Sign online petition to demand judicial probe of Batla House encounter

Posted by Admin on September 10, 2009

By Mumtaz Alam Falahi,,

New Delhi: After the Ishrat Jahan encounter has been proved fake, human and civil rights activists are again trying to build up pressure on the Delhi and Central governments to order a judicial probe into the Batla House encounter in which two ‘suspected terrorists’ were gunned down last year by the Special Cell (notorious for encounters) of the Delhi Police.

Jamia Teachers’ Solidarity Association, which has been in the forefront of the movement for judicial probe into the Batla House encounter, has called upon people to sign an online petition in order to pressurize the government to reverse its stand and order a judicial probe in this encounter also. When the communal BJP-ruled Gujarat can allow a judicial probe into Ishrat encounter, why the ‘secular’ Congress-ruled Delhi and Central governments can’t into Batla House encounter, the rights activists ask. The online petition can be signed on

A magisterial probe two days back concluded that June 2004 Ishrat Jahan encounter was fake as besides Mumbai college girl Ishrat three others were shot dead in cold blood by the Ahmedabad police. It was a fake encounter staged by the top police officials for promotions, said the probe. The police had described the four as members of Pakistan-based terrorist organization Lashkar-e-Taiba out on the mission to kill Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi. Read the rest of this entry »

YSR a dictator, war lord, World Bank agent: Maoist leader Koteshwara Rao

Posted by Admin on September 10, 2009

The Communist Party of India-Maoist on Tuesday finally broke its silence over the tragic death of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy [ Images ]. The outlawed organisation described his death as the end of an era of a ‘dictator, a war lord and an undemocratic World Bank agent’.

Koteshwara Rao alias Kishenji, a senior underground leader of the CPI-Maoist, told in a telephonic interview that the lobbying by senior Congress leaders in the state, to make YSR’s son Jaganmohan Reddy [ Images ] the next CM, had revealed the true colours of the party. “It is all about dynastic rule. They want the son of the Raja to be the next Raja,” he said.

He dismissed the outpouring of grief across the state after YSR’s demise as an orchestrated show. “They are claiming hundreds of people died for him. We understand that only 10-15 people ended their lives for him and we see it as part of the culture of south India, where people have blind love for film stars and politicians,” Rao said.

“Even (Telugu Desam Party leader) Chandrababu Naidu [ Images ] had believed that there was a sympathy wave in his favour after Maoists attacked him in October 2003, but he was thoroughly defeated by the people (in the state assembly elections in 2004). The same thing will happen with the Congress,” he said. Read the rest of this entry »

Is Bonai going Narayanpatna way?

BHUBANESWAR: What started as an operation to track down the radicals who launched back to back attacks in Sundargarh’s Bonai sub division is fast becoming a pain for the State Government. The arrest of 30 villagers by the anti-Naxal force during the last week of August has snowballed into a crisis with the administration having little or no control over it.While tribal anger has spilled onto the road with locals laying seige to NH 23 for last two days, the political leaders of the region have pulled weight behind them leaving the Government red-faced.Drawing a parallel with the boiling situation in Narayanpatna may sound out of place but a closer look would say the anti-Naxal strategy has backfired in Bonai where simmering anger may just have helped the Red radicals gaining control over the region.

Rebel gets RI for 5 yrs

Sinku comes out of court after the verdict. (Srinivas)

Jamshedpur, Sept. 9: The fast-track court II of Awdhesh Mal today found rebel leader Shyam Sinku guilty in an arms case and sentenced him to five years’ rigorous imprisonment (RI).

Sinku, a CPI(Maoist) area commander of Ghurabandha in Naxalite-hit Ghatshila sub-division, was nabbed from the same police station area on June 26, 2006.

On being interrogated, the rebel revealed the address of a hideout in Dumaria. Police had raided the place and recovered two rifles, including a self-loading one. A case was registered against him under the arms act at the Dumaria police station on the basis of an FIR lodged by officer-in-charge Manoj Kumar Gupta.

Sinku, a Kumardubi resident, had told the police that he visited the steel city a number of times with his comrades. He also divulged secrets about the outlawed outfit’s operations in Ghatshila.

Sinku, considered a hard-core rebel, was involved in many subversive activities in and around Ghatshila.

Last year, a Jamshedpur fast-track court had sentenced him to 10 years’ RI after he was found guilty of a murder attempt on the village headman of Kasiabera village. Sinku was the first rebel to be convicted in a court of law by the Jamshedpur civil court.

The administration took stringent security measures while producing the rebel before the fast-track court today.

Lalgarh still not under control, night patrolling intensified

Posted by Admin on September 10, 2009

Jawans at a milestone at Bhimpur that says Lalgarh is 9km awayKolkata: The West Bengal government on Wednesday said night patrolling at Lalgarh in West Midnapore district was being intensified as the joint forces operating against the Maoists were yet to gain full control of the area.

“As of now, it is difficult to get full control of the area. Night patrolling is being intensified,” Home Secretary Ardhendu Sen told reporters after reviewing the situation in Lalgarh at a high-level meeting.

According to Sen, 35 people have been killed by Maoists since the joint forces began their operations on June 19. There are confirmed reports of death of two Maoists and unconfirmed reports of death of five.

Pointing out that the Maoists were striking in the areas where the joint forces were not present, he said the strategy was being changed constantly to surprise the tribals.

Noting that 45 hardcore Maoists have been arrested while another 80 were still at large, he said, “the situation can be controlled only after we are able to nab them or drive them out of the state.”

In reply to a question, he said Maoist leader Koteswar Rao alias Kishanji was in Lalgarh but was frequently on the move.
