Breaking impunity of police torture

On direction of NHRC and intervention of PVCHR, State Government gave order for compensation. And gave order to collect fund from responsible police officials. It is a good start of justice and breaking impunity.

Sustainable peace, human security,liberty and justice are interlinked


 Apart from facing many challenges, threat and false implication PVCHR team never give up doing intervention and standing with the survivors of human rights violation of the marginalized communities in particular and others in general.  

We never give up because we believe our small effort will change the situation at the grass- root level as earthworm. Our Founder and CEO Lenin Raghuvanshi says, Human security based on inclusiveness and justice is one of main factors for foundation of sustainable peace based on resilience and humane relationship.

We never give up to put our effort for creating society based on equality because hegemonic masculinity is harmful both of men and women. Elimination of hegemonic masculinity is precondition for resilience participatory development and sustainable peace. 

We never give up because we believe that nothing can change without knowledge. We created space for free thoughts- folk school, schools, duniyabi talim in Madarsa and kindergarten teach basic from grassroot level. We give the perspective to the children in children and youth panchayat (groups) and through library in school.

We never give up because PVCHR team firmly adhere its values Justice, Liberty, Equality and Fraternity.

Youth detained for theft dies in custody
Nitasha Natu, TNN | Oct 28, 2013, 06.15 AM IST

MUMBAI: A 22-year-old youth, detained on suspicion of stealing a bag, died while being questioned at the Vanrai police station in Goregaon (E) on Saturday night.

The case will be treated as a custodial death though suspect Manoj Salve died before he could be formally arrested, the police said. Before handing them over to the police, residents had reportedly thrashed Salve, and his associate, Prakash Chavan after catching them in the act at the Nesco ground.

Salve was a Pune resident, while Chavan is from Solapur. On Saturday afternoon, the duo was raoming around at the Nesco ground where an exhibition was going on. "We have learnt that Salve and Chavan were trying to steal a bag and valuables when they were caught red-handed around 3pm. CCTV cameras there also captured their images,"

said DCP Pravinkumar Patil. Witnesses, who nabbed the two, beat them up before calling the security personnel at the ground. The guards took the two to the nearby Vanrai police station.

Even as some of the personnel started checking the CCTV images, other policemen questioned Salve and Chavan. The procedure for their arrests was going on when Salve reportedly complained of uneasiness and dizziness. The police rushed him to a hospital but there, he was pronounced dead.

"The autopsy report will reveal the exact cause of Salve's death. The report is awaited," Patil said. "The tehsildar conducted an inquest panchnama. The crime branch, which will investigate the matter, will record the statements of the police, witnesses and Chavan."

The crime branch will also check if Chavan and Salve had past crime records.

Therefore it is a kind request please take appropriate action at earliest.

Thanking You

Sincerely yours 

Lenin Raghuvanshi
Secretary General

However, on the one hand it is the stand of the DGP, Crime Branch, CID Mumbai that the mother of the deceased had refused to receive the said amount in view of the demand of payment of Rs. 50 Lakhs and job to one of the family member in the police department. On the other hand the mother of the deceased vide her comments wanted a sum of Rs. 50 lakhs as compensation and job in the police department to her daughter.

