CJI says on the formation of a committee there are two ways- we constitute a committee ourselves- a party of women and male judges and domain experts. This is not in terms of just trying to figure out what has happened but we also need to rebuild lives.

Manipur Viral video case: SC questions why FIR was registered on May 18 when the incident happened on May 4

Supreme Court questioned why the FIR was registered on May 18 when the incident happened on May 4. What were the police doing from May 4 to May 18? The incident came to light that women are being paraded naked and at least two were raped. What were the police doing? SC has termed offence against women 'horrendous' and said it does not want case to be handled by Manipur police. The top court called for evolving broad mechanism to deal with violence against women in strife-torn Manipur. SC said it will hear both sides briefly and will then take a call on the correct course of action. We do not have an evidentiary record now. Let us hear the petitioners and then come back to Attorney General and Solicitor General. Senior advocate Kapil Sibal, appearing for the two victim women, told SC that it is clear that police were collaborating with those who perpetrated the violence against the two women and police took these women to the crowd and abandoned them and the crowd did what they did.
