Testimony

I am MANISH K BAINIWAL working as GENERAL MANAGER, PEC Ltd.(A Government of India Undertaking - under Ministry of Commerce)

High Caste people's atrocities & discrimination is not only victimising rural & poor dalits (Scheduled Castes & Scheduled Tribes); the unfortunate deeply rooted tendencies to treat the dalits as lower grade citizens are prevalent in highly advanced corporate & bureaucratic society also and equally serious & inhuman as against the rural & poor dalits.

In my case severe harassment is being inflicted against me in the white collar high profile indian society emanating from these practices, where torture goes on unstopped; and my all complaints to various government authorities have so far gone unheard without action to restrain the continuing torture. Due to no action from anywhere on my complaints, conspired harassment & caste hatred & personal harm is being inflicted repeatedly and increasingly.

Members of depressed castes (dalit communities) who come to senior positions in government & public sector organisations after great struggle, are made easy target by the high caste oppressors, like in my case. The casteist elements dominating the bureaucracy at official positions make the life difficult for them and put all efforts to curb their growth through vicious tricks. This inhuman discrimination & harassment is horrible when someone (SC/ST executive) progresses to the senior position at an early age through his hard work, as in my case.

In my case, the torture goes on unstopped despite the case going upto Supreme Court of India & National Commission for Scheduled Castes & also to other government authorities (pending with NCSC since Sep,2008) ; and therefore casteist management led by Chairman-cum-Managing Director of the organisation enjoying full liberty & impunity to effect all sorts of atrocities against a dalit (Scheduled Caste) employee (me) who dared to complaint against the caste discrimination practiced by them.

I work as a General Manager in a government of India organisation & was posted at New Delhi head office till December,2009 and belong to Scheduled Caste category. In my case, I am a victim of the caste based tendencies of the top officers of the organisation, who do not want any dalit (scheduled caste) officer, at any cost, at the controlling positions in the organisation. In fact, in this govt organisation, some high caste top officials are freely acting as the casteist criminals, misusing their high official positions for caste hatred & caste harassment, and therefore they do not allow any SC/ST senior official to work in controlling position at Delhi Head Office of this organisation (either they force such dalit official to sit idle without important work, or they transfer him outstation arbitrarily). This company is in the business of international trade. Due to the influential positions of high casteist officials, there is no check or restraint over their caste harassment practice, by the Ministry of Commerce & Industry, under whom this company operates. So, Ministry indirectly supports this caste harassments.

As I rose to senior levels at an early age and also became the senior most SC officer at the organisation's head quarters, I became the target of their caste hatred generated conspired actions aimed to harm my career. Since I belong to the most backward & helpless dalit community (Valmiki community or scavenger community), casteist oppressors have found me as easy target. People of such castes (considered to be most backward & weakest caste) who come to senior positions after great struggle, are made easy target by the high caste oppressors, like in my case.

I have an excellent service record and also have all the required qualifications (Bachelor of Engineering - Mechanical & MBA) & job experience to handle any responsibility in the organisation. I have also served as I.E.S. (Indian Engineering Services) which is the highest ranked government service for engineers in India . It was due to my performance that in this organisation became General Manager at an early age of 39 years in 2008. Since I attained senior positions (since year 2003-2004), biased management started various mischievous tricks to keep me away from the responsible/controlling positions. They comprise of some top officials of the organisation working like a communal gang or anti-SC/ST gang (led by CMD (Chairman-cum-Managing Director) of the organisation in these acts) and have been using various tricks to create fake & misrepresented grounds to discriminate against me and to cause torture (physically as well as mentally) and humiliations.

