Brinda Karat protests over closure of Jharkhand lynching case by NHRC


Brinda KaratCPI(M) Polit Bureau member Brinda Karat, has strongly objected to the closure of the complaint she had made in 2016 related to the mob lynching of a 12 year old boy Imtiaz Khan and his uncle M. Ansari in the Latehar district of Jharkhand by National Human Rights Commission, NHRC

She has written a letter to the Chairperson of the National Human Rights Commission strongly protesting against the closure …
Text of the Letter

This is with reference to the letter dated 27.10.2018, Case No. 494/34/22/2016 received by me from the National Human Rights Commission, Law Division.

It is extremely disappointing to learn that the Commission has closed the said case concerning the compensation for the next kin of M. Ansari and Imtiaz Khan, who were victims of brutal lynching case in Latehar, Jharkhand. The Rs. 1 lakh compensation offered to the families is an affront to justice and, therefore, it was not taken by the family. Surely, the job of the National Human Rights Commission is to ensure fair compensation for families who have been torn apart by brutal lynchings as in these two cases. It is shocking that the NHRC has not insisted that the meagre amount of Rs. 1 lakh offered by the Jharkhand Government should be increased.

Secondly, the case has been closed saying that the family did not respond within four weeks of your sending the report. Considering that the Commission itself has taken two years to enquire into the case, it is unfair that simply because the family has not answered within four weeks you closed the case. There may be valid reasons such as migration for work etc., which made it difficult to respond within the stipulated time. It certainly does not mean that the Commission can take for granted that the family has accepted this report.

I request you to reconsider the matter to ensure that the victims’ families are given adequate compensation and justice.
