Editorial : SOS - APPEAL TO H.E.HONOURABLE PRESIDENT OF INDIA & HONOURABLE CHIEF JUSTICE OF INDIA
- Vested Interests , Criminals silencing a journalist
Even after 62 years of india's independence , the plight of commonman has worsened. Corrupt public servants , corrupt judges , corrupt police , etc are proving to be parasites leading 5-star lifestyles at taxpayer's expense. They in their greed for money , bribe are aiding & abetting terrorists , separatists , naxalites, underworld mafia , etc covertly & overtly , backstabbing our motherland.
These corrupt public servants are more cruel than Jalianwallah Bagh butcher General Dyer of british army. If Mahatma Gandhi was alive today , he would have been disgusted with the present way of democratic government , functioning of public servants & would have died heart broken. If our freedom martyrs like sri.Bhagath Singh or Sri. Madan Lal Dingra or Sri.Subhash Chandra Bose would have been alive , they would have given a befitting reply to this corrupt police , corrupt judges , public servants.
Whenever , a commonman raises his voice for justice , he is silenced in various ways by the criminal nexus. The said criminal nexus has previously tried to silence me in many ways including attempts to murder , closure of newspaper , etc , now the same criminal nexus is at it again. They are trying to silence me , to close my newspaper , to foist false cases against me , all for asking the following QUESTIONS , which public servants are afraid to answer. Even if they succeed in silencing me , TRUTH NEVER DIES, THE COMPLICITY OF HIGHEST CONSTITUTIONAL FUNCTIONARIES IN COVERING-UP , HIDING CRIMES IS FOR ALL THERE TO SEE. If Anything untoward happens to me or my family members , both of you H.E.Honourable President of India & Honourable chief Justice of India will be responsible , accountable for that. If police or other law enforcing agencies , ask me- the complainant , to come over to police station repeatedly for inquiry ( as they did previously) instead of asking the accused high & mighty persons , to come over to police station at least once , the police , the court & the government is liable to pay me damages .
In India corruption has spread it's tentacles far & wide. Corrupt few among judiciary are selling judicial orders , police are fixing innocents letting off the rich criminals , manipulating evidences , people's representatives are taking money even for asking questions in parliament , for releasing money under MPLAD scheme , etc. many of the public servants are selling their official duties for some consideration. These greedy corrupt public servants are worse than street side prostitutes who sell off their own body for a living. However the corrupt public servants who take hefty pay & perks from the government sell off their official duties , their ethics , honesty , in their greed for more money.There are even worse corrupt parasites , police who even take commission from these hapless street side prostitutes.
Take two recent examples , in mysore a little kid of a villager was not properly attended to for nearly 15 days by any doctor in government K.R.Hospital , just for the reason that villager was unable to pay bribe. Finally the kid died in the hospital. Even in ESIC Hospital , mysore although the services are paid by employees by monthly contribution , services are dismal . almost every official in ESIC Mysore demand bribe for consultation , medical test , issue of medicines , bill reimbursement , etc.
Now , take another example how the flyover collapsed in delhi or 15 storey building collapsed in Bangalore. Still mystery shrouds , cover up is taking place with respect to this building collapse. Is it not due to the failure of town planning authorities like BDA , BBMP, etc ? there is complete mystery regarding the casualties of this building collapse , what labour commissioner is doing ? even in mysore , at Infosys construction project site many casualties have taken place , but not properly recoreded by authorities , why ?
Now , the hard fact is that if one has money he can do anything & get away . at this juncture , disillusioned with the corrupt government system , the educated unemployed or victimized youths become a fertile ground for raising of anti social movements like naxalism , mafia or separatist movements , religious fundamentalists , etc. this has already happened in India.
This is an open appeal to your excellency & the honest few in public service , to check this growth & to take India towards Mahatma's swaraj. The public servants mentioned in the following articles are shielding corrupt criminals , by refusing to answer questions , will you make them cough up TRUTH IN FULL ? e-voice has appealed to authorites offering services in apprehending tax thieves & other criminals , but public servants are not interested to utilize our services lest their criminal pals are get caught ? ARE YOU READY TO CATCH TAX THIEVES & OTHER CRIMINALS BY TAKING OUR SERVICES ?
