Fake encounter: police killed boy; said him naxal


Bastar police allegedly kill an undertrial in a fake encounter after branding him as Naxal in Jagdalpur.
Police claimed that, Arjun Kashyap, was a wanted Naxal and was having bounty of Rs 3 lkah on his head.
However, the Jagdalpur Legal Aid Group, known as 'JagLAG' who is fighting the case of Kashyap has alleged that he was intentionally killed in fake encounter.
30-year-old Arjun Kashyap hails from Chandmeta. He was arrested by police when he was 17 on the accusation of his involvement in ambulance blast case in which five CRPF jawan were killed.
Advocate Ishakhandel of JagLAG said that after the arrest, he was presented in CJM court in Jagdalpur where police had claimed that he is 30-year-old and his father name is Kodi.
On the contrary, his school certificates proofs that he was a school going boy of 17 years and his father’s name is Sulo.
However, with the efforts of JagLAG, the case was transferred to Juvenile Board and he was sent to juvenile home. Later, he was granted bail due to lack of evidences against him.
Infact, the entire chargesheet did not bear his name anywhere only a mention of 30-year-old Arjun was there that too in a confession document of co-accused.
Finally, on December 30, 2015, Arjun was granted bail by the Juvenile Board. Post his bail, he kept coming for hearing of the case.
The next hearing date was fixed on August 31, 2016, but before he could attend that he was allegedly assassinated in fake encounter by Bastar police. It is horrific, added Isha.
Kamal Shukla, the head of Sanyukt Patrakar Sangarsh Surkasha Samiti said, the killing of the innocent tribal guy in a fake encounter under the supervision of IG SRP Kalluri is very much heart rendering and termed it as cold-blooded murder.

He demanded fair probe in the case. The documents provided to Pradesh 18 testifies that Arjun was undertrial guy before Juvenile Board.
However, after the encounter SP Jagdalpur Rajendra Dash claimed that Arjun was a notorious Maoist and Jan Militia Commander of Chandmeta and killed by joint team of DRG and STF in Tulsi Dongri.

He also claimed huge cache of arms, ammunition and material of daily use recovered from his possession.
