Manipur killings: Seeking justice for hundreds of ‘unlawful deaths’

306

Human rights activists in India – on behalf of the country’s Supreme Court – are investigating more than 1,500 alleged unlawful killings.

Last year the court took the unprecedented step of empowering civilian investigators in the north-eastern state of Manipur where the Indian army and police have been fighting an insurgency for four decades.

Later this month the judges are expected to order a full investigation based on the activists’ findings which could lead to prosecutions.
