It was rarest of the rare case where many were raped, killed and torture and two pregnant women were force to deliver their baby in front of the Public and Indian soldier in the open play ground. The case was fought in the Indian Supreme Court but the judgment was never delivered till today. Victims are still hoping that they will get the Justice even after 20 years of the Oinam incident. Poumais have seen and witness many hardship yet today they are still the proud sons and daughters of Nagalim. Nagas will always remember the contributions made by the Poumais in the Naga history.
