The two women forced to parade naked belong to the Kuki-Zomi tribal communityaccording to a statement from the Indigenous Tribal Leaders Forum (ITLF).

Manipur is immersed in a growing wave of violence between tribal groups, which has left 142 dead and more than 60,000 displaced since May. The ITLF warned in a statement of the "atrocities" committed against women, especially in the Kangpokpi district.

Ethnic violence erupted on May 3 when a march of mostly Kuki youth, tribes concentrated mostly in mountainous areas, protested against a court request to classify the majority Meitei, who reside in the valley areas of the state, as “tribal”, a status that would allow them to spread out in the mountains and gain access to government posts.