Whenever I have questioned these mala-fide actions & plans, they have humiliated & threatened me also pointing out my caste & category; and also harmed me at every opportunity. For last few years, they have made me sit idle without work, in order to implement their caste based conspiracy to dissociate me from this organisation’s business, treating me as untouchable in a government organisation. Such tendencies are the violation of Constitution of India and also SC/ST (Prevention Of Atrocities) Act but these oppressors are freely carrying out these activities against me in open violation of all laws despite being government officials. They have no fear of any law or any government authority and carry out these inhuman misdeeds unabated. Even they forced me to sit/work in a room for many months in the office which was in dangerous working conditions (with seepage affected damaged ceiling / false ceiling) and also dirty & foul smelling due to severe seepage, where the false ceiling fell twice and I escaped only luckily on two occasions. On another occasion, in order to humiliate me and due to their caste hatred they performed "Puja" (religious worship ceremony, aimed to purify something/some place considered to be untouchable & hated) at the place (hall) in the office where I used to sit and to which they/their accomplice officials were shifting and the three high caste officials of perpetrators’ gang were going to occupy the three rooms in that hall; therefore they purified that place by "Puja" because they considered that place as impure & untouchable due to having been used by a harassed victimized dalit officer.

On the same occasion to harass me in the worst way they shifted me from the bigger room in that hall to a smaller room to accommodate a high caste official (of same rank as mine) in the bigger room and also broke open my room to perform "puja" there too. To further harass I was shifted to a room which was even smaller than the adjacent room of my junior. Humiliating publicly and encouraging other employees to humiliate me has been a regular feature. Discriminations & harassment in my official functioning and in my career development is a common thing for them. Freely they have been flouting the rules/laws, misrepresenting the facts, concealing the facts, creating fake documents to create false grounds to harm me personally and to harm my official functioning at the workplace, misusing their influential official positions. But no authority listens to my complaints against this torture & their misdeeds & crimes. This is further painful that the most important government authority in India responsible for protection against these atrocities - National Commission for Scheduled Castes (NCSC), has not given the justice despite time taking repeated correspondence with them and despite being reported about every misdeed of perpetrators. On repeated persuasions, one "Hearing" & further "Police (Vigilance) Inquiry" (by NCSC) have been conducted, but no justice inspite of this because under the unfair influence of perpetrators, NCSC & Police have been trying to twist the case in their favour, ignoring all the facts & evidences of their misdeeds/atrocities. NCSC & Police also keep ignoring the complaints of our organisation’s SC/ST Employees Welfare Association against the widespread caste harassment & discrimination by the said officials (oppressors). Despite directions by National Commission for SC, to (in the Hearing in Nov,2008)

to stop discrimination & to treat me fairly, oppressors did not stop; rather increasingly harassed me and NCSC did not hear & acted on my complaints of further increased harassment. Thereafter, National Commission unfairly tried to close the case, even before getting the Police Inquiry Report, in August,2009 by making unfair non-relevant basis that "there is no violation of reservation & service safeguard rules for scheduled castes" (although my complaint is against the torture, untouchability, harassment & discrimination; and does not pertain to reservation & service safeguard rules). Also surprisingly, this letter NCSC issued through their SSW Wing which does not deal atrocities & harassment matters (hence stands invalid for my case), whereas my matter is being dealt by their other wing (APCR Wing) which deals with atrocities (and is still pending & being dealt without justice and any control on continuing harassment by oppressors).

