Written by: Staff

Aizawl, Mar 2 (UNI) The Sinlung Peoples Indigenous Peoples Human Rights Organisation (SIPHRO) today re-appealed to the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) for immediate intervention of the Centre in solving the problems of Hmar refugess.

SIPHRO sources here said in its appeal it has highlighted the deteriorating condition faced by the people of Hmarbiel, Tipaimukh sub-division inhabited by the Hmar tribe.

It appealed the NHRC to direct the state government to immediately airdrop rice, medicines and medical team for the hundreds of 'maimed and tortured villagers, especially for the rape victims whose numbers has crossed 25'.

It stated, ''the government should provide financial assistance, of at least rupees two lakhs for the traumatic rape victims. The Government should also immediately identify and provide aid to the thousands of refugees who are still seeking refuge in Assam, Manipur and Mizoram.'' It also requested the Centre as well as the Government of Manipur to redesign the operational measures if it still has to carry on the ongoing counter-insurgency military operations so that ''innocent civilians'' do not suffer.

It asked to immediately restore peace, governance and security, maintain public distribution system and necessary proactive intervention for the marginalised people, who are also cut off from the state and its policies.
