On October 5, Bablu Lithongbam’s house was attacked by a violent mob. UNHR blamed Meitai Lipuns and Arambai Tengol as being behind the incident. Also demanded from the authorities to provide security to Bablu Lithongbam, his family and house.

Human rights activist Bablu Lithongbam has been critical of Meitei fundamentalist organizations Meitei Lipuns and Arambai Tengol. Meitei Lipuns had announced to boycott Bablu Lithongbam and Brinda Thounaojam in a press release on 5 October.

Bablu Lithongbam had said before the attack that the more I am speaking openly, it seems that fundamentalist organizations will attack my house also.
