The Women Action for Development (WAD) on Friday reached out to Kangpokpi district as a part of the ongoing International Fortnight Day observation, protesting violence against women.
Observing the fortnight since November 25, WAD has been on a fact-finding mission at G Gelbung village of Kangpokpi district where a husband reportedly killed his wife and daughter by interacting with family members.
On December 4, the bodies of Tingbam Haokip and her daughter, Neichingthem Haokip, who were allegedly beaten to death by one Holkhomang Haokip on the intervening night of November 2 and 3, have been claimed by the families after post mortem examinations conducted at JNIMS.
From findings, the accused attempted suicide two years ago when the family faced financial problem. And after he was sent to jail, the family was left with three children.
According to the interaction with families and relatives, no one from the official side, who are the authority of children, are yet to visit them.
WAD secretary Sobita Mangsatabam said that every year the International Fortnight Day Observation is being organised and during the days, WAD goes for fact findings on crimes against women and girls to find out the cause of the crimes.
"Cause is important in solving crime against women in the state and the recommendations, suggestions can help the state government or authorities concerned to solve the issues," she said.
She also stated that the increasing numbers of crime against women and girls should not be taken lightly as it affects the state's development as well as the women community.
