The Nongchup Imphal Palem Ima Apunba Lup (NIMPAL) on Thursday demanded capital punishment to the father who allegedly raped her own minor daughter in Thoubal district.
In a press conference at NIMPAL office in Uripok, Imphal West, its secretary S Shanti Leima strongly condemned the alleged rape, following which the victim succumbed after consuming poison.
She said when such hideous crimes are happening in the state, every mother feels unsafe in leaving their daughters alone even in their own houses.
Awarding capital punishment to all the rapists as an exemplary punishment is the need of the hour to prevent any crime against women from occurring in the future, she added.
The secretary also declared to full support the JAC of Thoubal against rape in their stir until the accused is awarded capital punishment.
