Centre Requests Supreme Court to Transfer Manipur Violence Trial

The Centre has requested the Supreme Court to transfer the trial in the Manipur violence case outside the state. It has also asked the court to ensure the completion of the entire case, including the gang-rape case, within six months. The affidavit, filed by Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla, emphasizes the seriousness with which the Centre is addressing the case.

Central Government and Manipur Government Recommend CBI Probe

The Manipur government recommended a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) probe in the case on July 26. The Home Ministry had also recommended a CBI probe on July 27. The Centre stated that the decision to entrust the investigation to an independent agency like the CBI was taken to ensure justice and act as a deterrent against crimes against women.

Steps Taken to Hold Perpetrators Accountable

The Centre listed the steps taken to hold the perpetrators accountable for the violence in Manipur. It highlighted the arrest of seven individuals in connection with the case, with the most recent arrest taking place on Monday. The Centre’s affidavit emphasizes its commitment to ensuring justice in such heinous crimes.

Supreme Court’s Involvement

The Supreme Court had earlier taken suo motu cognizance of the brutal gang rape in Manipur after a video went viral on social media. However, the scheduled hearing on the pleas regarding violence in Manipur couldn’t take place due to the unavailability of Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud.

Opposition’s Demand for Statement from Prime Minister

The video from Manipur generated uproar in Parliament, with the opposition demanding a statement from Prime Minister Narendra Modi. When no statement was forthcoming, the opposition pushed for a no-confidence motion against the government, which has been accepted by Speaker Om Birla.

Government’s Assurance on Restoring Peace in Manipur

Refuting claims that Manipur is “burning,” a senior government official assured that no killings have occurred in the state since July 18. The government is engaged in talks with the Meiteis and Kukis communities to restore peace and normalcy.
