Youth Forum for Protection of Human Rights (YFPHR) has strongly condemn attack to environment activist Ms Agnes Kharsheing and her colleagues by some of the illegal coal carriers truck drivers while they were tracking the route of illegal coal filled trucks and taking photograph of it at Tuber Sehshrieh area, East Jaintia Hills District Meghalaya on November 8.
“Continuous brutal attacked to the Human Rights Defender and Environment Defender is an action to suppress the voice of the people not to expose the real facts of illegal activities being carried out by the Mafias which is highly suspected to be in nexus and protected by the state to achieve their vested interest.
Mentioned may be made that on the 2nd of January, 2018, Manipur based NGO’s FCRA registration was suspended by the Ministry of Home Affairs (FCRA Wing) under a mere suspicion of opposing the Uranium mining at the South West Khasi Hill, Coal Mining and Limestone Mining in East Jaintia Hills.   
The YFPHR demands Special Investigation Team to investigate the matter to arrest the culprits who are involved in the attack and the mastermind behind the attack at the earliest.
The Youth forum also demands to  Uphold the provisions of the UN Declaration on Human Rights Defenders, 1999 and respect the rights of the Human Rights Defender and Environment Defenders and also to establish strict monitoring team to stop the Coal Mining as per the direction made by the NGT.
