Protest against Centre’s anti-Maoist operation

India--Delhi protestProtestors termed it a ploy of the State to exert control over the mineral-rich regions of the country inhabited by the tribal populace

Akash Bisht and Sadiq Naqvi, Hard News, Delhi, November 3, 2009

The central government’s plan to launch an offensive against the Maoists is facing stiff opposition from all quarters. A students’ group held a protest at Jantar Mantar in Delhi against the Operation Green Hunt. Apart from students, the gathering saw workers and professionals raise their voice against the offensive and in support of the development of the tribals. The agitators claimed that it’s a war of the people against exploitation by the neo-liberal State.

The protest was organised by the Forum against War on People, a newly formed initiative of students, teachers and other professionals and the Revolutionary Democratic Front (RDF). Read the rest of this entry »

Delhi: Scanner on pro-Maoist academics

Posted by Admin on October 18, 2009


DSU 4ANANYA SENGUPTA

New Delhi, Oct. 17: The government is drawing up a list of academics from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences and Jawaharlal Nehru University who it believes are Maoist sympathisers.

The CBI had put these senior doctors and professors under its scanner soon after the arrest of alleged CPI (Maoist) politburo member Khobad Ghandy last month. Agency sources say many students from across Delhi too are using their rented accommodation to shelter Maoists.

CBI sleuths claim these doctors and university teachers had helped Ghandy set up base in Delhi and recruit students from the capital.

They add that the agency has tracked two meetings in Delhi organised by the city’s Maoist sympathisers to discuss Ghandy’s arrest.

The sources claim the CBI has documents to show that at least three AIIMS doctors, and many more Delhi academics and students, had visited Russia, China and Kazakhstan for ideological discussions. It’s not clear, however, if arrests will follow.

When Delhi police applied in a city court on October 8 for an extension of Ghandy’s remand, they had said they were looking for three alleged Ghandy associates — two businessmen and a PhD student, Arvind Joshi.

The police application said Joshi, 27, who is from Haldwani in Uttarakhand, was believed to have hidden Ghandy at his rented quarters in the Badarpur area of south Delhi.

The police found nothing in Joshi’s rooms but claimed the student had removed a set of Maoist literature, documents, CDs, a laptop and the hard disk of another laptop as well as Rs 5 lakh from his quarters.

Officers said these claims were based on information that Ghandy allegedly provided during interrogation.

The police say they are on Joshi’s trail and would arrest him. The claims about Delhi-based sympathisers providing logistical support to the rebels come days after Union home minister P. Chidambaram asked civil society to stop “romanticising Naxals” and start judging them in the context of the “mountain of (Maoist) violence”.

On Thursday, an agricultural scientist who had briefly studied for a doctorate at Delhi’s Pusa Institute years ago was arrested for allegedly heading Maoist operations in Bihar and Jharkhand. His wife too was arrested. TT

Anniversary of Batla house Fake encounter: protest held, judicial probe demanded

Posted by Admin on September 20, 2009


New Delhi: Dilli Police Murdabad, Sheila Dikshit Murdabad, NHRC Murdabad were the slogans in the air in Jamia Nagar area on Friday on the eve of the first anniversary of the Batla House encounter. The marchers carrying torches and placards under the banner of Jamia Teachers’ Solidarity Association were demanding a judicial probe into the encounter.

The Special Cell of the Delhi Police conducted the encounter on September 19, 2008 at the House No. L-18 in the Batla House locality of Jamia Nagar, killing two Azamgarh youth whom the police described as terror suspects. Civil rights groups said it was a fake encounter. Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit is believed to have prevented a judicial probe for fear of losing Hindu votes in the Assembly poll held last December. After much protest National Human Rights Commission conducted a probe only to give a clean chit to the police. The NHRC report was blasted by human and civil rights activists and lawyers.

