Release All Bhima Koregaon Accused Unconditionally: CPI
The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India has issued the following statement today (on February 11, 2021) demanding unconditional release of all accused in Bhima Koregaon case:
The Communist Party of India notes with pain and anguish that latest revelations show that cases were filed in the Bhima Koregaon case based on planted and manipulated documents put into the computers. Despite that the authorities are continuing to harass the activists, intellectuals, Dalit activists and sympathisers, under the allegation that a conspiracy has been hatched by them. The Party deplores the way NIA and other agencies act in order to suppress the genuine voice of opposition and dissent to the government policies. The Party demands that this must stop immediately and the release of all innocent accused.
It is surprising that no action is being taken against Sambhaji Bhide and Ekbote, who are accused of instigating communal tensions leading to riots in the area. The Party demands prompt action against them and an impartial probe into the matter.
