IMPHAL, Aug 6 - Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh said a fast-track court has been set up to handle cases of crimes against women in the State.
Replying to a question by Congress MLA AK Mirabai in the State Assembly on Saturday, Singh said despite the poor financial condition of the State Government, it has set up a fast-track court to handle cases of crimes against women.
