News from Victims - Minorities

altSheopur (Madhya Pradesh) : “The administration is the only responsible for the communal tension occurred last days, for holding RSS shakha in the city”, human rights organization NCHRO alleged through a press conference. Fact finding team member,Dr Kalpana Chittorgarh, Joint Secretary, NCHRO Rajasthan said that if the administration wanted it could control the situation by bringing the two groups to compromise, but it made the situation tenser by taking partial actions.Police failures to deal effectively with communal tension arise mainly from their own inadequacies and also from unabashed politics at the local level.  One of the team members Ansar Indori said that calling no meeting of Peace Committee even days after the incident took place, proves that the administration did not intend to end the tension from the region. On the other hand the actions taken by the administration till now were totally partial. The police took immediate actions on the FIR filed by the Hindu organizations and put persons belonging to the Muslim community behind bars after arresting them. Maintenance of public order is a sovereign function of the state  administrative machinery has become so highly politicised that it is rendered incapable of carrying out basic sovereign functions.

NCHRO calls for immediate release of Professor GN Saibaba. PDF Print E-mail
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.
