The structural violence in Manipur has led to various forms of secondary violence. Gross human rights violations including torture, extra-judicial detention, rape and enforced disappearance have become endemic. The situation in Manipur is a clear case of an "internal disturbance" or non-international armed conflict requiring invocation of Article 355 of the Constitution (Chapter XVIII dealing with emergency powers) and not of a "public order" problem. In such situation both the parties to the conflict should at the minimum follow the common article 3 of the Geneva Conventions and strictly follow the rules of engagement under the relevant international humanitarian laws.