Against my application for information under RTI Act (Right To Information Act), NCSC & Police did not give satisfactory replies and denied requested information on my case and therefore I had to appeal to CIC (Central Information Commission) to obtain the relevant information & documents from NCSC files. However it clarifies how the protecter of dalits (NCSC) favour oppressors torturing innocent dalit officers and fools the victim by playing unfair tricks with him & twisting his case in oppressors' favour. Also NCSC tried to endorse the false misrepresented statements against me by the accused people instead of considering the facts submitted by me. To my replies on such unfair dealings by NCSC and to my repeated requests to restrain the continuing atrocities, NCSC does not respond. Due to such irresponsible & unfair approach of NCSC, the Vigilance Inquiry by Delhi Police on NCSC's order, to inquire the atrocities has been totally unfairly & one sided, conducted under connivance between police & oppressors. Like NCSC, Police has also tried to ignore, hide & twist the facts related to atrocities and to highlight the false misrepresented statements by the accused. The Police Inquiry was conducted completely according to wishes of the accused people. Police did not inquire on many incidents of hate & atrocities reported by me, like, oppressors unlawfully influencing the police inquiry by forcing the SC/ST/OBC employees to sign statements in their favour in the form of Commendation Certificates (I & also SC/ST Emplyees Association of our organization reported this incident to police alongwith the documentary evidences, but police unfairly ignored this every time). I have sent the appropriate reply (objections) to the NCSC exposing all this improperness & unfairness in the police inquiry & the oppressors misdeeds/atrocities left uninquired by the police, but police could not reply till date & misrepresent the facts repeatedly according to the wishes of perpetrators (police keep sending only false & divergent replies). Police has not filed the FIR till date. In fact Police is acting as one of the oppressors, instead of being inquiring or law enforcement agency. Matter is still with NCSC and investigations are in progress by NCSC's APCR Section, but no justice even after more than 2.5 years of my complaint. Encouraged by the situation of no justice from anywhere, management has issued transfer order for my transfer from Delhi to Hyderabad on 4.12.2009 ( Hyderabad is 1700 km away from Delhi with 28 hours rail journey). For the transfer they chose the occasion when my daughter & myself were ill and issued the transfer order without relieving order in violation of Government rules. I had no option but to file a court case in Delhi High Court, with the hope that indian judiciary is free from bias and will get justice. However I faced indifferent attitudes there too. I did not get Stay or Abeyance on harassment transfer. High Court rejected the stay on the basis of false grounds given by the management (oppressors) that I have been relieved (in fact I was not relieved which was informed to court under my writ petition but court did not notice this fact & also did not notice the facts of caste harassment & discrimination and the fact that I was transferred in total discrimination since other high caste officers of my rank are never transferred out of station & oppressors have been misusing the situation of the organization having no transfer policy to harass mostly SC/ST employees, by arbitrary transfers. Also High Court did not notice that I was transferred illegally during the pendency of the NCSC investigations against perpetrators).

I joined the transfer in March,2010. Before that I was on medical leave since the transfer. Fearless of any law of the country, casteist management continue using the various harassment methods and tactics to spoil my record. In disregard to any law I am posted at Hyderabad branch without my requirement there since there is no work there & also adequate resources/staff/office items for the work are not intentionally provided by oppressors with the aim to harm my official functioning there too and hence to harm my service record. Also a senior officer of GM level is not required at all there but still I was transferred and court did not notice this fact too. Obviously that place (Hyderabad office) is maintained by the casteist management as a place, exclusively for harassment of dalits, as all employees posted there are dalits & OBC ( 3 are SC/ST and 1 is OBC); also that place being maintained in shameful conditions without basic facilities required for executives (due to perpetrator's intentions of harassment & humiliation). I have also experienced the legal system of India and worried how legal system will help which has the highest responsibility to provide justice without any partiality and who are called "my lord" only because all should be equal for them............!! One of the high court judge even resorted to biased discriminatory behaviour in the court hearings even made casteist remarks. So, the Judge himself acted as perpetrator. I have complained against him in the Ministry of Law & Justice and action on the complaint is pending. To know about the action taken on my complaint against the judge, I had to go upto CIC under the RTI Act, where CIC directed the CPIO (Central Public Information Officer) of the Ministry of Law & Justice, to forward my complaint to the concerned authorities. Even after no action informed to me, after the CPIO/Deptt of Justice forwarded my complaint to Chief Justice of Delhi High Court for action.view by him; hence, I had to again send RTI Appeal to CIC against the public information authorities of both (Deptt of Justice & Delhi High Court).After I did not get the justice due to insensitiveness of judiciary at high court, I went to Supreme Court but did not get justice from there, where my grievances of discrimination & caste harassment remained unaddressed; and court did not notice arbitrariness and misuse of their official position in the Government by the oppressors. In the process and Supreme Court’s decision not going in my favour, casteist management has got highly encouraged to take the revenge for court cases & complaints, by torturing me by all sorts of conspired harassment actions.

