A graphic video of two women being sexually abused in public in India’s northeastern state of Manipur has provoked outrage and condemnation. The main suspect in the sexual abuse case, identified as Khuirem Herodas, a Meitei, was arrested on Thursday. He was taken into custody hours after Prime Minister Narendra Modi broke his nearly 80-day silence on the violence in Manipur by condemning the alleged sexual assault as “shameful” and promising tough action.