Bihar type mob justice cases will become more frequent leading to anarchy , rise of naxalism , terrorism & underworld in india. The cause for all this CORRUPT PUBLIC SERVANTS in India. When common people don't get justice by police , by courts of law , rich mighty criminals get away from punishment & people's representatives in parliament / state legislatures legalizes the crimes of their rich friends , criminals , anti nationals , the justice becomes a mirage to common man , democracy a farce. Just consider following examples , PMO official leaks out nuclear secrets to enemy countries endangering the security of India , a government official gives driving license , ration card , voter identity card to a Pakistani terrorist , a police official issues gun license to anti national Terrorist , a police official applies 3rd degree torture to a poor innocent to cover up rich criminal , a police official murders a poor innocent in lock-up , fake encounter to cover up rich criminal , a judge issues bail , other judicial orders for a price to anti national , a police officer destroys evidence , delays investigation to aid rich criminal , etc , all these public servants are least bothered about either the well being / security of our motherland India or our countrymen . they are concerned only about the kick backs they get . even higher officials , courts are not taking any action against such corrupt anti national officials , why ? In these circumstances , the aggrieved mass of people to protect the security of our motherland India ,to uphold law , to protect themselves , in exercise of their CONSTITUTIONALLY ENSHRINED FUNDAMENTAL DUTIES ( ie to uphold constitution of India , to protect the unity , integrity of the country , to protect the rights of fellow country men ) eliminate , kill such CORRUPT ANTI NATIONAL PUBLIC SERVANTS when all the avenues for seeking justice have failed , is it not justified in the interest of country ? Do remember that hard liners among our independence struggle like shri . subash Chandra bose , shri. Bhagath singh & others have contributed to our independence struggle immensely. However their actions at that point of time as per then prevailing laws of britishers were termed as illegal , although it did good to our motherland & our countrymen. However in democracy this should not happen as this violence leads to anarchy , more violence. this anarchy can be controlled only by the corrupt public servants , whose making it is . they must mend their corrupt practices , must strictly work for the welfare of our motherland , the courts must punish the corrupt public servants severely. Then alone bapuji's true swaraj can be built. The sad fact is that instead of mending their ways , the corrupt public servants have increased their personal security & taking more and more kick backs. God only must protect them from dog's death at the hands of mass of people. We at e-Voice for Justice believes in equitable justice , peace & non violence and hereby only analyzing the causes for bihar type mob violences , rise of naxalism , terrorism , under world in India. Our analysis is a social pointer to the things to come in near future , in India , ways to protect democracy in India. In the democratic india , whenever a citizen suffers from injustice , violation of constitutionally guaranteed fundamental rights / human rights he can appeal to the higher Authorities for justice , then to the next higher authority in the hierarchy . if it fails he can approach the police , courts of justice. Finally he can appeal to the first citizen of the country & supreme court of india . Now , corruption is more prevalent in police & judiciary. To my numerous appeals for justice , e-voice's appeals for justice concerning public good , the public servants have failed to perform , the police have taken biased action & finally H.E.PRESIDENT OF INDIA , HONOURABLE CHIEF JUSTICE OF INDIA are mum. They have failed to perform their constitutional duties. All the doors of justice are closed for me. e-voice has brought to the notice of government cases of rights violations , crimes , tax evasions by public servants & corporate bodies , it also offerred it's services in apprehending corporate criminals stealing crores of tax money. there was no response . the police & authorities are keen , over zealous in apprehending & prosecuting a pick-pcketer stealing Rs.10 , where as it cover-ups the crimes of corporate criminals stealing lakhs , crores of tax money. the government even rewards such corporate criminals with tax exemptions , subsidies , etc. Is it equitable justice ? true democracy of mahatma's vision ? This type of corrupt administration in india since independence has made the lives of commoners miserable and is the main driving force for the rise of NAXALISM , TERRORISM / SEPARATIST MOVEMENTS & UNDER WORLD. However violence is not the solution, violence breeds more violence & mahatma's democracy true swaraj cann't be set up on the basis of violence.
When all the doors of justice are closed for a commonman ( sufferer of gross injustices ) without financial might or contacts , he has the following options : 1. to take law into his own hands & settle scores. But it is illegal although naturally justified . 2. to suffer more & more injustices reconciling to the fact , ground reality that democracy in india is fake only a facade. 3. To committ suicide to runaway from all injustices. But that is illegal & cowardice. 4. To spread awareness among public about corruption in police , judiciary , public service & to kindle the light of crusade in them within legal democratic frame work although presently sufferring from gross injustices. All in the hope that tommorrow will be bright & sunny , with the dawn of mahatma gandhi's swaraj , as clearly told by poet Ravindranath Tagore and bow our heads to our great motherland India. Your excellency , kindly tell me – tell the common people which way to take . JAI HIND . VANDE MATARAM. Your's sincerely, Nagaraj.M.R.
