Hundreds of women took to the streets today in Kohima staging a silent protest against the rape of an 80-year-old woman in Jotsoma by two youth – Adu Nakro and Vezhohu Resuh – on October 25. The womenfolk later submitted a memorandum to the Deputy Commissioner Kohima, urging the authorities to book the culprits under appropriate section of IPC and award them the highest penalty. They also appealed that the accused should not be released/granted bail under any circumstances.
The two youth were taken under police custody on Sunday, after they were caught and given a sound thrashing by irate Jotsoma villagers.
