Ethnic conflict and murder grip India’s state of Manipur – BBC News

The state of Manipur in north-east India has been rocked with ethnic violence, in a conflict marked by murder and sexual crimes against women.

The fighting between the majority Meitei and minority Kuki communities has left hundreds of people dead. Neighbours who lived peacefully together are now involved in a bloody conflict over issues including rights to land, jobs and political power.

The state is deeply divided and with claims that India’s government has been slow to step in, civilians are taking matters into their own hands.

Reeta Chakrabarti presents a BBC News at Ten special report by Yogita Limaye in Manipur.
