Punish erring police officials in communal conflicts: AIDWA

Wednesday November 16, 2011 11:00:43 PM, IANS

New Delhi: The All India Democratic Women's Association (AIDWA) Wednesday demanded exemplary punishment for police officials responsible for "atrocities" during recent communal conflicts in different states and sought a legislation against communal violence.

At a convention here against communal conflict, AIDWA passed a resolution demanding speedy justice to the victims who belong to the minority community.

The AIDWA resolution said that ten members of minority community were shot dead by police in Bharatpur in September this year and four Muslims including a woman and a child were killed due to police firing in Araria district in Bihar when villagers were protesting forcible takeover of their land by a local politician from the ruling alliance.

It said that police had fired on protestors from minority community and communal fanatics had razed shops and property owned by them in Rudrapur in Uttarakhand and one person was killed in police firing in Moradabad in Uttar Pradesh.

Victims from Forbesganj in Bihar, Gopalgarh in Rajasthan, Rudrapur in Uttarakhand and Moradabad in Uttar Pradesh narrated their experience of "one-sided" police and administrative action at the convention.

"The convention condemned the communal bias of the police and administration during these riots," the resolution said.

The convention also demanded justice for victims of Guiarat riots and accused Gujarat government of "threatening and intimidating those who dare to expose the role of the chief minister (Narendra Modi) and his government in the Gujarat genocide."

Shweta Bhatt, wife of IPS officer Sanjeev Bhatt, addressed the convention and expressed solidarity with the riot victims.

AIDWA patron Brinda Karat said Gujarat government was stifling attempts to book Modi for 2002 riots. She alleged that witnesses were being intimidated and killed and said United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government had failed to provide protection of witnesses. She said that many survivors of the Gujarat riots were still living in camps "in deplorable conditions".
