Manipur Police Files Criminal Case Against Meitei Leepun Chief for Instigating Violence

The Manipur Police have taken legal action against Pramot Singh, the chief of Meitei Leepun, by filing a criminal case against him. The charges include promoting enmity between groups and criminal conspiracy. The case was registered on July 8 at the Kangpokpi police station following a complaint lodged by the Kuki Students Organisation (KSO), Sadar Hills, Kangpokpi.

The KSO accused Pramot Singh and another group named Arambai Tenggol of instigating violence in Manipur. Ethnic tensions between the Meitei and Kuki communities have been escalating since a tribal solidarity march on May 3, which resulted in loss of lives and the displacement of thousands.

The KSO filed a complaint on June 13, and the First Information Report (FIR) was officially registered on July 8. The Manipur Police are currently investigating the matter and gathering evidence.

In response to the ongoing violent conflict, the Association of Meiteis in the Americas (AMA) organized peaceful demonstrations in San Francisco, California, on July 9, and in Austin, Texas, on June 25. Manipuri women dressed in traditional Phanek attire participated in these gatherings, calling for an end to the violence and highlighting the urgent issues hindering rehabilitation and normalcy in Manipur.

The participants urged immediate action to address the crisis and protect the integrity of Manipur, emphasizing the need for disarmament to restore peace.
