SDPI ANGUISHED OVER POLICE PUTTING OFF THE HOOK THE ACCUSED IN TABREZ ANSARI LYNCHING CASE.
The Social Democratic Party of India, (SDPI), has condemned the circumventing of justice in Tabrez Ansari lynching case in Jharkhand wherein the police charge-sheet has dropped murder charges against the 11 accused in the case.
SDPI national president M. K. Faizy in a statement expressed deep anguish and surprise at the police charge-sheet which cited that the “final post-mortem report” that Ansari died of “cardiac arrest”. It filed the charge-sheet last month saying it was “not a case of pre-meditated murder”, but a crime under Section 304 (culpable homicide not amounting to murder). However, it is a clear case of murder in cold blood by racist goons, he added.
Faizy questioned even the veracity of post-mortem report which looks like fabricated to help the murderers. We are losing faith on law enforcement agencies as they are working for the ruling parties. If you are associated with ruling party, you can do anything and get away. Otherwise, even to get bail is difficult, even though you are innocent. There were witnesses to the horrible crime committed by the accused. What caused the cardiac arrest? A hanged/gagged/smothered person also dies of “cardiac arrest”. How different is this murder?
Faizy said the police should be held equally responsible for these entire mob lynching cases as they failed to do their duty. The delinquent policemen should be charged for death due to negligence in custody.
Faizy expressed apprehension that once people lose hope in justice system, they may try to take revenge in their own way.
