New Delhi: The Communist Party of India (Marxist)- CPI (M)- has demanded a judicial inquiry into the killings in Assam.
The CPI (M)Polit Bureau, in a statement, said, “In the name of evicting ‘suspected illegal migrants’ from Government land, the Assam State Government has unleashed violence against citizens of India, poor peasants who have been tilling the land for decades. The entire programme is communally designed.”
Demanding a judicial inquiry under a sitting judge of the Guwahati High Court, the CPI (M) added that “the horrific brutalities on the peasants captured on camera require immediate action against the police personnel involved”.
The Polit Bureau also demanded an end to all evictions and compensation to those killed and injured. (Press Release)
