In the wake of recent attacks on protestors by security forces and their deteriorating actions, Women Action for Development has urged the concerned authorities not to sit idle as a mute spectator.
The ongoing ILP movement is becoming more intense after the death of Sapam Robinhood in the crackdown by the police and the recent action by the police towards the school girls who participated in the protest at Secretariat Office. As the situation is becoming more fragile, the worse actions by the police could be noticed. In this movement many victims are the students. Killing a students and injuring many others is not the sign of good governance. However, the steps taken up by the Government to control the mob consistently result in injuring many protestors and also on the side of the police, said a release from WAD.
Security forces have killed, tortured, raped many in the state and the crimes committed by law enforcing institution are not punished due to complete failure in the criminal justice system in our state. The institution of justice-police, prosecutors and the judiciary are in a terrible situation. When the judiciary is not independent then nothing good can be expected.
