The incident happened after a misleading picture of a Delhi woman went circulated on social media, falsely claiming her to be woman from the Meiti tribe. Reportedly, the incident is not new but older than a month which occurred on May 4, 2023, but it was heard by the nation only after the gruesome video went viral on July 19, 2023. One of the two women were survived, who during an interview shared her tragedy and told how the false news has brought their misfortune.
Now even the government came to rescue and share the political opinions on the heinous scene. PM Modi stood outside the parliament and shared his grief and nodded, "I am pained, won't spare the guilty." He assured the Indians with a hope of seeking justice but till when women of innocence of the the North East region has to surrender their lives under the country's lending ignorance?
