Police arrested,tortured adivasis in Gujrat, Now not obeying court orders...

Bilal Kagzi, a human right lawyer is telling us about police atrocities on the tribals of Kaushamba village in Surat,Gujarat. Last month police arrested 15 persons from the village,alleging them of stealing electricity wire. Bilal says that it was a fake case and the villagers were brutally tortured and were given electric shocks in their private parts. Statements of witnesses or victims are yet not recorded by the police even after such directions by the local court. Bilal alleges the local court for being biased which favours police and intently delays such cases. He finds this situation dangerous for our democratic system.
