Rajkhowa Commission elicit little response
Imphal, Apr 4 (UNI) The Justice Rajkhowa Commission formed to inquire into the alleged rape of 21 women at Churachandpur district and molestation and torture of M Naobi by Thoubal police has received only an affidavit on the rape issue.
The Commission was waiting for submission of statements till yesterday on the two cases. On the Naobi molestation case, none has submitted any statement.
The affidavit on the rape case was filed by Human Rights Alert (HRA) based on the findings of a spot inquiry done with other organisations like Hmar Students' Association, Human Rights Law Network and Rongmei Lu Phuam. The alleged victims live in different villages of Churachandpur of Manipur and in Mizoram.
Some women organisations have suggested that the statement of the victims be taken at Churachandpur district. On Naobi's molestation case, most organisations have pointed out the ineffectiveness of the inquiry Commission, saying earlier inquiries did not yield results.
