IMPHAL, FEBRUARY 9

Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) Manipur staged a protest against the increasing Crimes on North-eastern student in Delhi at Nagamapal Traffic Point in Imphal today.Speaking to the media on the sideline of the protest, Secretary of ABVP, Narendra Sapam said that Delhi has been always a capital for crime particularly on northeast students. He maintained that the NE students studying in various colleges in the national capital region have been suffering a lot due to the regular crimes.
Recently a series of crimes took place in New Delhi which needs to be addressed by the concerned authorities. A student from Arunachal Pradesh was brutally beaten to death which was followed by physical assault on two Manipuri girls on Friday. Another incident of raping a 14 year old girl by the landlord’s son at Murnika in south Delhi on February 8 is nothing but a pure case of racial discrimination, Narendra observed.
Such kind of incidents forced the people of the Northeastern to start thinking whether they are citizens of the country or not. “If yes, why the people from the Northeast have been continuously discriminated,” he questioned.
He further opined that such incidents not only create a sense of alienation from the mainland India besides making the young minds angry.
He also alleged that both the state and the central government is not doing enough to book the culprits involved in such crimes to stop such acts in future.
The state government also should take responsibility for such kind of unwanted incidents reported in the national capital as the state authority need to pressurize the concerned government in New Delhi to take immediate action against the culprits, he added.
ABVP Manipur unit functionary Narendra also strongly condemned the unfortunate incidents that had happened in New Delhi in recent past and urged to take up necessary steps to punish the accused and ensure the safety of northeast students in the near future.