Sign online petition to demand judicial probe of Batla House encounter

By Mumtaz Alam Falahi, TwoCircles.net,

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 »

Jamia teachers protest against ‘encounter killings’

Posted by Admin on August 14, 2009


Manipur fake en87Bombay News.Net

Friday 14th August, 2009 (IANS)

New Delhi, Aug 14(IANS) Teachers of Jamia Millia Islamia University Friday staged a protest at ITO crossing here against what they called ‘encounter killings’ by the state police forces in various parts of the country.

‘We are protesting against the encounter killings by state forces, the arbitrary arrests of Muslim youth and the blatant whitewashing of such crimes by state agencies. All this in the name of national security and war against terror,’ Manisha Sethy, president of Jamia Teachers Solidarity Associaton, told IANS.

Jamia teachers, who came along with members of the All India Students’ Association (AISA) and Manipur Students Association of Delhi, said the ‘cold-blooded murder’ of Chungkham Sanjit, a 27-year old Manipur man in broad daylight July 23 by the Manipur Police Commandos was an evidence.

They pointed out that he was murdered barely 500 metres from the state assembly building in Imphal and this showed ‘the sordid truth’ of how people were being indiscriminately killed in the name of gun battles with the police. Read the rest of this entry »

Say No to Encounter Killings! Observe National Day of Protest against Encounter Killings on 14th August

Say No to Encounter Killings!

This Independence Day, Demand freedom from Encounters

Observe National Day of Protest against Encounter Killings on 14th August

Assemble at ITO Chowk, 3.30 pm, 14th Aug (Friday)

The Jamia Teachers Solidarity Association along with other organisations has called for a National Day of Protest on 14 August 2009 against the continuing trend of ‘encounter’ killings by state forces, the arbitrary arrests of Muslim youth and the blatant whitewashing of such crimes by state agencies. All this in the name of ‘national security’ and ‘war against terror’.

The cold-blooded murder of Chungkham Sanjit, a 27-year old Manipur youth in broad daylight on 23 July by the Manipur Police Commandos, barely 500 meters from the state assembly building in Imphal, has once again highlighted the sordid truth about ‘encounter’ killings in India. While the MPC had claimed initially that Sanjit had been killed while escaping during a routine screening operation, their lie was nailed by a series of photographs published by the Tehelka magazine, which showed the unarmed, peaceful youth was shot by the commandos without provocation. In addition, a pregnant woman, Mrs. Rabina and the five-month-old child in her womb were also killed, while five others were wounded.

Last year on 19 September the Delhi police had carried out a similar ‘encounter’ against alleged ‘terrorists’ of the Indian Mujahideen at Batla House in New Delhi. This would have been another routine ‘encounter’ if not for the nationwide outcry from human rights groups, students and academics. Read the rest of this entry »

If it is I-Day, you must be a terrorist Curious catch of ‘militants’

Posted by Admin on August 10, 2009


10augustnew.jpgNew Delhi, Aug. 9: Before every Independence Day, Delhi police catch a few “militants”, none of whom have been convicted in 10 years.

City police’s special cell has arrested 29 “terrorists” in the run-up to Independence Day or Republic Day since January 24, 2000, the last two arrests coming on Friday. Some trials are dragging on; the rest are yet to start.

“The police keep a tab on Kashmiris who come to Delhi, pick them up from bus stations or railway stations, keep them in safe houses and then produce them just before I-Day or R-Day,” alleged lawyer Shanwar Khan, who is defending some 50 terror accused in Delhi and other states.

On Friday, Javed Ahmad and Ashiq Ali were allegedly arrested from a parking lot with two AK-47s, two hand grenades and 120 bullets in their car. They were Pakistan-trained and had direct instructions from Hizb-ul Mujahideen chief Syed Salauddin to wage war against India, the police said.

Khan said he knew of instances where the Delhi police had accepted missing persons complaints from the families of the accused, who had come over from Kashmir — without revealing that the youths were in their custody. Read the rest of this entry »
