PUCL condemns ‘attempt’ to link prof with Naxals
RAIPUR: The People’s Union for Civil Liberties (PUCL) has “strongly condemned” the attempt of the Chhattisgarh government “to implicate” Delhi University professor Nandini Sundar and others associated with her for alleged links with Maoists.
Recently, the state police had paraded Congress member Badri Gawde before the media where he claimed to have arranged meetings between Sundar and Maoists. He had claimed that Sundar had formed a committee at the behest of Maoists to oppose a rail and mining project in Kanker.
“The attempt to link Sundar with Maoists comes in the background of proposed iron ore mining in the Rowghat area, which is being opposed by local tribal populations,” PUCL president Prabhakar Sinha said. ENS
