PRESS RELEASE

Date: 12.04.15

NEFIS(North East Forum for International Solidarity)  demands immediate arrest of army personnels  who raped three women in Karbi Anglong district of Assam. It is to be noted that 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. NEFIS will take up the issue in the coming days against inaction against the rapists.

 

Thanking You
