In this editorial episode, Mr. Sujit Nair sheds light on the Supreme Court’s hearing on the Manipur issue, during which the court made significant decisions and posed crucial questions. Mr. Nair emphasizes the following key points: The Supreme Court questioned the delay in filing FIRs after the incident that occurred on May 4, as a Zero FIR was only filed on May 18. It raised concerns about what the police were doing during the 14-day gap and questioned the justification for the delay in registering the FIR. The court expressed dissatisfaction with the fact that it took until June 21 to transfer the Zero FIR to the relevant police station. It questioned the need for the video to go viral before arrests were made in the case. The court also raised concerns about the high number of FIRs (around 6000) and questioned how many of them were related to crimes against women. It highlighted the lack of data and facts on the number of cases in Manipur. In response to the issue of violence against women, the court proposed setting up a committee of women judges, assisted by civil society, to ensure justice is delivered to the survivors. The court rejected the notion of whataboutery and emphasized that the case in Manipur involved an unprecedented magnitude of violence against women in communal and sectarian clashes. It disapproved of justifying the incident by comparing it to crimes happening elsewhere. The Supreme Court posed six direct questions to the Centre, demanding quick answers: a. Provide a detailed breakdown of all the cases in Manipur. b. Specify the number of Zero FIRs that were filed. c. State how many FIRs have been transferred to jurisdiction police stations. d. Provide the number of people arrested so far. e. Explain the status of legal aid provided to the arrested accused. f. State the number of Section 164 cases recorded thus far. The court expects prompt responses to these questions within one day.
