Ranchi: It is almost eight months now, but the case of human rights violation which had led several cases of lynching, fake encounter, custodial death and Pathalgadi related cases which had made Jharkhand infamous globally during the previous government are yet to be addressed and acted upon by the Jharkhand police.

To remind, the members of Jharkhand Janadhikar Mahasabha (JJM), an umbrella body of several civil society groups in the state met the DGP of Jharkhand, MV Rao.

First and foremost they have demanded for swift action in the recent case in which CRPF personnel had allegedly beating Adivasis in West Singhbhum’s Chiriabera. The delegation explained the major points of fact-finding team in details.

On June 15, CRPF personals beat eleven tribal villagers of Chiriabera village in West Singhbhum. They were beaten because of not being able to speak in Hindi. Their houses were damaged and documents were torn apart. Among the injured, 3 were had severe injuries. But even after the complaint, case registered by police, did not mention CRPF’s alleged brutality.

“On several occasion, we as well as villagers requested Chaibasa Superintendent of Police and Deputy Commissioner to make correction in the case (no 20/2020), but police did not take action,” said Siraj Dutta.

Mahasabha demanded to change in FIR and add of SC/ST section, set up of an inquiry commission and action against those policemen who are saving accused CRPF men.

The delegation also raised the issue of pending or inadequate police action in several cases of human rights violations of recent past.

The team specifically demanded immediate implementation of Jharkhand government’s decision to withdraw Pathalgadi cases, action against perpetrators of human rights violations in the Pathalgadi villages, immediate investigation into murder of Adivasi activists and removal of police camps from schools in Khunti. It further pointed out the lack of police responsiveness in cases of lynching and demanded that action be taken against the erring police officials like those of Harish Pathak, who is accused in the custodial death of Minhaj Anari.

DGP said that the government is in the process of withdrawing the case and action on all the issues will be taken within a month.

The delegation constituted of Bineet Mundu, Elina Horo, PM Tony, Praful Linda, Seerat Kachchap and Siraj Dutta.
