PATNA: Maoist leader Deo Kumar Singh alias Arvind Kumar’s wife Prabhawati Devi on Friday moved Bihar Human Rights Commission, accusing police of victimising her family by instituting fake cases.
She alleged Patna police have hatched a conspiracy to implicate her elder son Prince and brother Prabhat Kumar in false cases, describing them as workers of outlawed CPI (Maoist).
Police lodged an FIR against the duo under different Sections claiming that illegal arms, ammunition and Naxal literature were seized from their houses during a police raid recently.
Prabhawati, in her application to the rights commission, claimed that while her son was a teacher at a coaching institute, her brother was running a travel agency and they had nothing do with the activities of the banned outfit.
She also claimed that policemen acted with an intention to harass her family members as they were feeling frustrated because of their failure to nab her husband.
Prabhawati’s younger son Abhishek Ranjan, an IIT graduate, feels the same. "How can family members be punished for the acts of my father?" he asked TOI on Friday and rued that police appeared bent on not allowing his family to remain in the mainstream. TOI
