News from Victims - StateViolations

altNew Delhi: NCHRO is deeply shocked by the judgment delivered by a sessions court in Gadchiroli district, Maharashtra on Tuesday,07-March-2017 sentencing Delhi University Professor GN Saibaba and four others to life imprisonment. The judgment clearly shows that even thoughts can be considered a criminal offence in the country and it an affront to justice.

 

The court says that it is “proved beyond reasonable doubt” that the accused “hatched criminal conspiracy to wage war against the Government of India" and punished them under the draconian Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act. Strangely it also holds that “merely because accused no. 6 Saibaba is 90% disabled is no grounds to show him leniency”.Dr Saibaba is a paraplegic right from school days and he cannot move about without assistance.It is patently clear that Saibaba was convicted to silence him as he has been vehemently opposed to some of the policies of the government especially those dealing with Adivasi land in central India’s mineral-rich corridor.

NCHRO demands judicial probe into Nilambur encounter Killing PDF Print E-mail
News from Victims - StateViolations

altKozhikode, Nov 26, 2016 The National Confederation of Human Rights Organizations (NCHRO) today demanded a judicial probe into killings of two Maoists in a stage managed encounter with police in Nilambur forests in Kerala on November 24. Kuppuswamy alias Devaraj and Ajitha alias Kaveri were killed in an encounter with police in Paduka forest range.

 

NCHRO demanding a judicial inquiry rather than the routine magisterial inquiry by treating it as culpable homicide and issuing an FIR. The country has seen a significant uptick in the number of Fake Encounters. The term “encounter” itself  is a widely understood euphemism for extra-judicial killings. Fake encounters introduce terror as a component of governance and erode its very democratic essence.The way the law and order machinery functions or the overall policing climate, all point towards wanton misuse of power and underprivileged are naturally at the receiving end of injustice and many of them pay with their lives.

 

A faked killing is not an aberration of a few runaway miscreant officers; it is an integral if shadowy element of the system itself, one in which the State eliminates its own people. No one to bypass and sabotage standard operating procedures and regular law-compliant methods, No body can exercise the terrifying power to snuff out human , everybody has to respect the legal foundation on which civilised society is built. Thoughtful leadership and strong civilian oversight would help improve ways to handle use of force in policing.

 

Unfortunately, the truth behind the encounter killing will probably remain elusive, and justice, if due to the victims’ families, will be long in coming.

News from Victims - 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.

Malkangiri and Bhopal Killings NCHRO questions the police story and demands judicial enquiry PDF Print E-mail
News from Victims - 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.