They are bent upon to spoil my service record and to implicate me in false & fake charges ; and there is nobody whom I can complaint against this inhuman harassment & atrocities (atrocities - in return of my long dedicated performance for the organisation/government). Under the circumstances, I am forced to be kept transferred at the far-off place from my family, for the whole life, since there are no transfer rules / transfer policy in this organisation and casteist management misuse this position to victimise the selected employees (mostly SC/ST employees on proportional basis) to transfer them for their whole service period; and no court of law asked them on this irregularity & arbitrary functioning); and also I am exposed to further unlawful arbitrary revengeful torture under this situation. The Question is:- When the qualified & well income people & high officials can not get justice from anywhere and casteists enjoy the full liberty to torture them even in the government organisations based in the Capital of India, how the poor & weak ordinary dalits will get justice and from where ?
After Supreme Court decision on 5th July,2010 oppressors got highly emboldened and started repeated harassment actions like they have the license to harass me. Repeated harassment, like, not sanctioning my medical leaves; withdrawing my statutory delegated powers for sanctioning my tours; causing heavy financial losses by reducing my PRP(performance related pay) by forcibly downgarading my performance by cutting off inputs required for work/performance (like - staff, office equipments, official tours, trainings, proper work allocation etc), denying the relevant trainings; denying the officially required information for my official functioning; making my subordinates work against me; unfairly not considering my claim for the vacant position recently created at my home town station (Delhi) & unfairly giving charge of that position to other high caste official unlawfully without any office order and also creation of fake documents for that purpose; creating fake documents to unfairly deny me the essentially required trainings; & serving the memo with fake charges ; not writing my CR for year 2009-10 till date (not sending to me self-appraisal form or such other part of CR to be filled/signed by me), denying the essential resources for my official functioning, like- staff, furniture, office equipment hence forcing to work in a shameful working conditions with rotten & broken furniture in insufficient quantity, despite being an international trade company requiring highest standard ambience / facilities / furniture which it is in fact maintaining in other office premises but denying to my office due to caste hatred; also forcing such sub-standard conditions for official dormitory in Hyderabad by denying facilities & upgradation.
In fact oppressors maintain this branch office only for harassment of SC/ST/OBC employees posted here not for organisation's business/benefit, since all 4 employees posted here are only SC/ST/OBC; hence these casteist bureaucrats are practicing caste harassment by maintaining exclusive harassment/torture places using govt funds (all posted out of station with no limit specified for their transfer period in the absence of transfer policy/rules, hence harassment postings for all).

Ministry of Commerce & Industry, which is the controlling Ministry of this organization, has been regularly informed on the repeated caste harassment taking place but they have never exercised any restraint / check over the casteist oppressors. Ministry has the duty to check such inhuman caste discrimination in the organizations working under them, but in this case of caste harassment they only act as mute spectator, and hence indirectly support oppressors.

Recently I filed the court cases in Delhi High Court against the casteist officials' extreme unlawful harassment action of making my medical leave unauthorised, deducting my salary on this false ground, stopping my due annual increment & serving memo with fake charges; Court has served notice to them and has asked them to submit their counter reply. (In the latest CIC order dt.31.12.10 against my RTI application dt.7.7.10 for knowing the reasons for delay in sanction of my medical leave, CIC has ordered the oppressors to allow me the inspection of their records because they were denying me the information sought under my RTI application) . Despitr CIC order,accused officials again denied the inspection of records requested by me during my leave in Delhi in 17-21 January,11, due to which I had to again send the RTI Appeal to CIC on 19.1.11. I could inspect the records during my leave but, in order to michievously deny inspection, oppressors asked me to inspect after this period and at the same time also sent some documents (stated to be information required under my RTI appeal/application), which were not complying to RTI requirements). Also in my RTI appeal dt.19.1.11 I have requested CIC to impose penalty on them for intentional harassment to me in RTI matter & for violation of RTI rules.
Again on 15.4.2011 the oppressors, denied required information against my RTI application dt.18.3.11, where I sought the relevant information after I was heavily harmed financially by unfairly & mischievously reducing my PRP (performance related pay) in Feb,2011 by unfairly reducing my CR Rating ; Again I had to send the RTI Appeal.

I wait how court will decide this time ! I am fighting against the harassment in the court and hope one day I will get justice (though so far I have experienced that judiciary is insensitive in the caste atrocities matters and treats victim/complainant like culprit and oppressor like complainant). The case given here is only in brief. In fact there is a long list of irregularities, misdeeds, falsifications, misrepresentation, inventions of false grounds, concealments committed by the oppressors (casteist management), from which courts, SC Commission & authorities have constantly turned a blind eye. This can be explained through detailed discussions or through documents.

