For Urgent Attention

Press Release

We have received information from PUCL Chhatisgarh about a CPI (Maoist) leader and Central Committee member, Mr. Bijoy alias Prasad having disappeared from Raipur since the evening of 28.12.2005, where he had gone for treatment.

PUDR has recently highlighted the lawlessness with which state forces have been conduting themselves in anti-naxalite operations in Chhatisgarh. Tribals in Bastar are being killed by the security forces and the dead bodies are being disposed off without even a record.

Given this context we fear for the life of the 67 year old arrested CPI (Maoist) leader.

Peoples Union for Democratic Rights, Delhi (PUDR) therefore demands that the Chhatisgarh state authorities respect the rule of law and immediately announce the detention of the leader and register a formal arrest.

Secretary, PUDR
