NEW DELHI, Jul. 20, 2023 (TBINN) Supreme Court today said it was very deeply disturbed by the video of two women being paraded naked in Manipur, terming it simply unacceptable in a constitutional democracy.

Taking cognisance of the video, a bench headed by Chief Justice D.Y. Chandrachud asked the Centre and Manipur Government to take immediate action. It observed that using women as an instrument to perpetrate violence in a charged atmosphere is simply unacceptable and that the visuals indicated gross constitutional violation and infraction of human rights.

We are very deeply disturbed by the videos which have emerged yesterday about the way those two women were paraded in Manipur, the bench, also comprising Justices P S Narasimha and Manoj Misra, said.

It is grossest of Constitutional and human rights violation,” C.J.I. said, adding that the court is conscious of the fact that the video, which appeared on Wednesday, was of May 4, 2023 but that makes no difference.

Notably, as soon as the bench assembled to hear mentioning of matters, the C.J.I. said the apex court had requested Attorney General R. Venkataramani and Solicitor-General Tushar Mehta to come to the court.

What action has been taken since May to bring the perpetrators to book and second, what action is the government taking to ensure that this is not repeated because who knows, it may have been isolated, it may not be isolated, it may be a pattern, the C.J.I. told both the law officers.

May be an image of 10 people and text that says "Manipur Video: SC Calls It Grossest Of Constitutional, Human Rights Violation; Asks Centre, State To Act"
