IMPHAL, December 22: Condemnations continued to pour in from various organizations regarding the Chandel incident in which popular Manipuri film actor Momoko Khangembam was allegedly assaulted.
The All Manipur Women Association (AMAWOVA) has condemned the alleged manner in which NSCN (IM) cadre Livingston physically assaulted the actor brutally while she was comparing at a musical concert jointly organized by Mahamani Youth Club and Mahamani Women Society at the district head quarters in Chandel on Tuesday December 18.
The press release from AMAVOVA said that such an unfortunate incident taking place in front of the state police who could not intervene at all, shows that the Government openly supports NSCN (IM) and defies the respect that is due to women in the society.

Another press release from the Students’ Federation of India (SFI) has also demanded the arrest of Livingston and to punishment immediately.
