Lt. Col. Purohit is Being Tortured

Translated from Dainik Jagaran newspaper:

Police is physically torturing Lt. Col. Srikant Purohit who has been arrested for his alleged role in Malegaon blasts. The ATS officials have broken his fingers during interrogation. There are wounds all over his body. This charge has been filed by Purohit’s father-in-law in the court of the Chief Judicial Magistrate of Nasik. He has appealed to the court to get Purohit released from police custody as there is absolutely no evidence against him.

It seems all “human rights activists” have done the dissappearing act. They will appear again when a Muslim gets arrested after a bomb blast. But what more can be expected from people whose pay cheques are posted from outside the borders of this country?

    In November 2008, it was reported that Indian officials suspected the attacks were linked to Prasad Shrikant Purohit, an Indian army officer and member of Hindu nationalist group ABHINAV BHARAT.
    Purohit himself claimed that he had “INFILTERATED” the ABHINAV BHARAT and he was only doing his job.
    During an army’s Court of Inquiry as many as 59 witnesses stated to the court that Purohit was doing his job (of gathering intelligence inputs) by “INFILTRATING EXTREMIST ORGANIZATIONS ” .
    OFFICERS HAVE TESTIFIED THAT HE WAS DOING WHAT HE WAS ASKED TO DO AS A MILITARY INTELLIGENCE MAN.

      Abhinav Bharat can refer to two organizations one of which is an Hindu nationalist organisation based mainly in Maharashtra in India. The Hindu nationalist organization gained prominence when its members were arrested for allegedly perpetrating the Malegoan bombing.
      In its first appearance, the group, born before Independence, was led by Vinayak Savarkar. The group was born again in another form decades after partition , Abhinav Bharat – the Hindu nationalist organization was born in 2007.
      The Hindu nationalist organization is led and presided by Savarkar’s granddaughter, Himani Savarkar.
      She is also related to Nathuram Godse, the man who assassinated M K Gandhi on 30 January 1948.
