Manipur Violence: Manipur Police has arrested four persons, including the primary suspect in relation to the Manipur viral video parade depicting the kidnapping and gangrape of two women. Although the incident happened in May, the viral video has lately caused a great deal of outrage.
Recently, a disturbing video showing two Manipur women being paraded naked has gone viral, sparking outrage from the Indigenous Tribal Leaders' Forum as evidence of heinous act.
