  1. Supreme Court Accuses Manipur Government of Constitutional Machinery Breakdown

The Supreme Court today launched a scathing attack against the Manipur government over its handling of ethnic violence in the state, accusing it of an absolute breakdown of constitutional machinery for the past two months. Chief Justice of India, DY Chandrachud, leading the bench, criticized the “tardy” and “lethargic” investigation process, highlighting delays in registering FIRs and recording statements. The court demanded the personal presence of the Manipur Director General of Police in the next hearing.

The Opposition has capitalized on the Supreme Court’s remarks, demanding the removal of Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh and the imposition of President’s Rule. Solicitor General Tushar Mehta provided the court with a status report, stating that 6,523 FIRs have been registered, with 11 relating to crimes against women and children. He also mentioned arrests made in connection to a shocking incident of women being paraded naked and gang-raped, but admitted limitations in obtaining information about the policemen involved.

The court expressed dissatisfaction with the sluggish investigation, pointing out discrepancies in FIR dates and raised concerns about the lack of arrests. The Chief Justice stated that the state police had lost control, resulting in an absolute breakdown of constitutional machinery in Manipur. The court ordered the Director General of Police to be present at the next hearing and demanded detailed information on each FIR, emphasizing the need to differentiate serious cases from minor ones. The court even considered the possibility of forming a committee of former high court judges to address the issue.

The entire situation has sparked a parliamentary logjam, with both Houses repeatedly adjourned since the beginning of the monsoon session. The heinous crimes against women have triggered questions about the safety of women across the country, urging the government to take appropriate action. The Manipur government must now address the concerns raised by the Supreme Court and work diligently to restore law and order in the state.
