Union Home Minister Amit Shah has intervened in the harrowing incident of sexual violence against women in Manipur. He personally spoke with Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh regarding the distressing video that emerged, showing two Kuki women being paraded naked by a group of men in the violence-hit state.
