India: Cop given award for ‘gallantry’ after torturing adivasi woman

Posted by redpines on February 10, 2012

Last October, Soni Sori, an adivasi schoolteacher was tortured and sexually assaulted by Indian police in the state of Chhattisgarh. Her crime? She was suspected of being a Maoist.

She has struggled to tell her story. Initially, she had  to smuggle handwritten notes out of jail. Media and human rights groups have been denied access to her prison cell.

And now, the thug who is responsible has been given an award for his ‘gallantry’. This is his reward for leading death squads against the CPI(Maoist) and their tribal allies. 

Revolution is necessary.
