Forbesganj firing: Police killed women, infant from pointblank




Shocking video of the dead persons expose brutal face of Bihar police under JDU-BJP rule

By Mumtaz Alam Falahi, TwoCircles.net,

Patna: The Bihar police are becoming more brutal and communal under the rule of Nitish Kumar who is heading a coalition government of Janata Dal (United) and Bharatiya Janata Party. In less than six months in Muslim-dominated Araria district, the police have opened fire to kill Muslim rural protesters on two different occasions.

On 3rd June 2011, residents of Rampur and Bhajanpur villages under Forbesganj block in Araria district came out, after Juma Prayer, to protest against blockade of the connecting road between the two villages for a factory. The police not only opened fire on the protestors but chased them to their homes, entered in and killed even women and infant pointblank. Six people including two women and a six-month-old infant of the two villages of 90% Muslim population were killed. While the state government claims that four people were killed, TwoCircles.net has got a video of the bodies of all six victims including the infant.

What exposes the brutal face of the police is the bullet marks on the bodies. All the victims have got bullets on head, face, neck, chest and abdomen. This clearly tells that the police opened fire on them to kill not to just terrorize them. There are burnt marks around the bullet holes, evident that they were killed pointblank. Moreover, video clip shows bullet marks on walls and windows of homes.

The poverty that looms large on the area belies the police claim that protestors were armed and they fired on police.

Case:

Rampur and Bhajanpur villages (90% Muslim population) had an old connecting road. For last some time they were using the NH 57 but after it was converted into a four-lane road and a flyover was constructed over it, the villagers stopped using it due to high traffic and accidents and returned to their old road. Meanwhile, the land between the two villages including the road was given to a company Auro Sundaram International Company by Bihar Industrial Area Development Authority to set up a Glucose factory.

The villagers demanded that their road is not disturbed. If not the same, they should be given alternative road. But none heeded to their demand. However, of late some talks began between the villagers and the company officials with the mediation of the district administration.

There was a meeting on Wednesday (1st June 2011) between the company officials, administration and villagers. They agreed on a road but next day (on Thursday) the company turned back and started blocking the road. The news spread like wildfire and next day (on Friday), hundreds of people of the area came out protesting after Friday prayer. They demolished the portion blocking the road and put on fire a jeep of the company. Senior officers including SP reached the site. Police fired on the protestors. They chased them to village, entered their homes and killed people including women and infants.

Influence of Sangh Parivar in the district

Over many years, Araria district, though has Muslim population (41%), has elected BJP candidates. Bhajanpur and Rampur villages come under Rampur Panchayat which comes under Forbesganj block. The block falls in Forbesganj Assembly constituency which is held by BJP MLA Padam Parag Roy 'Venu'. Local MLC is Ashok Agarwal, also BJP. And Araria district is represented in Lok Sabha by BJP’s Pradeep Kumar Singh. Since JDU-BJP alliance came to power six years back, RSS has held several meetings here inviting top Sangh leaders.

Very interestingly, one of the directors of the Auro Sundaram International Company is Saurabh Agarwal, son of BJP MLC Ashok Agarwal.

“The entire region has been peaceful. Never any ISI ‘agent’ was picked up from here, but for last some years the entire belt has been presented as haven for terrorists. Sangh and BJP people have been making such propaganda. ABVP calls it chicken net. Since BJP came to power in alliance with JDU, RSS and Sangh have held here several meetings and their top leaders have arrived here,” says Mr Nayyaruzzaman, state president of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind. He belongs to Araria district and was living there until one month back when he was elected state president of JIH and shifted to Patna but he frequently visits Araria.

Police becoming lawless under Nitish regime

Condemning the bloody police firing on local Muslims, Mr Nayyaruzzaman said: “The wrong policies of Nitish Kumar Government have made state police lawless. Full power has been given to police that is violating civil rights.”

“If there was any dispute it should have been resolved through dialogue. If the police had worked with wisdom, the tragedy could have been averted.”

He sent a two-member team to the affected area on Saturday to find out the truth. The firing had taken place at 3 pm on Friday. Fortunately, the team could get to the bodies of the victims and what they saw and captured in the video is simply shocking. Young kid, and women were killed pointblank. Six were killed including one child and two women.

Govt claims and media carried it that villagers attacked police party with arms and there was an encounter between police and public for one hour. But Mr Nayyaruzzaman refutes it saying, “It is false. The villagers are very poor, they are jute mill laborers.” And this is evident from the cluster of huts and kuccha houses in the villages.

