StateViolations

NCHRO  strongly condemns the Bastar police for foisting false murder cases against eminent intellectuals and HR activists like Delhi University sociology professor Nandini Sunder and others.  It is said that armed Maoists killed one Shamnath Baghel with sharp weapons last Friday at his home in Nama village in Tongpal area in Chhattisgarh. It is also said that this Baghel is a police agent and was spearheading a movement against Maoists. Now the Bastar range inspector general of police  SRP Kalluri has claimed that an FIR was lodged on Saturday against Sunder, JNU professor Archana Prasad, Vineet Tiwari, who is with Delhi’s Joshi Adhikar Sansthan, Chhattisgarh CPI (Marxist) secretary Sanjay Parate and some other Maoists on the basis of a complaint by Baghel’s wife.

StateViolations

New Delhi: NCHRO strongly condemns the encounter killing of 39 leaders of members CPI (Maoist) in Malkangiri Andhra-Odisha border on 24th October of as well the eight Muslim under trial prisoners at Eintkhedi village near Bhopal on Monday morning. Both were cold blooded murder brutally implemented by security forces. There are glaring contradictions between the statements issued by the Madhya Pradesh Home Minister Bhupendra Singh and the DIG Bhopal Raman Singh. The video clipping shot by the sarpanch of the Acharpura village and released by a channel also confirms our doubt.  The police are seen in that video; shoot at an unarmed man at close range. Bhopal Central Prison is said to be one of the high security prisons in India. We don’t know how these eight under trials, said to be members of a banned organization escaped so easily after killing a jail guard. The DIG also says without any hesitation that all these eight people escaped by jumping out of the high walls of the prison compound without notice even though there was 24 hour cc surveillance. All these make anybody to doubt that the whole story is concocted.

August 18, 2016, New Delhi:

alt NCHRO demanded that the authorities must immediately drop all charges against Amnesty India, It is not a crime assembly and report human rights violations. The FIR against Amnesty India is indicative of the shrinking human rights space in the country and authorities must immediately drop all charges against Amnesty and stop intimidating dissenting voices. The true injustice is that human rights organization is  being punished for reporting on torture, extra judicial killings and forced disappearances.

StateViolations

19/09/2016 The NCHRO  have issued a statement expressing serious concerns over the arrest and arbitrary detention of human rights activist , Khurram Parvez  as  Government continue to silence criticism of the state.

Khurram Parvez, 39, is a well-known activist, outspoken on a range of issues,  is the program coordinator for the Coalition of Civil Society Organisation. He was arrested from his home on 15-Sep-2016, Thursday, one day after he prevented from boarding a plane to the Geneva to attend the ongoing session of the United Nations Human Rights Commission (UNHRC).

The Indian Express reported that the authorities allowed Parvez's colleagues, Parvez Imroz and Kartik Murukutla, to travel to Geneva.  Sections 107 and 151 of the Code of Criminal Procedure allow the government to take a person into custody.

NCHRO condemns his arrest and calls for all charges against him to be dropped.  Freedom of opinion, expression, and assembly are basic rights protected by international treaties to which our country is party. The authorities to release the activist immediately, stop targeting government critics who seek to express dissenting views.

This arrest demonstrates a clear attempt to silence human rights advocacy and deter activists from exposing ongoing violations. NCHRO believes No peaceful activist should be facing prison particularly those who promote and protect human rights through peaceful and non-violent means.

altApril 10,  New Delhi :- Prof P Koya, the General Secretary and Mr Reny Ayline  the Secretary visited Prof S A R Gilani in New Delhi at his residence. Prof Gilani  arrested in a case of sedition, was released from Tihar jail  in March.

NCHRO demanded  Geelani's release while he was arrested and demanded that sedition charges should be dropped against him and he should be allowed to rejoin duty. It seems the  “colonial” sedition law under which he has been charged was being “misused to suppress dissent” and should be scrapped. “Supreme Court had clearly laid down the parameters of applicability of the sedition law and had held time and again that peaceful discussions and expression of views cannot attract charges of sedition.
