NEFIS ALONG WITH OTHER ORGANIZATIONS OF KARBI ANGLONG MEET UNION MINISTER OF STATE FOR HOME AFFAIRS!
SUBMITS MEMORANDUM FOR IMMEDIATE ENQUIRY INTO KARBI ANGLONG RAPE CASE!
Today North East Forum for International Solidarity(NEFIS) along with representatives from other organizations of Karbi Anglong submitted a memorandum to the Union Minister of State for Home Affairs demanding an immediate enquiry into the Karbi Anglong rape case.
It is to be noted that three women were raped in Khorsin Athoi in Karbi Anglong by 8 army personnel. AFSPA(Armed Forces Special Powers Act) is imposed in Karbi Anglong district of Assam under which Army officers have legal immunity for their actions. There are serious chances of putting even this rape case under the carpet as done earlier. Police can not take any action against the perpetrators unless the Home Ministry gives permission for the same. Such provisions clearly stand against common masses as such cases are gross violation of human rights and justice. Activists showed their concern over the rising militarization and asked for the immediate roll back of Armed Forces Special Power Act(AFSPA).
We request your esteemed daily to cover the news so that lakhs of people get justice and they can live a peaceful life.
