The rally started from the Panchayat building premises located at village Kedmaraas, 7 kms away from Tongpal on Monday afternoon. After crossing seven kms long journey the rally converted into a public meeting at Tongpal. This meeting and rally was attended over by about 5000 tribals of the area consisting of all community (clans) of tribals.

In th meeting, taken place last evening at Tongpal the participants demanded unanimously to provide an x-gratia of rupees 10 lacs each to the family members of seven tribal villagers of village Soutnar, who have been killed by the police showing fake encounter and falsely naming them as naxals who were in fact the innocent tribals villagers. The second demand raised was to conduct judicial inquiry into the happenings on 20th June, there at Kokawada and lastly it was urged to the Government that the justice should be given to the villagers without prejudices and the culprits must be punished.

Protest march over fake encounter killing in Manipur

NEW DELHI – More than 100 fake shootout cases were registered across the country last year — and Uttar Pradesh tops the list, the government has admitted in parliament.

Minister of State for Home Affairs Ajay Maken informed parliament Tuesday that the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) registered 103 fake shootout cases in 2008 as compared to 93 in 2007 and 122 in 2006.

And up to July this year, 28 such cases have been registered across the country.

Uttar Pradesh accounted for the maximum fake shootout cases. As many as 41 cases were registered in 2008, 48 in 2007 and 82 in 2006. Up to July this year, NHRC has registered 11 cases in Uttar Pradesh.

Manipur: Murder in plain sight

Posted by Admin on August 5, 2009


Imphal, Sunday, 2 August 2009:

1. Chongkham Sanjit, 27, is seen standing in a PCO with the  Manipur Police Commandos adjacent to a pharmacy (marked by an arrow) in Imphal on July 23 2. Though surrounded by commandos, there is no obvious resistance from Sanjit
(marked by a red circle))
3. Sanjit is seen calmly
walking away with the heavily armed commandos
4. While a commando reaches for his pistol, Sanjit remains visibly calm. They are standing barely 500 metres from the state assembly 5. Sanjit, known to be a former member of the People’s Liberation Army, had retired on health grounds. Though surrounded, he is calm and there seems to be no urgency or imminent violence in the picture
6. In a sudden turn of events, Sanjit is hustled away roughly
by the commandos
7. Sanjit is dragged by the commandos into the pharmacy. He has been surrounded by commandos for several minutes and is obviously unarmed
8. A few minutes later, commandos drag Sanjit’s
dead body out of the pharmacy
9. Sanjit’s body is thrown into a truck. At no point while the camera was clicking had he offered any resistance to the commandos
10. Sanjit’s dead body on the truck. The camera continues to click. The commandos make no attempt to stop the public gaze
11. The body of Rabina Devi, a pregnant bystander. She was killed a few metres away in the police firing when they chased a fleeing youth 12. Sanjit’s body on a stretcher.His family claims he had broken his earlier links with the militants and was leading a normal life

In Manipur, death comes easy. In this damning sequence of photos, a local photographer captures the death of a young man, killed in a false encounter by the police in broad daylight, 500 metres from the state assembly. How can a State justify such a war against its own people, asks TERESA REHMANIF ANY picture can speak a thousand words, these photos — available exclusively to TEHELKA — could fill volumes. They capture a shootout that happened in the heart of Imphal, Manipur’s capital, barely 500 metres from the state assembly, on July 23. They show the moments before, during and after the ‘encounter killing’ of a 27-year-old Indian citizen – a young man called Chongkham Sanjit, shot dead by a heavily-armed detachment from Manipur’s Rapid Action Police Force, commonly known as the Manipur Police Commandos (MPC).

There is a grotesque and brutal history to the bullets that killed this young man. For years, decades even, security forces in Manipur have faced allegations of human rights violations and extrajudicial murders committed under cover of the draconian Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA). In 2000, Irom Sharmila, stirred by the gunning down of 10 civilians, including an 18-year-old National Child Bravery Award winner, by the Assam Rifles, started a hunger fast — that lasts to this day — in protest against the AFSPA. In July 2004, the nation was rocked by the protests of a group of Manipuri women who marched to an Assam Rifles base in Imphal, stripped naked and raised a searing banner: “Indian Army Rape Us”. They were protesting the rape, torture and murder, a fortnight earlier, of Thangjam Manorama, 32, who was picked up from her home at night by the Assam Rifles. Read the rest of this entry »
