FORGOTTEN CITIZENS OF 2002

 

As a follow up to the collective decisions made at the Eleventh Memorial of the Gujarat Carnage of 2002, Survivors and lawyer representatives of the CJP met with Gujarat Revenue Secretary DJ Pandian and submitted a detailed memorandum outlining the grave issues that they face in terms of absence of amenities. Attached is a copy of the memorandum given to the government today. Issues related to home and land regularisation, sanitation and public health in the Faisal Park, Vatwa, Ektanagar, Citizens Nagar areas have been raised in the memorandum. The Revenue Secretary assured the delegation that the Collector, Ahmedabad and Municipal Commissioner, Ahmedabad would look into the issues raised by the memorandum at the earliest.

 

Victim Survivors of 2002 who are also IDPs (internally displaced persons) continue to languish in sub-human conditions eleven years after the state sponsored massacre which saw the brutal killings of over 2,000 members of the minority community and rendered thousands homeless. A year long protest programme to demand dignified rehabilitation from the Gujarat government was launched from Citizen’s Nagar, Bombay Hotel area from Thursday, February 28 2013, the eleventh anniversary of the pogrom.  The year-long mobilisation on behalf of IDPs will continue and extend to other rehabilitation colonies and IDPs living all over Gujarat. The memorandum will be accompanied by a detailed survey of 180 homes from these localities. The CJP will assist IDP communities all over Gujarat throughout the state to ensure regularization of their lands and homes, the provision of safe drinking water and sanitation facilities, access to primary health and education.

Pune teacher sexually abuses 22 minor girls, arrested #Vaw #WTFnews

TIMES NEWS NETWORK

Pune: The Chatushrungi police on Tuesday arrested a 50-year-old visiting academic of a prominent English medium school in the Aundh area here for allegedly sexually abusing about 22 girls from the fifth standard since the last two or three months.
The school authorities learnt of the abuse on February 5 after one of the girls complained to her teacher about the academic’s behaviour. The school conducted an internal inquiry and found that the academic, Pradeep Gothaksar, a resident of Panchvati, Pashan, had abused about 22 girls from the same class. The school contacted senior police inspector Bhanupratap Barge of the social security cell of the crime branch on February 22.
Barge, along with senior inspector Ajay Kadam of the Chatushrungi police station, held a meeting with the school authorities and the girls’ parents on Saturday. Barge said the parents were told of the sexual abuse during the meeting. “We also told the parents about the new Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012, and requested them to lodge a complaint with the police,” he said.
Barge said some girls had already told their parents about the sexual abuse but they had not approached the school authorities. “These parents were reluctant to approach the police too. However, we managed to convince them to lodge a complaint and also told them it would be considered a crime as per the new law if they didn’t,” he said.
Barge said a senior official of the school lodged the complaint against Gothaskar on Tuesday. Gothaskar was arrested by the Chatushrungi police in the evening and charged under sections 7, 9(F) and 10 of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012.
