Imphal, July 24:

Chairperson of the Delhi Commission for Women Swati Maliwal today came down heavily to both the government of Manipur and the Central government for not meeting victims of the sexual abuse in Manipur violence. She appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Cabinet colleagues to visit the violence-hit Manipur and resolve the issues there. Her appeal came after she met one of the women who was subjected to sexual abuse in Manipur and her husband, an Indian Army veteran.
“Met the husband of the woman who was raped in Manipur. He fought in the Kargil War for the country. He told me ‘you are the first to come here to meet us’. He said that people from Delhi Commission for Women went to meet them with courage and love in these difficult circumstances… I appeal to the Prime Minister and all the big ministers of the country… you have Z+ security and every facility. If I can make it here, you can too. Every problem can be solved with love,” Maliwal tweeted. She also posted a video of her hugging the inconsolable woman, wailing in her arms. “Their tears would not let me sleep for a long time. Till now no one has come to meet them,” she said.
She was among the two women, who were paraded naked and molested in Kangpokpi district, some 35 km from Manipur’s capital Imphal. So far, seven people have been arrested in the Manipur viral video case. The seven accused include a juvenile who allegedly took part in the May 4 incident.
