There is an uneasy calm over insurgency-hit Manipur, which has completed a year - 2014 - with the lowest number of killings in clashes between security forces and militant groups. But the peace may be deceptive; it comes after a Supreme Court committee indicted armed forces for a series of fake encounters, leading the forces to disengage. But an informal ceasefire has not led to any movement towards justice for the victims of fake encounters. In fact, our investigation finds continuing attempts to bury the truth and obstruct justice at every level, often using the Armed Forces Special Powers Act. As long as there is no justice, peace in Manipur may be an illusion.