Crimes of Chief Justice of Supreme Court Of India , Union Home Secretary & Director-General of Police for Karnataka - RTI Act violations , constitutional rights & Human rights violations
The above stated public servants have failed to provide full information to us ie e – voice as per RTI Act , thereby covering up the criminals. The requested informations were no state secrets , no defense secrets but the accountability of above stated public offices. The information was requested for public welfare , to secure equitable justice to public , to stop corrupt practices in public service , in exercise of my FUNDAMENTAL DUTY as a citizen of India. However the above stated public servants preferred to violate law themselves & to protect the criminals. The public servants & the government must be role models in law abiding acts , for others to emulate & follow. if a student makes a mistake it is excusable & can be corrected by the teacher. if the teacher himself makes a mistake , all his students will do the same mistake. if a thief steals , he can be caught , legally punished & reformed . if a police himself commits crime , many thieves go scot-free under his patronage. even if a police , public servant commits a crime , he can be legally prosecuted & justice can be sought by the aggrieved.
just think , if a judge himself that too apex court of the land itself commits crime - violations of RTI Act , constitutional rights & human rights of public and obstructs the public from performing their constitutional fundamental duties , what happens ?
it gives a booster dose to the rich & mighty , those in power , criminals in public service to commit more crimes. that is exactly what is happening in india. the educated public must raise to the occasion & peacefully , democratically must oppose this criminalization of judiciary , public service. then alone , we can build a RAM RAJYA OF MAHATMA GANDHI'S DREAM.
POLICE COMPLAINT AGAINST PUBLIC SERVANTS
NAGARAJ.M.R. LIG-2 / 761, HUDCO FIRST STAGE, LAXMIKANTANGAR, HEBBAL, MYSORE - 570017. Through,
Honourable DG & IG of Police , State Police H.Q , Bangalore.
To, Honourable Circle Inspector of Police, Vijayanagar Police Station, Mysore. Honourable Sir, Subject : Violation of FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS & HUMAN RIGHTS by Honourable Chief Jusice of India & H.E.Honourable President of India & other public servants In India , as per constitution of india all citizens are equal , have right to equal oppurtunity & equitable justice irrespective of caste , creed , religion , etc. the constitution has guaranteed these to every indian citizen by way of CONSTITUTIONAL FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS. Also , everyhumanbeing on earth has got HUMAN RIGHTS, by virtue of his / her birth.
However in india , CONSTITUTIONAL FUNCTIONARIES / PUBLIC SERVANTS have forgotten this & are acting as lords , autocrats - unquestionable public masters. CONSTITUTIONAL FUNCTIONARIES are PUBLIC SERVANTS appointed to serve the public, public are the kings of democracy , they are the taxpayers & paymasters of this very same public servants.
In India , corruption has spread it's tentacles far & wide , it has not even spared the judiciary. The last resort of commonman for seeking justice is judiciary , even there corruption has spread.In present day India , if one is rich , he can committ any type of crime & get away clean from courts of law. there are corrupt police officials who modify FIR , suppress evidences ,manipulate evidences , takes up different line of investigation , fix innocents , coughs-up false confessions from innocents by 3rd degree torture , file B report closing the case , decides not to appeal in higher court of law , etc , ALL FOR A PRICE. Just see the list of millionnaire police officials who are caught by karnataka lokayukta.
Next step , the prosecutor & defense advocate strikes a deal , manipulates evidences , manipulates way of presentation of case & way of argument favouring the rich crooks for a price , as observed in high profile BMW case involving public prosecutor IU KHAN & defense counsel RK ANAND. In this way , if corrupt police & advocates , together manipulate the due process of law , the presiding judge is left high & dry eventhough the judge is honest, he is left helpless. to add to this , when the judge himself is corrupt , people's last hope , democracy is dead. Nowadays we are hearing too many reports of irregularities in judiciary.
our publication has filed many appeals as PUBLIC INTEREST LITIGATION before hon'ble supreme court of india, but the vested interests there are not accepting it as PILs. WHAT DOES PUBLIC INTEREST LITIGATION MEANS ? ISSUES WHICH ARE OF PUBLIC CONCERN AFFECTING MANY NUMBER OF PUBLICS. The issues raised by us for sample :
1. sale of fake medicines & adulterated food products , beverages , colas affecting the health of millions of indians & public of importing nations who are importing the same dangerous products from india .
