A team of 10 women leaders belonging to Thawai Mirel called on the Governor of Manipur, Anusuiya Uikey at Raj Bhavan and requested to take appropriate action against the security personnel involved in the atrocities against women and students.
The team recalled the incident of atrocities against the agitating students by the RAF and yesterday’s incident of a lathi charge on women in Imphal East district by security forces.
They demanded for retrieval of the mortal remains of the two missing students, whose video went viral, so that their families could perform last rites, and requested the Governor to take action against the culprits. The team also raised the issue of atrocities against drivers and transporters on the national highways to the Governor.
