New Delhi, January 23, 2012
Delhi Police has failed to nab the rapist of 20-years-old Manipuri girl. A delegation led by General Secretary of National Alliance for Women Jarjum Ete, who is former Chairperson of Arunachal Pradesh State Commission for Women will Meet National Commission for Women on Monday, January 23, 2012.
20-year-old Manipuri student working at a spa centre, was raped in Dwarka on Wednesday night by a man who offered her a lift back home. The victim hailed from Churachandpur in Manipur.
In a press release the delegation stated that the North East community has lost faith in police official who are handling the rape cast of young Manipuri girl on January 18th night at Dwarka, New Delhi. The delegation will consist of four members – Jarjum Ete, June Rose Vaiphei – member of Manipur State Commission for Women and General Secretary of Manipur Pradesh Mahila Congress Committee, and North East Support Centre & Helpline’s Spokesperson Madhu Chandra and Secretary Rev. Ambika Hongsha.
The North East communities are disappointed at half hearted attitude of law enforcing agencies to protect the North East communities in Delhi and NCR. The reluctance and delay in taking action whenever crimes take place against North East communities, the culprits and perpetrators run away without being arrested and punished. If this continues, then the crimes against North East communities in Delhi and NCR will never cease. The North East communities seek the equal treatment in the front of law from law enforcing agencies as equal citizens of the nation.
According to two studies conducted in 2008 by the North East Support Centre, 50% of the molestation and harassment cases in the national capital involve girls from the northeast region of India.
Meanwhile, the Chief Minister of Delhi, Sheila Dixit has ones again blamed migration and ‘criss-crossing’ of people in the the city from Punjab and Uttar Pradesh for the increasing crime-rate and crime against women.
