MON: The Naga Mother’s Association (NMA) has demanded justice against the  15-year-old minor victim who was waylaid and gang-raped on 20 June in Aboi, Mon district incident.

“While lauding the prompt action of the law enforcement agency in nabbing the accused, it is deeply pained to observe the upsurge in vicious violence against girls and women while the state is fighting the Covid pandemic, which has added to the insecurity of lives."

NMA President Abei-U Meru writing a letter to the Nagaland Deputy Chief Minister said, "While applauding the law enforcement agency's quick action in apprehending the accused, it was heartbreaking to see an increase in terrible violence against girls and women while the state is fighting the battle against the COVID pandemic, which has added to the insecurity of lives."
