Talking to the reporters, the DDUDF Kurseong convenor Usha Kiran Rai informed her organisation has sent letters to the National Commsion for Women, in Delhi and State Human Rights Commission, Manipur, demanding speedy judicial inquiry in the recent incident that occurred in Manipur, in which a Gorkha girl aged 13 years was raped by a 74 years old tribal person named S.

Following the incident, Gorkhas in Imphal took out a protest rally in which two people were killed in firing by the Manipur Police. The DDUDF has strongly condemned the heinous act and atrocities committed by the Manipur police as well as on the role played by administration of Manipur.
