Alleging illegal detention, rights body holds bandh in 3 Naxal-hit UP districts

Posted by Admin on November 15, 2009

Human Rights activists in the Naxal-affected areas of Jharkhand, Bihar and UP today staged protests alleging illegal detention of four youths since the encounter of Naxal sub-zonal commander Kamlesh Chaudhary.

The activists led by the office bearers of the People’s Union for Civil Liberties (PUCL) in the respective states alleged that the Rohtas police of Bihar had picked up Chaudhary along with four others from Chhinari area on November 8.

The PUCL activists and a group of locals observed a bandh on Saturday in Sonbhadra, Chandauli and Mirzapur of UP and various districts of Bihar and Jharkhand.

Rajiv Yadav of PUCL said: “The Rohtas police handed over Chaudhary to their Sonbhadra counterparts where he was gunned down. The four others are either in the custody of Rohtas or Sonbhadra police.”

“Apart from the two detained — Motilal Kharwar of Chhinari, Rohtas, and Kamleshwar Yadav of Garhwa, Jharkhand, they are searching for the names of two others who belong to Malahipur village of same Chhinari area,” added Yadav.

“I have come to know about the allegations of illegal detention, but I am not aware of Kamleshwar or the other two,” said Vikas Vaibhav, SP of Rohtas.

“Kharwar belongs to Bharatpura village, Jharkhand. There is no case registered against Kharwar in Rohtas and he is not wanted in any other offence. Therefore there was no need to pick him up,” added Vaibhav.

“To verify the allegations, I had asked the local watchman to inquire about Kharwar’s whereabouts in his village, as it is not possible for the police to visit the village frequently. But, the watchman is yet to submit the reports,” he said.

Sonbhadra SP Preetinder Singh said: “No such persons from Rohtas or Jharkhand are detained with us. There is no case pending against any of the persons referred by the PUCL.”

The bandh called by the activists had no effect in the district, added Singh.

The PUCL has moved the National Human Rights Commission lodging a complaint against UP ADG (Law & Order) Brij Lal. HT
