The Kuki Women Organisation for Human Rights (KWOHR) has expressed deep concerns over the alleged atrocities of Manipur police commandos upon innocent civilians in Manipur’s border town Moreh.
KWOHR president Ngaineikim Haokip said that the organisation is deeply disturbed by the relentless torture of seven arrested civilians from Moreh by the state police commandos. She said that such inhuman torture is unwarranted and is a gross violation of human rights.
“The operation, detention, arrest, and subsequent high-handedness are, therefore, implicit in the open persecution against the Kuki-Zo community”, she maintained.
KWOHR also appealed to all human rights organisations to stand in solidarity against the undue use of force and anti-constitutional means.
