Forbesganj Bihar Police Firing: Join protest today at 3:30pm in Delhi

People's Protest at Bihar Bhavan in Delhi today, Tuesday, 19 July 2011, 3:30 P.M. Demanding Justice for the Victims of Forbesganj Brutal Police Firing

Even as one and half months have passed since Forbesganj brutal police firing in Araria district of Bihar on 3rd June 2011  there is no sign of justice to the victims. In the Police impunity 4 innocent villagers including a pregnant woman and 6 months girl child were shot dead and 9 others were severely injured. The heinous and horrifying video clip of a Home Guard Sunil Kumar Yadav jumping on the body of an injured 17 year youth (who later died) is there on

All culprit police officials including S.P. Garima Malik, S.D.O. and S.H.O are roaming free and still on duty. No action has been taken against them by Nitish Kumar's Government in Bihar till now. No compensation has been given to any of the victims by the State Government till date.

Three FIRs against 3000 villagers are registered by the Forbesganj police under sections of 302, 307, 348, 27 of Arms Act etc. No FIR against the culprit police officials has been registered yet.

Family connection of Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi with the culprit factory owner is influencing the case and one of the reasons the State's inaction.

Join the protest at Delhi's Bihar Bhavan (map below) today, Tuesday, 19 July 2011, 3:30 P.M and be a part of Justice Campaign for the Forbesganj Victims.
