Manipur: Centre Asks Twitter To Remove Women's Molestation Video

A video that allegedly shows two women in Manipur being sexually assaulted on a road has gone viral. The alleged viral video has kicked off a political storm ahead of the Monsoon session of Parliament that gets underway on Thursday.

The Centre has asked Twitter and other social media platforms to remove the video as the matter is under investigation.

Downright inhuman: Smriti Irani

Union Minister for Women and Child Welfare Smriti Irani spoke to the state chief minister and also responded to the alleged video. 

Irani posted on Twitter saying, 'The horrific video of sexual assault of 2 women emanating from Manipur is condemnable and downright inhuman. Spoke to CM N Biren Singh ji who has informed me that investigation is currently underway and assured that no effort will be spared to bring perpetrators to justice.'

Cops making all-out effort to arrest culprits: SP

In a first official response to the alleged video the Superintendent of Police (SP), K Meghachandra Singh said a case of abduction, gang rape and murder was registered at Nongpok Sekmai Police Station of Thoubal district against unidentified armed miscreants. Investigation has started and the state police is making an all-out effort to arrest the culprits at the earliest.

 The press note, issued by the SP, was also tweeted by BJP leader and IT Cell in-charge Amit Malviya.

The press note gave details of search operations being conducted out by the State Police and Central forces in different sensitive fringe areas of both valley and hill districts of the state.

In one such operation, two arms and two magazines were recovered by the District Police, Imphal East.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi in his tweet has questioned the central government claiming that the prime minister's silence has pushed the state into anarchy.
