Kashmir government asked to pay Rs.500,000 for death in custody

Posted by Admin on August 27, 2009


New Delhi, Aug 22 (IANS) The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has asked the Jammu and Kashmir government to pay Rs.500,000 to the family of a man who was allegedly “tortured” and electrocuted six years ago by the state police.

The NHRC has also asked the state government to submit within two months a compliance report with proof of payment made to the victim’s family.

Mohan Lal of Amritsar was arrested by the police July 1, 2003, from Jammu for his alleged involvement in a burglary case.

“He was tortured during the interrogation following which he died on July 2, 2003, in the Police Line Hospital of Jammu. The first postmortem conducted at Government Medical College Jammu disclosed 16 ante-mortem (fatal) injuries on Mohan Lal’s body,” the rights body said in a statement.

Lal’s relatives then took his body to Amritsar and did a second autopsy which “revealed that there were 41 ante-mortem injuries, including six marks of electric shocks”, the statement added.

The commission, which took up the matter on a complaint filed by human rights activist Suhas Chakma, issued notice to the Jammu and Kashmir government.

“The state government failed to submit reply to the notice,” the statement said, adding that the commission then recommended that the Jammu and Kashmir government pay monetary relief of Rs.500,000 to the deceased’s next of kin.

HP, Uttarakand’s no for forces to J&K halts CRPF withdrawal

Posted by Admin on August 10, 2009


greyhound_shoot_teamSrinagar: Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand have decided against providing India Reserve Police (IRP) to Jammu and Kashmir, thus putting a temporary halt on shifting four more battalions of the CRPF from the state for fighting Left-wing extremism in other parts of the country.

After withdrawal of five battalions (5,000 personnel) from the Kashmir valley, four more were to be moved out from Baderwah, Gandoh, Poonch and Rajouri areas of Jammu region and replaced by India Reserve Police forces to be provided by Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Punjab and Haryana, official sources said.

While Punjab and Haryana have agreed, the other two states cited law and order problem and decided against it.

The shifting of the CRPF is part of Centre’s plan to move out at least 23 battalions of paramilitary forces and shift them to left wing extremism-affected areas outside the state.

This includes 16 battalions of the CRPF-10 from Kashmir valley and six from other areas, five of Border Security Force and two of Indo-Tibetan Border Police.

Sources in the Home Ministry said they wanted to have the CRPF battalions before August 13 so that they could undergo an Army training before being shifted to the naxal-affected areas. Samaya Live
