurred at Kamjong District of Manipur in which nearly 150 houses were burnt leading to the displacement of many families Youth’s Forum for Protection of Human Rights (YFPHR) has appealed the Govt. of Manipur and the MHRC to conduct a fact finding mission to assess the “Human Rights Impact Assessment” as to find out the root cause of the violence and to find out how the violence triggered and who are involved behind the scene.
The Forum appealed the Government of Manipur to provide proper relief materials, foods, water, medicines, cloths, etc for those who are internally displaced keeping particular focus on women and children.
“We have a deep fear that such an act of arson of 15o houses is impossible without proper planning and we do fear that such an act was carried out under proper guidance and instruction by some vested people or institutions to fulfill their interest”, a statement by YFPHR signed by its president Phajaton said.
