The Supreme Court has urged the creation of a comprehensive mechanism to address violence against women in conflict-ridden Manipur. Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, representing the Centre, informed the Chief Justice-led bench that the government has no objections to the apex court monitoring the investigation into the Manipur violence.

The ongoing hearing involves several petitions concerning the violent incidents in Manipur. Recently, two women, who were shown in a distressing video being paraded naked in Manipur on May 4, filed a petition in the matter, as revealed by senior advocate Kapil Sibal.

Supreme Court supports comprehensive Manipur probe on violence against women. Centre and CBI are involved, seeking justice and accountability.

Expressing deep concern over the video, the apex court on July 20 denounced the use of women as instruments of violence, deeming it unacceptable in a constitutional democracy. The court instructed the Centre and Manipur government to take immediate corrective measures and keep it informed of their actions.

In response to the court's directives, on July 27, the Centre entrusted the CBI with the investigation into the case involving the two women paraded naked. The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) submitted an affidavit, assuring zero tolerance towards crimes against women and requesting the trial's relocation outside Manipur for a timely conclusion. Up until now, the authorities have apprehended seven individuals in relation to the incident.

The strife in Manipur began on May 3 during a 'Tribal Solidarity March' organized in the hill districts, opposing the majority Meitei community's demand for Scheduled Tribe status. This led to numerous fatalities and hundreds of injuries.

The Supreme Court's active involvement in overseeing the investigation brings hope for justice and accountability in addressing violence against women in Manipur.
