Now students and activists from the northeast Monday met Delhi Police officials at the Vasant Vihar police station demanding action against a khap panchayat that threatened to evict tenants hailing from the northeastern states.
The Khap panchayat’s decision came a few days after a 14-year-old girl from Manipur was forcibly grabbed and allegedly raped by her landlord’s son in the same area. The incident triggered huge protests from Northeast people.
