AligarhOn camera, a group of policemen are seen manhandling a woman in a pink salwar kameez and a man near her.

One cop then drags the woman along the ground.

This is how the police in Aligarh in Uttar Pradesh responded to a distraught couple whose six-year-old daughter had been found dead this morning in a garbage dump.

Aligarh is 330 kms from Lucknow, the state capital of Uttar Pradesh.

The child’s body was found this morning and in a few hours, nearly a hundred protestors gathered in the neighbourhood shouting slogans against the police. Officers used batons on the crowd, and attacked the girl’s parents.

The policeman who dragged the mother on the ground has been transferred while two others, who manhandled the protesters, have been suspended. Deputy Inspector General of Aligarh Division, D Prakash, acknowledged that “unnecessary force was used on protesters”.

The police have said an enquiry will be completed in three days.

Meanwhile, medical tests have confirmed the girl was sexually assaulted.

The Sunday Story

On March 11, the Supreme Court again issued notice to the Centre through the Secretary, Home Department, on police reforms. This was at the suo motu hearing of the case relating to the assault of a woman by Punjab constables and brutal beating up of women teachers in Bihar.

Notices were also issued to all the State governments and the Union Territories through the Chief Secretaries, the Home Secretaries, the Directors-General of Police, the Administrators and the Police Commissioners, requiring them to file affidavits on the implementation of court directions in what is now famous as the Prakash Singh case. The case has been listed for further hearing on April 1.

The National Police Commission was set up in 1979 to suggest measures on police reforms. The Commission recommended a Model Police Act to replace the outdated Police Act, 1861. However, none of the recommendations was implemented. On a writ petition filed in 1996 by Prakash Singh, former Director-General of the Border Security Force (see accompanying story and graphic), the Supreme Court on September 22, 2006, issued comprehensive directions.

They include: The Director-General of Police should be selected by the States from among the three senior-most officers on the basis of their length of service, very good record and range of experience. Police officers on operational duties like the Inspector-General of Police in charge of a zone, Deputy Inspector-General of Police in charge of a range, Superintendent of Police in charge of a district and Station House Officer in charge of a police station should have a minimum tenure of two years. The Centre and the States were to set up Security Commissions for selection and appointment of personnel and ensure complete autonomy in police administration.

The investigating police should be separated from the law and order police to ensure speedier investigation, better expertise and improved rapport with the people. There should be a Police Establishment Board in each State to decide all transfers, postings, promotions and other service-related matters of officers. A District Level Police Complaints Authority headed by a retired district judge will look into complaints against officers of and up to the rank of Deputy Superintendent of Police .

 Respected Sir

 I want to draw your attention on an incident in which the posted Border Security Force personnel not only harassing a person living in pittance but in this course showed total defiance to the order of Ministry of Homes as well as of their superior officer and infringed the Constitutional rights of a bonafide citizen.  

 Mr. Aizuddin  Biswas, son of Late Munaruddin Biswas, a resident of Char Parashpur village, Post- D/ Parashpur under Jalangi police station of Murshidabad district is a agrarian labourer who lost his land with other immovable property during the incessant erosions caused by the river Padma. He owned agrarian lands at Dayarampur village till 2005, thereafter it was totally eroded and he was forced to migrate at Char Parashpur, he received Patta (land title by the government) at the said village for his living, where he is living with his wife and minor children. His means of sustenance are cattle rearing and part time employment as agrarian labourer. On 15.7.2012 he bought 4 cows and 4 calves from adjoining villages to increase his income. He spent nearly Rs. 40000 for this purpose. Before the said purchase, on 13.7.2012, he duly informed the respective Gram Panchayet, Panchayet Samity and Block Development Officer and obtained approval on his request letter. While Aizuddin was trying to bring the cattle to his home in Char Parashpur village, the posted Border Security Force personnel resisted him to cross the river Padma with the cattle to his village. The cattle were still stranded at the village Raypara, the other side of the river. Aizuddin made a request to the Deputy Inspector General of BSF; Roshanbagh on 20.7.2012 to direct his force for allowing him to bring the cattle. The DIG instructed the ‘A’ Company of Charbhadra Company Headquarter of 91 BSF Battalion. Aizuddin met several times with the Company Commander of the said BSF Company as well the personnel at the Farazipara BSF- BOP of the said Company with his request. He also made complaint to the District Superintendent of Police, Murshidabad. But he was either mocked or jeered for his complaint to DIG- BSF anf SP. He even verbally abused by the said BSF personnel on duty at Raypara.

 In this connection I want to refer my complaint before the National Human Rights Commission (vide NHRC’s Case No. 44/25/13/08-09-PF/OC dated 8.2.11) and inquiry report conducted by Mr. R. R. Jha, Joint Secretary (Human Rights) Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India and duly submitted by Mr. Yashpal Dabas; Director to the Government of India; Ministry of Home Affairs (vide Memo No. 15011/20/2011-HR.II) dated 20th April, 2011 to NHRC. In this report the Ministry informed the Commission about the visit of Joint Secretary (HR) to Char Paraspur village on 9th of March 2011 and submitted his inquiry report with his recommendation. In his recommendation the Joint Secretary categorically opined and recommended for i) BSF as a Border Guarding Force should not be involved in regulating movement of rice and other grocery items purchased by persons in border areas either for their consumption or for local trade. Though, the recommendation was made on a complaint in which the issue was movement of groceries and rice but the recommendation is self explanatory in nature while dealing with movements of any thing without an ulterior motive of smuggling and in this case, the victim made it clear before the civil authorities and BSF authorities  and elected representatives of local self government about his bona fide reasons and purpose for the same, the civil administration, elected local government and BSF higher up made approval for the same.

 In this connection I demand for immediate arrangement of the movement for Aizuddin Biswas’s cattle to Char Paraspur village without any restriction. Mr. Biswas must be compensated for his financial loss due to the whimsical and arrogant acts of the said BSF personnel, who denied the instructions from their superior officer. The said act of the BSF personnel must be enquired by an independent and competent authority. The practice of restricting movements at bordering areas in accordance to whims of BSF personnel must end with appropriate governmental/ departmental instructions.

 Thanking You

Urgent call for action- Idinthakari , Anti Nuke protesters under Threat

Dear all:
It is difficult to get reliable news. The folks in Idinthakarai are in a virtual prison, and cannot go out to verify. Our friends from Tirunelveli suggest that 10 companies, or 2000 police, are posted in and around Idinthakarai. That is roughly four police for every woman fasting to since May 4 to be heard. The fear is that the police will attempt to arrest Udayakumar and Pushparayan tonight. But when Prashant Bhushan spoke to DIG Varadarajulu, he said that the 2000 people were posted as a precautionary measure, and that they have no intent to move into the village. That is a bit difficult to believe. At the very least, this is war talk. Why do they need 2000 armed men to contain 500 women fasting non-violently?

If the police contingent moves in to the village, the villagers will not keep quiet. We hope that things don’t get ugly.

Please call the Police and advise them against precipitate action.

The villagers are interested in dialogue, and the police should work towards that:

Bidari, Superintendent of Police:             9940193494
Varadarajulu. Deputy Inspector General of Police:            9840970530
