 ‘Arrest is just face-saver’: Shiv Sena (UBT) MP Priyanka Chaturvedi on Manipur issue

Raising questions over Police action in the nearly three-month-old video of two women being paraded naked by a mob in Manipur, Shiv Sena (UBT) MP, Priyanka Chaturvedi, on Friday said that the arrests in this case is just a "face-saver to show that there exists a law and order".

She also said that the police are taking action only after the video went viral and not after an FIR was lodged in the matter on May 18.

"The FIR was lodged on May 18 and it was a zero FIR. I'm sure that the police had this video but, from May 18 till this date, we are sitting idle without taking any action on it. Now they have taken action because the video has been leaked and got viral," Shiv Sena (UBT) leader said.

She said, "Biren Singh himself stated yesterday that around 100 FIRs similar to this have been registered so far... what about the other 100 women and their FIRs?"

"Now the arrest, in this case, is just a face-saver to show that there exists a law and order," Chaturvedi said. (ANI)
