Manipur violence: video shows women paraded naked in violence-hit state


A shocking video showing two women being paraded naked and assaulted by a mob has sparked violent protests in India. One of the women filed a police complaint saying she’d been gang raped. It happened early in May in Manipur state – which has been wracked by violence between the Matai and Kuki tribes.

The outrage has forced Prime Minister Narendra Modi to break more than two months of silence over the ethnic clashes. He said the women’s assault had shamed India.

A warning – you may find some of the images coming up upsetting.
