BSP leaders condemn police inaction

Tarn Taran, October 2
Senior leaders of the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) in a press conference organised here today have condemned the district police for its failure in taking action against the erring persons committing atrocities on Dalits in the district.

Sucha Singh Mann, who has been declared the party candidate from Khadur Sahib Lok Sabha constituency for the next election, and other leaders of the party alleged that the party leaders in the area had brought many cases to the notice of the senior officials of the district police since long but the justice has been denied every time.

The BSP leaders said a Dalit family in Bhuchar Kalan village had been threatened on gun point by gangsters of the village many a times but the Chabal police have failed to book the alleged accused in spite of repeated requests by the family.

They said the family had been facing threats since the past four years but the police has taken no action against the said accused.


The leaders further alleged that Gurparkash Singh, a local resident and the party leader, had been attacked by some miscreants six months ago but the local city police took no action till date.

The leaders said, “The matter was even brought to the notice of the SSP but on the instructions of the ruling side the police have failed to do justice to the aggrieved family.”

The BSP leaders said the district police had bowed before the ruling SAD government in such a way that a case registered under Section 302 of the IPC in the death case of a Dalit youth Happy was converted into a road accident case by the local Sadar police.

The leaders warned the police that in case they denied justice to the Dalit families the party would be forced to do agitation and would demand for the President’s rule in the state keeping in view the poor law and order situation. — OC
