Journalist from Manipur allegedly threatened by neighbours in Delhi, FIR registered
Following a complaint by a journalist alleging that he was harassed and threatened by his neighbours, an FIR was registered in south Delhi's Mehrauli, police said on Monday.
Ronendra Singh Sapam, a native of Manipur, alleged that a meeting was called by his housing society on Sunday over the non-functioning of lift but instead of discussing the matter, his neighbours and some locals pushed and threatened him at the behest of the builder.
On July 25, referring to the impressive performances of weightlifter Mirabai Chanu and boxer Mary Kom at the Tokyo Olympics, Sapam alleged, "On one hand my sisters from Manipur are making India so proud in the #Olympics, here in Delhi we are treated as outsiders!"
