CPI (M) demands immediate action against BSF personnel
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
New Delhi, July 19: CPI(M) today demanded immediate action against the BSF personnel who fired upon protestors in Ramban district of Jammu and Kashmir, claiming at least four lives and injuring dozens.
"It is essential to take strong action against those responsible for the brutalities perpetrated by the security forces and police in the valley. The CPI(M) urges the central government to act without any further delay," the party Politburo said in a statement here.
Condemning the "brutal firing" by the BSF on protesters yesterday, the CPI(M) accused the Centre of adopting an "utterly insensitive approach to the situation in the valley. Even on earlier occasions,
no one has been held accountable or punished for the killing of civilians".
It said that even though assurances were given, no one has been punished for the killing of over 100 young men by the security forces in the summer of 2010.
"Further, no steps have been taken towards a political solution to the problems in spite of the reports and recommendations of numerous commissions and committees."
