The illegal detention of two political activists

Received Via Email

Dear friend,

"JANAKEEYA MANUSHYAVAKASA PRASTHANAM' strongly contempts the police atrocity against two political activists at Agaly, Palakkad.

Two political activists Sunil & Vinod belonging to PORATTOM were taken to custody by the Agaly Police on 31/08/2008 around 6.30 PM. The two above named where taken to the Police Station by the local trade union leaders while they were conducting a campaign against the recurring suspicious/unnatural death in Agaly- Attappadi area.This area is notorious for the operation of "Ganja" liquor Mafia. There are allegations against the political leaders of almost all the parties,Bureaucrats and Police for aiding the Mafia.Porattom was organising a mass campaign against these illegal/unloly ally and for a thorough enquiry in suspicious deaths occured in this area. Nearly within one year there were about 24 unnatural death reported from this area.In this jencture the campaign of Porattom created panic among the mafia -Bureaucrat-politicians ally and the illegal detention of porattam activicts is a counter blast.

JANAKEEYA MANUSHYAVAKASA PRASTHANAM calls all the democratic forces and human rights organisations to oppose this illegal detention of Porattom activists and to oppose the Mafia-Bureaucrat-Politician unholy alliance.

With Best Regards

here is petition sent to State Human Rights Commission regarding the issue.

Hon'ble chairman,

I am an Advocate practicing at Ernakulam and conveener of 'JANAKEEYA MANUSHYAVAKASHA PRSTHANAM'

On 31st August 2008 at about I received a phone call and I was informed that two political activists are detained at Agaly police station with out any reason.The person who called me sought my intervention in this matter.

Considering the seriousness of the matter I called to the agaly police station over phone(0492-4254222).The person who took the phone introduced himself to be the Dy.S.P.He admitted the detention of two political activists namely Vinod and Sunil and they were brought by the local people following a quarrel. He further told me that the intorrogation is in progress and no crime is charged so far.

Today I recevied a phone call from palakkad informing me that the above said detenues were not produced before the Magistrate till this time.Immediately I called the Agaly police station over my phone.It was informed that they will be produced today evening.
The above action of Agaly police is clear violation of constitutional rights.The direction given by our HON'BLE SUPREM COURT in D.K. BASU v STATE OF WEST BENGAL is not followed by the police .
I humbly request your good office an immediate intervention in this matter.
