Raipur : Free Run for An Absconder.

Dantewada : Accused roam freely, Victims in custody”, covered the drama of an accused and Salwa Judum leader, Soyam Mukka, freely moving around in Dantewada on 6th January 2010 right in the presence of police. Soyam Mukka was one of the four leaders who were leading a group of Salwa Judum cadres reconstituted under the banner of Ma Danteshwari Swabhimani Adivasi Manch (MDSAM). This brand new outfit was formed only a month earlier with the specific intent of targeting Vanvasi Chetna Ashram, who had organized a peace march starting on 14th December that would have passed through some two dozen odd villages that had been plundered and burned by Salwa Judum. The purpose of the foot march was to instill confidence among the terrified tribal residents who had run away into the nearby forests & were hiding there, and to encourage them to return to their villages and lands. MDSAM has now metamorphosed into a platform to take on activists, researchers, academics, scholars and journalists who want to visit Bastar division of Chhattisgarh State for a fact finding mission in the wake of ‘Operation Green Hunt’.

Soyam Mukka has been declared on 10th December 2009, around the time MDSAM was formed, an absconder and a non-bailable arrest warrant has been issued for him by Shri Sharad Gupta, Sessions Court Judge – South Bastar, Dantewada. Ironically, not only he was allowed to lead the mob that pelted eggs, muck and tomatoes on the activists lead by Medha Patkar & Sandeep Pande at Dantewada, but he seems to roam around freely even in the state capital Raipur. In fact, he was at the press conference on 16th January 2010 in the Raipur Press Club that was also addressed by his colleagues Chhavindra Karma, Chaitram Atami and Sukhdev Tati.
The police are supposed to execute the arrest warrant and to arraign the accused before the court, but in Chhattisgarh, police appear to be protecting the absconders and accused at the direction of highest levels in administration. In the above photograph a youth in civies with a gun is clearly seen behind Chhavindra Karma, son of founder of Salwa Judum and Congress leader (ex-CPI) Mahendra Karma. Who is the gunman? – Police in plain clothes, Special Police Officer, or a Salwa Judum vigilante. When a person who is to be arrested as per law and produced before court gets police protection to roam freely; Isn’t it a breakdown of constitutional machinery in the state

    In the Hindi newspaper that you have posted it is Soyam Huka whereas you are saying Soyam Mukka, it is amusing to see that in your hate you are seeing Soyam Mukka everywhere? As an aside, VCA will naturally ask for this guy to go to jail since he is a tribal fighting naxal terrorism. Court documents have shown commie 'intellectuals', who are naxal sympathizers, have filed this allegation against him (that is if he is the right person). Other cases of NGOs filing wrongful court cases have also come to light so anybody reading this has to be 'open minded' in forming an opinion.

    There are things called Reporting Errors, Typos, etc. in newspaper reports or any writings. The truth is out there for seekers.

    Least you could have done is corrected it since you are quoting the newspaper article as not everyone is antaryami like you.

    Sadanand ji, bura mat maan na par lagta hai lefties ke graha khraab chal rahe hain. Read on and then with a straight face repeat after me in a fair and balanced way – accused roams freely.—A Delhi court today issued a notice to Narmada Bachao Andolan (NBA) leader Medha Patkar asking her why she would not be prosecuted for perjury for allegedly filing fake medical certificate to seek exemption from personal appearance in two criminal defamation cases.http://www.ptinews.com/news/506924_Court-notice-to-Medha-Patkar-in-defamation-cases—Your views are most welcome esp on the fake medical certificate and a lack of morals amongst our elites.

    V K Saxena had filed the earlier case (see post http://searchlight-is-on .blogspot.com/2010/01/spreading-slander-through-endless.html)that was thrown out by the Supreme court as it was not based on facts and was motivated by personal animosity.Let the Court do its job, give the verdict and then we will see. When the verdict comes be prepared to magnanimously swallow all the bitter words that you have been spouting.

  6. triveni Says:

    Sadanand ji, you wrote:"When the verdict comes be prepared to magnanimously swallow all the bitter words that you have been spouting."One very important lesson i've learned from commie thugs is – if the court verdict is in my favour, i'll hail the judiciary, constitution etc. If not, i'll paint judges as naxal supporters, use constitution as toilet paper and blame communist/socialist thug infiltration in courts. Frankly, don't hold your breath for 'glowing' words.

  7. triveni Says:

    You missed this where your precious words are most needed – "Your views are most welcome esp on the fake medical certificate and a lack of morals amongst our elites." Defamation case and perjury are not one and the same, sir. Submitting fake medical certificate is perjury i.e. deliberate lying under oath and will be independent of the defamation cases.

  8. Sadanand Says:

    Court's notice is for perjury for "allegedly" filing fake medical certificate. Let court decide on that.

  9. triveni Says:

    Wah sir, kudos for following the due process of the law. Stingy explanations are often wrong. Why is the same(wait for the court verdict) overlooked in the Soyam Mukka case and let the law take its own course? Technically, Patkar can also be described as an absconder. One law for elites like Patkar and other for common man/tribal, double standards.

  10. Sadanand Says:

    court has issued a non-bailable arrest warrant against Soyam Mukka after declaring him absconder. It is duty of the police to arrest him and produce before the judge. please do read carefully & understand the issue once in a while at least. "Technically" you can say whatever comes to your mind and that is what you are doing.

  11. triveni Says:

    Sadanand ji, why are you people so eager to see that police do their work. Let the due process take place, why are you getting hyper over it? Ajmal Kasab is guilty, everybody knows it, should we take him out of jail and hang him since we are certain of his crime.Hundreds of rape cases will be there in Chattisgarh but why is this case being selectively pursued? It is because Soyam is a Salwa Judum leader and a thorn in the naxal side. The naxal sympathizers have not suddenly woken up to atrocities on women. They will never file petitions against naxal men who rape their female cadre members and when the same naxal rape tribals, overground supporters will be the first to look the other way. That is expected since they are called naxal overground supporters for a reason but this ingenious scheme, of running with the hares(activist speaking for tribals even when tribals are telling them to get out) and hunting with hounds(deafening silence on naxal atrocities), is a little difficult for public to grasp but aam aadmi does see the reality albeit a little late.
