The International Human Rights Association Manipur, expressed strong condemnation terming the murder of Niangtuankim as horrendous. The Right body while showing solidarity with the families and relatives of the deceased urged the state government to compensate the family of the deceased on the basis of social justice, equality, and the respect for women’s rights and integrity 
A statement by the rights body alleged that late Niangtuankim @ Kim was murdered by her own husband, identified as Siammuansang of Joshua Road, Zion Veng, New Lamka on the fateful night of July 28, 2020 at Singat Sub-division. 
“ It is concerning that notwithstanding the progress in the state’s legislation and institutional structuring; violence against individuals, especially women is still pervasive. It must also be noted and taken into genuine concern that violence that is often threatening to the life and liberty of a person has serious consequences as it negatively affects families, the community and the country at large”, the statement said. 
It further added that the notion of women welfare and empowerment has yet again come into question. As such, we, the International Human Rights Association Manipur, welcome the lone female MDC of ADCC and women right activists Grace Zamnu condemning of the murder and asking of a stringent action from the law enforcement agencies. 
“We would like to add that violence of any kind, and against anyone, must be discouraged, and strict actions must be taken against any offender. Therefore we earnestly request the Government of Manipur to look into the matter and put an end to such intolerable crime in the state in promoting and strengthening the Social Welfare and Women Empowerment Act, 2015”, the statement said.