This police firing has occurred in less than six months. About 17 km away from this firing spot is Batraha village in Kursakanta area in the same district. At Batraha, on 20th December 2010, SSB jawans had opened fire on the Muslim protestors when they reached the camp to complain that some of the jawans the previous night had entered one of village homes and misbehaved with women. Four Muslims were killed in that firing. They were Mohammad Shahnawaz, Mohammad Jabir, Mohammad Qurban and Farhat Jahan.

Mr Nayyaruzzaman has demanded dismissal of SP and all policemen involved in the firing in Forebesganj, Rs 10 lakh to kin of each deceased, Rs 1 lakh to each injured and a job to the family whose lone breadwinner has fell to the police bullets. He also demanded a road to the villages from the government land. “Govt has huge swath of land there. They got it after Bhodan Andoanl when many local landed Muslims donated their land,” he informed. This is a tragic turn of history that Muslim landed people donated land to the government but when members of the same community today demand a road they are given bullets.

Jamaat Islami is planning to give a bandh call against the police firing. “I will visit Araria in two days. If govt does not fulfill the demand we will call a one day hartal and chakka jam at each block and district headquarter against the police action,” Nayyaruzzaman informed.

Nitish kumar should resign

Nitish kumar should resign immidiately.PM PRESIDENT SONIA RAHUL
lALU SHOULD VISIT AND COMPENSATE FOR THE FAMILIES LOSS.
Immidiately arrest the culprits and hang them.
shame on national media specially TimesNow group who give generous
coverage to any news which portrays muslims in bad image and
find no love for the victims of such inhuman crime.

Nitish Govt has shown its ugly face

Nitish govt has shown its ugly face by killing innocent muslims. This teffific incident underlines the brutality and oppression agianst muslims in Bihar in of Janata Dal (United) and Bharatiya Janata party led govt. Is Bihar going to be next Gujrat? Is this horrible act a indication of massacre of muslim in future? All muslim must brace up to combat the communal force and join hands to the secular and liberal people and fight for justice, otherwise I fear, if heaven forbids, that we would be in more trouble in future.

Give and take

Why should Muslims blame the state Govt, which is elected by yourself? You have voted for JDU-BJP(political offshoot of RSS) alliance and initially you were proud of this Govt. What intelligent people understand, when you vote for BJP, you are helping RSS(Brahmanical Terrorists) to come to power.Why couldn't BJP/RSS have even a single MLA/MP from KERALA? Because Keralites are intelligent and highly educated as well.

Second thing we have to understand that Brahmanical Terrorists(RSS) have intruded into all important Govt. machinery such as Indian Police Service(IPS),IAS, IB, RAW, Military etc. Friends of RSS(Brahmanical Terrorists) are meticulously active in IPS and just remember the Mecca Masjid episode or Samjauhta Express Bomb blast.

You Bihari Muslims will be in more trouble in the coming days as long as the Brahmanical Terrorists(RSS) remain in power. What you have to do is , you should not depend on other political parties, you have to have your own political set up as Kerala Muslims have. Of course unity brings you a lot of benefits and oppotunities. That is what Kerala Muslims prove.

You have GIVEN your vote to RSS, now you TAKE what RSS can give you!!!!

Nitish,act now., otherwise you are finished.

I say this without a hitch.Whether the victim is a Hindu or a Muslim or Christian or Jew. He/she is an Indian Citizen. The police are public servants meant to protect citizens, not to kill them at point blank range. IT IS THIS ATTITUDE that provides fuel to movements like Mao-ism. Act now. Dont sleep as the Congress did (Bhagalpur riots). If you imitate Congress., you will meet its fate. It has lost its roots in the HIndi heartland. YOu have a chance. PROVE you are a good , impartial, ADMINISTRATOR. Act without fear or favour., affection or ill-will.

shame onu national media

shame on u national media, ramlila maidan dikhta hai lekin,forbiseganj nahi dikhta hai

BIHAR KILLING

Why the muslims are not still united when they will unit. In spite of 41% population BJP is winning from the area.Its our fault we lack a leader and courage which will come only if you have iman.

Fascist forces

must raise issue from the bottom.... it is real face of fascism. It should not be taken lightly or temporarily. Since last 5 years fascist forces are making hold. They are focussing on this area particularly. Time has come for awakening.

