SC slams whataboutery

New Delhi: While hearing a plea regarding viral video of women being paraded naked in Manipur, CJI DY Chandrachud on Monday observed that it was not the only instance of sexual violence against women since ethnic violence erupted in the northeastern state over 2 months ago. The SC refused to consider a plea on similar alleged incidents in opposition-ruled states, such as West Bengal, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and Kerala.

Supreme Court during hearing calls for evolving broad mechanism to deal with violence against women in strife-torn Manipur. On a request from the lawyer for the two victims, who argued that the women should have confidence in the investigation, the government said it had no objection if the Supreme Court monitored the investigation in the case.
