Manipur Horror Video: DCW chief Swati Maliwal enroute to Imphal

Must read

Delhi, July 23: Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chief Swati Maliwal is travelling to violence-hit Manipur, despite the state government allegedly denying her permission for the visit.

This comes a day after, Swati Maliwal alleged that the Manipur government has refused to let her visit the state to interact with survivors of sexual violence.

Taking to Twitter, Maliwal on Sunday said, “Manipur Govt recommended I consider postponing my visit due to law and order situation. After deliberation on their suggestion, have decided to fly to Imphal as planned. Sought time from Manipur CM. Will meet him & request him to come along to visit the sexual assault survivors,”

DCW Chief also shared a copy of a letter written to the Manipur chief minister on Sunday in which she urged him to facilitate her visit while ensuring that she will not do anything to create problems for the state government.

“I seek an urgent meeting with your hon’ble self to discuss the extremely pertinent issue of the human rights violations and sexual assault cases occurring in Manipur… Several Manipuri women have come to Delhi in order to escape the ongoing violence in the state. I wish to discuss issues regarding their welfare as well with your hon’ble self,” she said in the letter.

“I request you to kindly issue directions to the officers to facilitate my visit. As a fellow citizen of this country and the head of a statutory body protecting women and girls, I appeal to your hon’ble self to aid me in providing help and support to the sisters of Manipur. I assure you that I shall not be doing anything that creates a problem for your government during my visit to the state,” she added.

“I assure you that I shall leave no stone unturned to support the Manipur Government in its mandate to protect the rights and dignity of the women and girls of the state,” she said.

The DCW chief also said that she had written to CM N. Biren Singh on July 20 and then to the chief of Manipur Police on July 21 regarding her visit to the state to interact with survivors of sexual violence.

“A letter dated 21.07.2023 was sent to DM Imphal, who forwarded the same to Joint Secretary (Home) with the request to provide necessary support to the undersigned (Ms Maliwal) and her team. The DM also gave us the contact numbers of the Joint Secretary (Home) who confirmed to us that we can travel to Manipur, and he shall provide the necessary support to us in visiting the relief camps. Subsequently, we planned our travel to Imphal,” Ms Maliwal said in the letter.

“However, suddenly we received an email from the Joint Secretary (Home) requesting us to consider postponing our visit in view of the current law and order situation in Manipur,” she said.

Meanwhile, the Manipur Police has so far arrested five men and apprehended a juvenile in connection with the May 4 parading of two women naked in Kangpokpi district of the state, officials said on Saturday.
