Kalinganagar tribals accuse police of rights abuse

Posted by Admin on November 7, 2009

JAJPUR: A day after policemen were attacked by armed tribals, villagers from Kalinganagar steel hub have accused cops of harassing innocent
people and violating human rights.

The outfit spearheading the anti-land acquisition movement in Kalinganagar alleged that police tortured innocent tribals by giving the excuse of searching for persons accused of various crimes. "Police raided Baligotha village in the wee hours of Saturday when people were asleep. Earlier on many occasions. they have tortured the innocent tribals during raids. By harassing us, police are trying to suppress our agitation against land acquisition," Bisthapan Birodhi Janamanch (BBJ) secretary Rabindra Jarika said. "Even women and children were not spared. Our fundamental rights are at stake because we are unable to move freely," he added.

BBJ president Chakradhar Haiburu said. "We are in touch with human rights institutions and will seek their support in order to safe guard our fundamental rights," he added.

Police, however, rubbished the allegations. "Not a single innocent tribal has either been harassed or tortured. There is no violation of human rights. We have so far conducted four raids in the area to arrest the accused involved in Soy murder case. But instead of co-operating with police, tribals preventing their entry into the villages," SP (Jajpur) D S Kuttey said.

"Police have every right to arrest persons accused of crimes. But the tribals’ way of opposing the arrests are illegal and we will take action as per law," the SP added. TOI