2. demolition , eviction of houses , lands belonging to poor dalits , tribals , backward castes by Government authorities whereas regularising illegal land encroachments , illegal buildings by high & mighty people in total disregard to law. in some cases government has even made contempt of court , by defying court orders & enacting special laws all to favour rich land grabbers.
3. take the cases corporate frauds, violation of labour laws , pollution board laws , tax laws , etc by companies.
4. The reports in media about certain highly placed public servants leaking india's defense secrets to foreign countries & some politicians , film stars attending parties hosted by anti nationals DAWOOD IBRAHIM & underworld dons in gulf countries & elsewhere. these type of appeals are for public good , national security , as public are affected by them. still supreme court of india is not considering our repeated PIL Appeals.the courts have the authority to consider even a post card , e-mail as a PIL Appeal , the courts even have the right to initiate suo-motto action for public good , inspite of absence of any appeals / complaints.
over & above this at the time of my very first appeal my income was very low & i was a retrenched factory employee who was eligible for free legal aid, even free legal aid was not given to me. Now , even to my repeated RTI Appeals the Honourable chief justice of India & H.E.Honourable President of India are not giving the requested information . these action of CJI & PRESIDENT OF INDIA is aiding high & mighty criminals , anti nationals , amounts to suppression of information , truth , evidences , which is a cognizable offence.

We do have highest respect for all constitutional bodies , public servants , but it is an appeal to the honest few in public service ,to bring to book their corrupt colleagues.The Honourable Chief Justice of India & H.E.Honourable President of India have violated their oaths of office , failed in their Constitutional duties , suppressed material truths / informations & thereby repeatedly violated my Constitutionally guaranteed FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS & BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS & Obstructing me from performing constitutionally prescribed FUNDAMENTAL DUTIES AS A CITIZEN OF INDIA.
Hereby , i do request you to legally prosecute the below mentioned public servants viz
1. H.E.Honourable President of India 2. Honourable Chief Justice Of India 3. Union Home Secretary , GOI 4. Governor , Reserve Bank Of India 5. Director-General & Inspector General Of Police , government of karnataka 6. Commissioner , Bangalore Development Authority 7. Commissioner , Mysore Urban Development Authority 8. Commissioner , Mysore City Corporation 9. Labour Commissioner , government of karnataka and 10. all public servants belonging to tax dept , pollution control board , etc mentioned in the above cases with web links.
on the above mentioned charges. the whole issue of this news paper & the related materials at the weblinks provided, forms part of this complaint. If i am repeatedly called to police station or else where for the sake of investigations , the losses i do incurr as a result like loss of wages , transportation , job , etc must be borne by the government. prevoiusly the police / IB personnel repeatedly called me the complainant (sufferer of injustices) to police station for questioning , but never called the guilty culprits even once to police station for questioning , as the culprits are high & mighty . this type of one sided questioning must not be done by police or investigating agencies . if anything untoward happens to me or to my family members like loss of job , meeting with hit & run accidents , loss of lives , etc , the jurisdictional police together with above mentioned accussed public servants will be responsible for it. Even if criminal nexus levels fake charges , police file fake cases against me or my dependents to silence me , this complaint is & will be effective.
if anything untoward happens to me or my dependents , the government of india is liable to pay Rs. one crore as compensation to survivors of my family. if my whole family is eliminated by the criminal nexus , then that compensation money must be donated to Indian Army Welfare Fund. afterwards , the money must be recovered by GOI as land arrears from the salary , pension , property , etc of guilty police officials , public servants & Constitutional fuctionaries. Thanking you. Jai Hind , Vande Mataram. Date : 04.07.09……………………………………………………………. your's sincerely, Place : Mysore…………………………………………………………….. nagaraj.m.r.

UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS
On December 10, 1948 the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted and proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights the full text of which appears in the following pages. Following this historic act the Assembly called upon all Member countries to publicize the text of the Declaration and "to cause it to be disseminated, displayed, read and expounded principally in schools and other educational institutions, without distinction based on the political status of countries or territories."
Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world,
Whereas disregard and contempt for human rights have resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind, and the advent of a world in which human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief and freedom from fear and want has been proclaimed as the highest aspiration of the common people,
Whereas it is essential, if man is not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression, that human rights should be protected by the rule of law,

Police officers of Bagdana station All residing at Karmadiya village As well as the other involved members of the non-Dalit community at Karmadiya Village Date of incident: 19 to 24 April 2009 Place of incident: Karmadiya Village, Mahuva, Bhavnagar District I am writing to express my concern about a case of caste-based discrimination against and social boycotting of a Dalit community, as reported from Karmadiya Village, Mahuva, Bhavnagar District. I am informed by Navsarjan, a human rights NGO based in Gujarat, that the entire non-Dalit community in the village is behind the incident. A social boycott was allegedly put into place after Dalits tried to file charges against three non-Dalits for trespassing onto their burial grounds and stealing soil, causing approximately Rs 50,000 worth of damage. The Dalits were banned from economic or social interaction with non-Dalits and any non-Dalit that breaks the boycott will allegedly be fined 5000 rupees by the wider community. Dalits were told that their legs would be broken if they used public roads. I am also concerned about the way in which the police handled the case. Officers at Bagdana station initially refused to register a First Information Report (FIR). They finally registered the FIR at 1am on April 24 police after hours of pressure from Dalit activists. The FIR was not written as dictated by the complainants and relevant information was omitted. But most importantly, the social boycott has not been officially recognised by the Social Welfare Department, and so no attempts towards relief, compensation and rehabilitation have been made by the government. These incidents are clearly in violation of not only the Dalit people’s fundamental human rights, but also of the Scheduled Castes/Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act (1989), the Protection of Civil Rights Act (1955) and the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (1966), ratified by India in 1968. As was highlighted by the United Nations Committee on Elimination of Racial Discrimination’s report on India in 2007, the practice of Untouchability continues largely unfettered. I therefore request that: 1. An investigation be ordered into the social boycott practiced against the victims in Karmadiya village by the Social Welfare Office, and the findings made public; 2. If the allegations are true, that the victims be paid appropriate compensation for property damage as well as economic and social rehabilitation, as entitled under the SC/ST Act; 3. A First Information Report (FIR) be immediately registered by a police officer of a rank not below that of the Deputy Superintendent of Police, that includes all relevant and proper sections of the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act 4. A proper case be registered under the provisions of the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989, against the social boycott in particular, against all the accused. 5. The boycott and migration be officially recognized and declared by the Social Welfare Department for as long as necessary; 6. Police protection be provided for as long as necessary; 7. The village Sarpanch (council leader) be suspended immediately. Your’s sincerely,
Dear Sir ,
INDIA: Dalits face a social boycott for asserting their right to vote; most are forced to leave home
Names of victims: 1. Mr. Versibhai Dayhabhai Badhiya (member of a Scheduled Caste, 45 years old), the council head of Kanothi Village, Vav Taluka, Banaskantha District As well as the Dalit community of Kanothi Village, Vav Taluka, Banaskantha District
Names of alleged perpetrators: 1. Suigam Station Police Inspector And the non-Dalit community of Kanothi Village, Vav Taluka, Banaskantha District
Date of incident: April 30 to May 27, 2009 Place of incident: Kanothi Village, Vav Taluka, Banaskantha District
I am writing to express my concern about a social boycott against a Dalit community and the inappropriate police response to it.
I am informed by Navsarjan, a human rights organisation based in Gujarat, that Mr. Badhiya and his brother were approached by 13 non-Dalits on April 30 and instructed to vote for the non-Dalits’ chosen candidate in the Lok Sabha (House of the People in the National Parliament) election. His refusal lead to the pair being physically and verbally harassed. Mr. Badhiya filed a complaint despite prolonged resistance from the police and in response the non-Dalit community started a boycott, forbidding any economic or social interaction with the Dalits on pain of a Rs 5000 fine.
Since the boycott started 125 families have allegedly been forced to leave in order to find work. The remaining 75 families will most likely also have to leave after the National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (NREGA) scheme expires, which currently ensures the Dalits 100 days of work at 100 rupees per day.
Though we have been informed that Mr. Hare Krishna Patel, the Superintendent of Police, gave several orders which were effective in lessening the social boycott, the overall response of the police and the government has been inadequate.
