No justice in Gopalgarh firing

“The families of ten innocent Muslims who lost their lives and over 30 people who were injured in the Gopalgarh firing last year still await justice,” said Jamaat-e-Islami Hind Rajasthan chief, Engineer Khurshid Hussain, while adressing a meeting in Jaipur which reviewed the situation in the state.

Hussain said that the guilty officers who were suspended have been reinstated and are back on duty due to the police failure to file a chargesheet. Even after a year the CBI has failed to produce one.

The government transferred 17 of the police personnel and it’s only willing to give a mild punishment to them. One of the Congress leaders in the region pressurized the Police to cancel the transfer orders. Mr. Hussain condemned the fact that the state government gave in to the pressure tactics.

He appealed to the administration and the CBI for a speedy unbiased investigation of the case, independent of political pressures and awarding severe punishment to all the officers involved and to release the arrested innocent persons.
