New Delhi: The Supreme Court Thursday ordered the Centre and state government to take immediate action against the incident in Manipur where two women were stripped and paraded.

Chief Justice of India (CJI) DY Chandrachud remarked “We will give a little time for government to take action otherwise we will step in.”

“We are very deeply disturbed about the videos distributed yesterday. We are expressing our deep concern. It is time that the government steps and takes action. This is unacceptable,” said CJI, quoted LiveLaw.

The CJI further stated that using women as an instrument in an area of communal strife to perpetuate gender violence is unacceptable.

Highlighting gross violation of constitution, CJI Chandrachud said, “We are of the view that court must be apprised of the steps taken by the govt so that perpetrators are booked for such violence. What is portrayed in the media and visuals which appeared shows gross constitutional violation.”
