Police said Gandhi was in-charge of a CPI(Maoist) committee on mass organisations, spreading its influence in urban areas and publication wing.

Encounter killings in States

Posted by Admin on September 22, 2009


Fake justice

“Encounter killing” is a pan-Indian phenomenon and an easy way out for men in uniform.

by Anupama Katakam

MAHARASHTRA was among the first States to introduce “encounter killings” as a method of policing and has perfected it over time.

Encounters fall into two categories in the State – shootouts that take place in Mumbai, which are largely underworld-related, and those that take place in the districts, particularly in the naxalite belt that borders Andhra Pradesh.

To understand the origin of encounters in Mumbai, one has to understand the history of crime in the metropolis. Police documents say that encounters began in the early 1980s, when the underworld started exercising control over the metropolis in a big way. At that time, it operated mainly in the area of hafta (protection money). Drugs, commercial sex, and trade in illegal weapons became major sources of income for the underworld, when Dawood Ibrahim took over from the don Karim Lala. Read the rest of this entry »

Fake Encounter Killings: Political patronage

Posted by Admin on September 22, 2009

Most political parties, when in power in the States or at the Centre, have turned a blind eye to extrajudicial killings.

Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram with Cabinet Secretary K.M. Chandrasekhar, Minister of State for Home Shakeel Ahmed and National Security Adviser M.K. Narayanan at a meeting in New Delhi with Chief Ministers of seven States affected by naxalite extremism.

IF one goes by the proclamations of the mainstream political parties in India, all of them are critical of all forms of extrajudicial killing. Leaders of all parties have time and again raised their voices against encounter killings and custodial deaths. Their declamations become all the more intense when such an incident makes the headlines in a State governed by their political adversaries. The leaderships of the two principal parties, the Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), have adopted such postures in various States. However, their own track record in the States they have ruled divest them of all moral authority to protest on this issue. Read the rest of this entry »

PIC FROM VIZAG--- Two posters, part of the publicity campaign launched by the district police against the CPI (Maoist) and to wean away Girijans from naxalites.

Hong Kong, China — “Naxals are nothing but cold-blooded murderers” said an advertisement published in the Indian media on Sunday. The advertisement was issued by the government of India as part of its advanced campaign against the “Naxal menace” in the country.

To add authenticity, the advertisement carried seven pictures of women, children and men killed by the Naxalites, along with the identities and other details of the victims.

The Naxal movement in India is rooted in the government’s failure to guarantee the basic norms of a democratic state to a large section of the country’s population, particularly in rural areas and remote villages. This explains why the Naxalite movement is mainly spread across the remotest villages. Read the rest of this entry »

The Special Cell of the Delhi Police arrested top Maoist leader Kobad Gandhi from an undisclosed place in Delhi late Sunday evening. A Tees Hazari court on Monday sent him to 14 days judicial custody.

Gandhi, a Politbureau and Central Committee member of the banned CPI (Maoist), was reportedly staying in Delhi for the past three years and was traced after inputs from intelligence agencies and Jharkhand Police.

“He has been with the CPI (Maoist) for last many years and was in-charge of expanding the party in urban areas. He “is widely acknowledged as an ideologue and was also in-charge of the party’s publication wing, and played a crucial role in getting international recognition to the party,” a senior police official said. “He was staying alone in Delhi but he has sympathizers here. We are checking his visits, mobile phone details and accounts to know about his contacts here in Delhi,” a senior police official said.

The police, however, did not disclose details about the place he was arrested from or recoveries made from him. The police is also clueless about the motive behind his stay in Delhi. Read the rest of this entry »

Maoists, CPM exchange fire, 10 Killed

Posted by Admin on September 22, 2009


Midnapore, Sept. 21: Two CPM activists were seriously injured when armed Maoists and a resistance group mostly of the Left party’s cadres exchanged fire for about four hours in West Midnapore this evening.

Maoist leader Kishanji later claimed that 10 CPM activists had died in the encounter in Enayetpur, about 10km from Midnapore town, but police did not confirm any deaths.

“At least 10 CPM cadres have been killed in the encounter. I invite Dipak Sarkar (the district secretary of the CPM in West Midnapore) to come and see the condition of the armed cadres of his party. We have surrounded the CPM office in Manidaha in which about 150 armed CPM men are holed up. If the men do not surrender their weapons, we will blow up the party office,” he said. Manidaha is about 5km from Enayetpur. Read the rest of this entry »
