Muslim Islamic NewsNCM takes note of Hashimpura cases

The Milli Gazette Online

16 May 2006

New Delhi: The National Commission for Minorities has been approached by members of the public and has seen reports in the media, about the lack of progress in the Hashimpura cases in UP in 1987 in which 41 persons lost their lives. Fifteen out of these were under the age of 20, the commission said in a press release here today.

On May 3, 2006 the Commission appointed a Special Counsel charged with the responsibility of pursuing the matter in the Tis Hazari Courts in New Delhi. The first hearing in the case, for the framing of the charges, took place yesterday.

Separately, the Commission has taken up with the UP state government the question of the inadequacy of the compensation of Rs 40,000 per head paid to the families of the deceased. The Commission has urged that this amount be increased to the level of compensation determined by the higher judiciary in similar cases of custodial deaths. The Commission intends to pursue this matter vigorously, the press release said. [12 May 2006]
