Chairperson of the Manipur Women Commission, Dr Ch Jamini on Wednesday charged the state police of not co-operating with the commission in dealing with cases related to rape incidents. Speaking at a press conference held at her office chamber at Lamphel DC Complex, Imphal, Dr Jamini said due to absence of any help in the works of the commission by the state police force, many cases taken up by the commission have come to a halt, said Dr. Ch Jamini. She further stated that out of many cases which came to the commission some cases were easily solved but in some other cases the accused did not show up even after summons which, she said with the help of police the defaulting persons can be caught after issuing warrants. However, Dr Jamini lamented that in such cases the police did not help the commission and instead some police personnel questioned the commission of using police force. She added that in Manipur the commission did not get support from the police unlike the other states in northeast. Dr. Jamini also alleged that the police let out culprits involved in rape cases on bail and stated that many complicated cases including four rape cases were pending due to police non-cooperation. She also alleged that government failed to translate into action the recommendations submitted to the government, stating that the commission made 40 recommendations but not a single recommendation was taken up by the government. In the recent case of rape of a 22-year old handicapped girl in Imphal east district by her relative, the commission registered a suo-motto case and referred to the police for investigation but till date no satisfactory action were initiated to punish the culprits, she alleged. The chairperson also announced that the commission would provide relief amount of Rs two lakh to the rape victims as per the guidelines of the National Women Commission which was adopted in 2005 following the directives of the Supreme Court.
