The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) said on Saturday that they had filed a FIR in connection with the viral video of two young tribal women being paraded naked by a mob in Manipur.
According to a top CBI official, the complaint was filed late Friday night.
The case has been handed to the CBI by the Manipur administration and the Union Ministry of Home Affairs for further investigation.
The Manipur Police have detained seven people in connection with the incident.
Despite the fact that the encounter occurred on May 4, a day after widespread ethnic violence erupted in Manipur, the video became viral this month.
