Respect human rights in Manipur

Amid an eerie silence over the recent orgy of Churachandpur violence the Amnesty International India has asked the Manipur government to respect human rights.   

The rights body further asked the government to carry out an independent probe into the allegations of human rights violations in the past few months. The excessive use of police force should also be brought under the probe.

The rights body observed that the government should ensure that they respect the right to freedom of expression and peaceful protest while maintaining public order and safety.
