Modi condemns the shameful incident in Manipur where a mob paraded women naked

Indian PM Narendra Modi expressed deep shame and anger over a video showing a mob parading two women naked in Manipur, a northeastern state where ethnic violence has resulted in over 120 deaths. The violence erupted in May due to a dispute over access to government jobs and other privileges, and clashes between rival vigilante gangs have caused widespread destruction and displacement. The EU and opposition lawmakers criticized Modi for his initial silence on the unrest, while India’s Supreme Court Chief Justice, DY Chandrachud, called the women’s abuse shown in the video “simply unacceptable.”
