Manipur woman paraded: Swati Maliwal, the chairperson of the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) personally visited the families of women who were victims of sexual abuse and violence during the Manipur violence. Sharing the experience on Twitter, she wrote that she met the families of two daughters from Manipur who had suffered vandalism. One of the victims was married to a soldier who had dutifully protected the borders of the country, yet no one had come to meet him until Swati’s visit. Swati also met with the mother of the other victim.

Expressing her concern, she questioned why the Chief Minister and the rest of the administration had not visited the victims. Swati shared a heartfelt video in the subsequent tweet, featuring her comforting one of the victims with a warm embrace. The emotional scene depicted the profound impact of the violence on the victims and their families.

Swati Maliwal, accompanied by DCW member Vandana Singh, travelled to Churachandpur, Moirang, and Imphal districts in Manipur. During her visit, she interacted with survivors of the violence and visited various relief camps. The mother of one of the victims shared the heartbreaking tale of her father and brother losing their lives while trying to save her during the gang rape incident.

The husband of the woman who was paraded naked and molested had bravely fought in the Kargil war for the country and revealed that the victim was deeply traumatized. The families expressed their frustration at the lack of counselling, legal aid, and compensation from the government, as well as the absence of any action taken against the responsible police officers. Swati assured the victims’ families that they were not alone and that the entire country stood with them during their time of need.

Swati Maliwal also visited relief camps in Manipur, where she met other women affected by the violence. She faced difficulties while trying to enter Manipur without government assistance, but her determination led her to reach out to the victims at any cost. The viral video of the incident deeply moved her, strengthening her resolve to offer support and comfort to the victims.