Police may have used access force .But villagers burnt vehicles beat up policemen and fired on them.Police is not mad that they will kill innocent people. Muslim of Purnia Divison are in majority and never fail to attack police force and Himdus in Araria and Kishanganj districts(1992 is good example of this).If Police is wrong they should be punished. Only strong police action can keep them under control. Please publish. Thank You

Dear Sanjeet, Thanks for your comment...people like you breed hatred and probably thats what muslims want and have to understand that there are people like you in our country who thinks that even Infant muslims are at fault...i thanks for posting your comment and call for secular and so called free thinking muslims to say something on your view...for me its time for muslim to rise and pay back with the same brutally to those who have done this unhumane crime...dont kill the innocent but take those down who harms you and thats will be a justified act...

Please publish this one as well...thanks a lot

Killing the muslims

it is great concern for all, and indeed an eye opener to the muslm activists who try all to be secular so that no finger is raised against them and the result is in front of us that people are being killed the infants but no action on part of the state. this is a pure act of state terrorism and is highly condemnable

just inform nitish kumar

this is the second incident within in span of six months. if it will be continued than forget the third term and you will be like a congress after Bhagalpure.

It's payback time for Muslims

It's payback time for Muslims and don't forget that muslims killed Hindus...Nitish is a goat in the skin of jackal if u understand this then u are intelligent or else be maut mare jaoge......

Brother would u give me

Brother would u give me details wherein muslims have killed hindus,

Please Unite

i think the main behind this is the lack of unity in Muslims. In a constituency where Muslim population is more than 40% there should be only one Muslim candidate to stand in the election so that our strength should be represented correctly. It should be duty of elected member to look after the community so that no such incident happens again. They think our life is so cheap so that they easily take it. It is my personal request to look into the unity. May Allah save us and make our sense right so that we can unite.

Is our media is communal too

i am surpriced to see, i used to watch news channels regularly but no media coveage for this incident How strange except Ramdev Ansan, honey feeding, Admitted in ICU and came out of ICU ETC...... all bullshit, ITs realy big same for INDIAN media.

STRENGTHEN THE TCN

UNFORTUNATELY THE PRINT AND ELECTRONIC MEDIA LIES IN THE HANDS OF RABIDLY COMMUNAL. AS A RESULT OF THE SLIGHTEST REAL OR IMAGINARY MISFORTUNE OF THE MEMBERS OF THE MAJORITY COMMUNITY IS EXAGGERATED AND GIVEN WIDEST POSSIBLE PUBLICITY WHILST THE ZULUM ON THE MEMBERS OF THE MINORITY COMMUNITIES GOES EITHER UNPUBLICISED OR GROSSLY TWISTED TO PRESENT IT AS EITHER FALSE OR UNIMPORTANT NEWS. ALAS! WE MUSLIMS DO NOT HAVE A FULL FLEDGED NEWSPAPER OR NEWS CHANNEL. THE ONE AND ONLY ONE INTERNET NEWS AGENCY WHICH PRESENTS THE VIEWS OF THE MINORITIES AND GIVES PUBLICITY TO THEIR PROBLEMS AND ASPIRATIONS - I MEAN THE TCN - IS CARRY ON ITS BENEVOLENT JOB "WITHOUT ACT OF ASSISTANCE, ONE WORD OF ENCOURAGE OF ENCOURAGEMENT OR ONE SMILE OF FAVOUR" THE IMPERATIVE NEED OF THE HOUR IS TO STRENGTHEN THE TCN AMD ESTABLISH A PUCCA HIGH CLASS NEWS CHANNEL OF, BY AND FOR THE MINORITIES.

Can anyone give Nitish Kumars

Can anyone give Nitish Kumars official mail ID

Bihar is quickly becoming

Bihar is becoming a communal state like Gujrat v2.0.
Bihar's Modi is very similar to Gujrat's Modi in process of communalization.
This is going to beginning of end of RSS/BJP/Nitish's rule in Bihar.

Main Tragic is that Fourth Estate is completely silent on issue.
Only few real journalism like Tehelka did justice to incident after reporting in twocircles.

We indians need good journalism like AlJazeera.

Stop this Hindu-Muslim Crap

I am rather surprised or ashamed to see this hindu-muslim crap in this sensitive tragedy too. Few weeks ago in a similar tragedy happened in Noida, UP also, where all villagers were hindu and police were also hindu. In a similar fashion some days ago a innocent boy was killed in pakistan was killed in full day light coldbloodedly by their paramilitary forces, never less to say they both were muslims.

Why we don't want to go to the full detail of the problems and to make the things worse by passing comments like an expert. All this has one thing in common and that is the mentality of few people to think themselves above law. They could be anybody a hindu, muslim, a uppercast person, a lower cast person anybody.

The solution for problems like these are also simple. Just show these traitors what a rule of law could do to them. Put them behind bars and try to book them without any lapse. And my heartiest request to all of you, again stop this hindu-muslim crap.