काशी में हुआ यातना पीडितो का सम्मान समारोह

20 सितम्बरवाराणसी मानवाधिकार जननिगरानी समिति(PVCHR)/जनमित्र न्यास/सावित्री बाई फूले महिला पंचायत के संयुक्त तत्वाधान में यातना पीडितो के संघर्ष के लिए “सम्मान-समारोह” का आयोजन किया गया | जिसमे सोनभद्र के पुलिस यातना के 12 पीडितो और वाराणसी के पुलिस यातनाफर्जी मुठभेड़ व घरेलू हिंसा के 6 पीडितो को सम्मानित किया गया | इस कार्यक्रम के मुख्य अतिथि व वक्ता के रूप में प्रख्यात आध्यात्मिक व सामाज सेवी - स्वामी अग्निवेशप्रधान सार्वदेशिक आर्य प्रतिनिधि सभा - स्वामी आर्यवेशगांधीवादी विचारक एवं सामाजिक कार्यकर्ता - मनोहर मानव थे |
कार्यक्रम की रूपरेखा रखते हुए संस्था के संयोजक डा0 लेनिन रघुवंशी ने बताया कि आज समाज में जिसके साथ भी अन्याय होता है वह एकदम हाशिये पर चला जाता है और उसे अपने घरपरिवार और समाज का भी समर्थन न मिलकर उसे दबाने का प्रयास किया जाता है वो भी जब उत्पीड़क पुलिस या राज्य हो ऐसे में हम ऐसे बहादुर पीडितो का सम्मान कर यह सन्देश समाज में देना चाहते है कि लड़ाई अगर संवैधानिक तरीके से लगातार लड़ी जाय तो न्याय अवश्य मिलता है जिसका उदाहरण आज यहाँ इस कार्यक्रम में उपस्थित ये पीड़ित है जिन्होंने अनेको चुनौतियों के बावजूद भी हिम्मत नहीं हारी और लगातार कानूनी प्रक्रिया के तहत संघर्ष कर अपने आप में एक उदहारण प्रस्तुत किया है ऐसे ही अन्य पीडितो को पूर्व में भी सम्मानित किया जा चूका है जिससे उनके अन्दर एक आत्म विश्वाश बढ़ा है और आज वो एक सामाजिक कार्यकर्ता के रूप में अपने समाज व पीडितो को न्याय दिलाने के संघर्षो में मदद कर रहे है |
कार्यक्रम में उपस्थित स्वामी अग्निवेश ने कहा कि आज मुझे आज इस कार्यक्रम में सम्मिलित होकर बहुत अच्छा लगा की वर्तमान परिस्थिति में यह सम्मान ऐसे पीडितो को दिया जा रहा है जो लगातार अपने परिवेश और संघर्षो के बावजूद न्याय के लिए लगातार संघर्ष करते रहे है इसके साथ ही यह भी एक बहुत बड़ी बात है कि अपने जैसे पीडितो के लिए ये एक आदर्श उदहारण भी प्रस्तुत कर रहे है जिन्हें देखकर इनके जैसे अन्य पीड़ित भी अपने खिलाफ हुए अन्याय के खिलाफ लगातार संवैधानिक तरीके से संघर्ष कर न्याय पाने की प्रक्रिया में लगे है यह बहुत महत्वपूर्ण है कि ऐसे लोग भारत के संविधान और न्याय व्यवस्था में अपना विश्वास रखते है जबकि भारत में आज ऐसा माहौल बना है की व्यक्ति संवैधानिक तरीके से अपनी बात रखता है तो कुछ फासीवादी ताकते उनके ऊपर हमला कर उनकी आवाज को दबाने का प्रयास करते है |इसका ज्वलंत उदहारण मै खुद हूँ कि इधर बीच मेरे ऊपर फासीवादी ताकतों ने कई बार मेरे ऊपर हमला करवाकर मेरी आवाज को दबाने का प्रयास किया है साथ ही उन्होंने यह भी साझा किया कि जो हमारे वेद की मूल भावना बसुधैव कुटुम्बकम है उसकी तरफ समाज को लौटना पड़ेगा तभी हम समाज के सर्वांगीण विकास की और बढ़ सकते है |
इसके साथ ही कार्यक्रम में उपस्थित एक अन्य पीड़ित 9 वर्षीय आकाश चौधरी की माँ ने अपनी स्व-व्यथा कथा बताते हुए कहा कि पिछले 4 वर्षो से वो लगातार न्याय के लिए संघर्ष कर रही थी आज उसे न्याय मिला मेरे बेटे आकाश चौधरी के पैर का इलाज कराने के लिए जब मै शिव प्रसाद गुप्त अस्पताल में गयी तो वहां पर डाक्टरों और एक कम्पाउण्डर की लापरवाही से मेरे बच्चे का पैर काटना पडा जिसके बाद मै लगातार अपने बच्चे के इलाज के लिए न्याय की गुहार लगाती रही पर संस्था की पैरवी के कारण आज मेरे बच्चे के इलाज के लिए 2 लाख रुपये सरकार से मिला है और साथ ही वो कम्पाउण्डर निलंबित हुआ और उसके ऊपर मुकदमा चल रहा है यह न्याय एक लम्बे संघर्ष के बाद मुझे मिला |  
साथ अन्य पीडितो ने भी अपने ऊपर हुए अन्याय को लोगो के समक्ष साझा किया और यह भी बताया कि इस पीड़ा से निकालने के लिए हमें पारिवारिक और सामाजिक स्तर पर कितना संघर्ष करना पड़ा साथ ही यह भी बताया कि न्याय मिलने के बाद एक आत्म संतुष्टि और आत्म विश्वाश जो हमें प्राप्त हुआ उसने पिछले किये गए संघर्षो को एक सुखद क्षण में परिवर्तित कर दिया और यह भी विश्वाश बढ़ा की न्याय पाने के प्रक्रिया लम्बी तो हो सकती है लेकिन जीत हमेशा न्याय की ही होती है आज इस कार्यक्रम के द्वारा जो हमें सम्मान प्राप्त हुआ है वो हमारे इरादों को और मजबूती प्रदान करेगा जिससे आगे हमें संघर्ष करने की हिम्मत देता रहेगा साथ ही हम अन्य पीडितो के संघर्षो की लड़ाई में अपना सहयोग देते रहेंगे |
इस कार्यक्रम में वाराणसी और सोनभद्र से पीडितो के आलावा और भी नागर समाज के सैकड़ो लोग उपस्थित हुए |