This is an international trade company of Govt Of India where I work. And during my service there I gained expertise in handling the company's business (although always made to work with the minimum possible resources & facilities & support due to general attitude of caseist people against SC/ST) and therefore, was getting in the line to reach the controlling positions of the company in due course of time. This is the reason, conspiracies & harassment started by casteist CMD & his accomplices to prevent such prospects for a Dalit, at any cost.

In this company no other high caste officer of my rank or above has been transferred outstation second time. In fact except some rare exceptions all of them are never transferred through out their service. But I have been transferred second time. Earlier I was transferred to Chennai (in 1998). Only one other SC GM (now CGM) in this company was also transferred outside Delhi earlier. I have been the senior most SC (dalit) officer at Delhi HQ with further scope of growth which was not tolerable to casteist management officials, hence they conspired to harass & harm me.

In fact these casteist official’s approach of discrimination & harassment against me has now taken the form of my destruction, as nobody in the whole system checks these inhuman abuses.I need justice against the continuing unchecked inhuman caste hatred motivated torture & harassment.

Right to live with dignity, internally displacement, intimidation ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………............................................

26th May, 2011

Peoples’ Vigilance Committee on Human Rights (PVCHR) came to know through testimony taken by the activists working for RCT-PVCHR initiative for testimonial Therapy in Tanda Block of Ambedkar Nagar district in Uttar Pradesh, India that 76 families are facing flood erosion in Chinatura village of Ambedkar Nagar district of Uttar Pradesh.

Case detail:
My name is Ram Kripal, age 50 years. I am resident of village Chintaura, Post – Mubarakpur, Tehsil – Tanda of Ambedkar Nagar district of Uttar Pradesh. I manage the need of my family by working as a labour and driving rickshaw. We were residents of Manjhi, but settled down here due to the river to be flooded during the rainy season and our fields and villages were drowned. At that time we had to flee.

In 1975 we met with the Sub Divisional Magistrate (SDM) Baba Hardev and say our problem to them. Immediately 76 families settled down in Chintaura one km away on vacant government land, but we did not found the land paper. Three year before in year 2007 in the southern part of our village there was the land of Aftab. He made sale deed of 1 biswa of land to Dheeraj, Orderly of SDM and 1 ½ Biswa to Ashok Prakash Gupta, LIC agent. They fenced the ground and open the door near to our hut. I opposed and Dheeraj and Om Prakash started to use bad words. Dheeraj being orderly of the SDM called police to betrayed me. Police came and took me holding for night and I was released on the next day morning. I several times went to the jail. My family members used to make call to Shankha Lal Manjhi, Member of Parliament and every time I was released due to the influence of M.P. instead of misbehaving police provide support to me. They took grabbed me in custody due to pressure of SDM. Villagers laugh on me as I was detained several times. They threat me for the life and pressurized to vacate the land. but I not afraid, I dare to fight and filed the case of the land in the office of S D M and am fighting case. I always worried and I need not even come at night. For this land I spent more than 47000/- so I had to face much difficulty.

On August 9, 2010 at 12 noon endurance (orderly) and Om Prakash brings to 20 people and demolished my hut with the tractor. In the hut they spoil all the essential day to day items. When I protested they started to threaten me. I immediately gave application to District Magistrate (DM) and he assures for the spot check, but till now no action taken by him. Three days later I gave application to SDM. SDM taking the side of Orderly said “settle down I will give you one biswa land somewhere else. After ''hearing this I was shocked. Again on 18 August, 2010 I met with the SDM he sent me with the Lekhpal and Tehsildar to see the land. Instead of land they show me pit. I refused to take the land.

More information about Chintaura:

Dear Sir/Madam,

I want to bring in your kind consideration about the internal displacement of villagers of Chintaura, Post – Mubarakpur, Tehsil – Tanda of Ambedkar Nagar district of Uttar Pradesh.

Police came and took him holding for night and he was released on the next day morning.

