According to press release, the arbitrary/compromise settlement made outside court on February 27 last at Zeliangrong Union Office, Kakhulong, Paona Bazar Imphal is sub judicial and unfair.

It is further said that the Prevention of Child Sexual Offence Act under Section 177 etc prescribes punishment against such persons who disrupt any process of law against the perpetrators of crimes against women and children. The compromised deal also misled Chiuliangpou Panmei, rifleman of 5 MR and the victim`s father and added that he has become a party to the crime.
It is an appeal to all NGOs, civil society, Child Welfare Committee, Tamenglong and all the right seeking people to condemn and take appropriate action against such incident which indirectly supported and encouraged the crimes against women and children, it added.
