Manipur Viral Video Case Referred to CBI by Ministry of Home Affairs

The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has decided to refer the Manipur viral video case to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), government sources revealed on Thursday. The case involves a 26-second video that has sparked widespread outrage across the country. The distressing video depicts two women being stripped naked, assaulted, and paraded by a mob in Manipur.

According to ANI sources, the Centre will also submit an affidavit to the Supreme Court, requesting that the trial for the viral video case be conducted outside of Manipur. The incident reportedly occurred on May 4, a day after ethnic clashes erupted in the state.

After the video went viral, the police took prompt action and apprehended seven individuals, including the main suspect. The source also disclosed that the mobile phone used to record the viral video has been recovered, and the person responsible for filming it has also been arrested.

The violence in Manipur stemmed from a rally conducted by the All Tribal Students Union of Manipur (ATSUM) on May 3. The rally was held in protest against the proposed inclusion of individuals belonging to the Meitei community in the list of Scheduled Tribes (STs). The situation escalated, leading to the tragic and disturbing incident captured in the viral video.