The police protection provided was insufficient in length, extending only until the closing of the election at 5 pm on April 30, the same day as the initial assault on Mr. Badhiya. On May 2, the Suigam Station Police Inspector refused to register Mr. Bhadiya’s complaint for two days, in violation of the Scheduled Castes/Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act (1989). This neglect was evident again when the District Executive Magistrate gave no response to a memorandum filed by Mr. Bhadhiya on May 25, and when an investigation was not made into the boycott, despite an order from the Superintendent of Police on May 27. Furthermore the NREGA scheme offers only 100 days of relief, while the boycott continues.
These incidents are unacceptable violations of the Scheduled Castes/Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act (1989), the Protection of Civil Rights Act (1955) and the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (1966), ratified by India in 1968. As was highlighted by the United Nations Committee on Elimination of Racial Discrimination’s report on India in 2007, the human rights of these Dalits have been given no regard. I therefore request that:
1. The victims be provided adequate police protection for the needed duration; 2. A charge be made against the Suigam Station Police Inspector; 3. An inquiry be held into the entire incident; 4. A First Information Report (FIR) be registered that includes all relevant and proper sections of the Scheduled Castes/Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act (1989) 5. The boycott and migration be officially recognized as long as necessary by the responsible authorities; 6. The victims of atrocities be given immediate relief, compensation, as well as economic and social rehabilitation, as entitled under the Scheduled Castes/Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act (1989), including the extension of the NREGA scheme to as long as the boycott is in place. A more detailed analysis of the legal violations in this case, plus further recommendations, can be found on the website of the Asian Human Rights Commission.
AN APPEAL TO HONOURABLE CHIEF MINISTER OF MANIPUR
Dear Sir , Re: INDIA: Manipur state police officers must be investigated for two extrajudicial killings and the shooting of five bystanders Name of victims: 1. Mayanglambam Thokchom Rabina, aged 23 years, wife of Chinglensana of Lamdeng Khunou 2. Chongthan Sanjeet Meitei, Khurai Kongpal Sajor Leikai, Tinsid Road, Imphal East District 3. Wankheirakpam Gitarani Devi, wife of deceased W. Nongyai Singh of Tengdongyang; in a serious condition from a gun shot injury on her chest and left leg 4. Ningthoujam Kishorani Devi, wife of N. Raghumani Singh of Narakonjin; shot in her left leg 5. Golmei Mangol, son of Lemba of Maha Kabui Namching, Keithelmanbi; bullet injury in his left arm 6. Pangambam Lukhoi Singh, son of P. Pakchao Singh of Heingang Makha Leikai; shot in the chest and in a serious condition 7. Kangabam Subhachandra Singh, son of K. Samungou Singh of Kha-Potsangbam; suffered minor injuries to his right ear. Name of alleged perpetrators: Officers of Manipur Police Commandos Date of incident: 23 July 2009 Place of incident: Imphal, Manipur, India I am writing to voice my concern regarding the killing of a pregnant woman and a young man by Manipur Police Commandos (MPC) on 23 July 2009. I am informed that five other persons were also injured in the incident. According to the information I have received the MPC was conducting a search in the town, and Chongthan Sanjeet Meitei was taken into a local medical shop, where he was shot, and his body dragged out by officers shortly after. The woman, Rabina, was killed in another incident that day in which police shot at a person who was allegedly fleeing from the area. The five other bystanders were also injured in the shooting. All are victims of the abuse of power continually on display by state agents in Manipur, along with a gross disregard for the law, and for the safety of those they are bound to protect. I am outraged by a statement read by the state Chief Minister in the State Legislative Assembly, justifying these kinds of killings. I am aware that the media has documented the entire incident and it has been reported widely in the country, yet the official report given by the police involved is vastly different and exonerates them. I am informed that no independent legal inquiry has been ordered into the deaths, and that no action has been taken against the police officers involved. I consider the police department inquiry that has been ordered extremely unlikely to be independent or impartial, considering the circumstances and the false claims already made and upheld in the face of dissenting evidence. In light of the above facts and circumstances, I request that necessary legal action be taken in order to: 1. Bring out the fact of the killing of innocent civilians through judicial inquiry without any delay; 2. Punish the police officers involved in the incident; 3. Provide compensation to the victims in the incident and protection to the witnesses; 4. Repeal the AFSPA according to the recent recommendations made by Justice Jeeven Reddy Commission Your’s sincerely,
