India: Wanton killings, violence, and human rights abuses in Manipur

Amnesty International is alarmed at the continued and unabated violence that is taking place between ethnic groups in the North-Eastern state of Manipur, India and the inability of the Indian authorities to protect human rights in the region. Since the start of the ethnic violence on 3 May, more than a 100 people have been killed and scores others injured. More than 50,000 people have been forced to flee. Now displaced from their homes, they are living in relief camps across Manipur and in the neighboring north-eastern states. Scores of houses and property have been burned, looted, vandalized. This has left entire communities terrorized and devastated. The state government has also imposed an internet shutdown since the start of the violence.