Ram Kripal several times went to the jail. His family members used to make call to Shankha Lal Manjhi, Member of Parliament and every time he was released due to the influence of Member of Parliament. Instead of misbehaving police provide support to him. They grabbed him in custody due to pressure of Sub Divisional Magistrate (SDM). Villagers laugh on Ram Kripal as he was detained several times. They threat him for the life and pressurized to vacate the land. But he did not afraid, he dare to fight and filed the case of the land in the office of S. D. M and am fighting case. I always worried and I need not even come at night.

विस्थापन के दर्द की कहानी



मेरा नाम रामकृपाल (उम्र-50 वर्श), पुत्र-स्व0 राम अवध, ग्राम-चिंतौरा, पोस्ट-मुबारकपुर, तहसील-टांडा, जिला-अम्बेडकर नगर (उ0प्र0) का निवासी हूँ। मै पढ़ा लिखा नही हूँ, मेरी पत्नी का नाम कलावती है। मेरी दो लड़किया मीरा (उम्र-30 वर्श) और मीना (उम्र-15 वर्श) व एक लड़का धमेन्द्र (उम्र-17 वर्श) के है। मैं मजदूरी व रिक्षा चलाकर अपने परिवार को चलाता हूँ।

हम लोग मांझा के निवासी थे, लेकिन वहाँ नदी के किनारे बसे होने के कारण बरसात के समय में नदी के बाढ़ आ जाने के वजह से हमारा खेत व गाँव डूब जाता था। उस समय हम लोगो को ईधर-उधर भागना पड़ता था। उसी समय उन्नीस सौ पचहत्तर में हमारे तहसील के एस0डी0एम0 बाबा हरदेव सिंह से हम लोग मिले और अपनी समस्या को कहे। जिस पर एस0डी0एम0 साहब ने तत्काल उसी समय हम लोगो को अपने गाँव से एक कि0मी0 दूर चिंतौरा में खाली सरकारी जमीन पर छिहत्तर माँझी परिवारो को बसाए, किन्तु किसी को जमीन का कागज नही मिला था। हम लोग वहाँ झोपड़ी बनाकर रह रहे थे।

आज से तीन वर्ष पहले सन् दो हजार सात में हमारी झोपड़ी के दक्खीन में आफताब की जमीन थी, जिनकी जमीन एस0डी0एम0 के अर्दली धीरज एक बिस्वा व एल0आई0सी0 के एजेन्ट ओम प्रकाश गुप्ता ने डेढ़ बिस्वा बैनाम कराए। जमीन को घेरवाकर हमारी झोपड़ी की ओर अपनी बाउन्ड्री का दरवाजा खोल दिए। जिस पर मैने विरोध किया की हमारे झोपड़ी की ओर दरवाजा क्यो खोल रहे है। तब धीरज व ओम प्रकाश द्वारा मुझे भद्दी-भद्दी गालियां दिया जाने लगा और धीरज ने एस0डी0एम0 का अर्दली होने के कारण पुलिस को फोन करके मुझे पकड़वा दिया। पुलिस आयी और मुझे पकड़कर थाने ले गयी रातभर मुझे थाने में रखने के बाद सुबह छोड़ा। इस प्रकार मुझे एस0डी0एम0 के अर्दली धीरज व ओमप्रकाश ने सात बार जेल भेजवाया लेकिन मेरे घर वाले हमारे क्षेत्र के सांसद शंखलाल मांझी के यहाँ फोन कर देते थे और मुझे सांसद जी छुड़वा देते थे। पुलिस वाले न मुझे गाली देते, न मारते थे, बल्कि मेरा सहयोग करते थे। केवल एस0डी0एम0 के दबाव में आकर मुझे पकड़कर लाते थे। बार-बार पुलिस वालों के पकड़कर थाने लाने के वजह से गाँव वाले मेरी हँसी लेते थे। मुझे जान से मारने की धमकी दिया और जमीन छोड़कर भाग जाने को कहाँ, लेकिन मैं डरा नही, मैं हिम्मत करके लड़ता रहा और जमीन का मुकदमा मैंने एस0डी0एम0 के यहाँ कर दिया और मुकदमा लड़ रहा हूँ। मुझे हमेशा चिंता रहती है और रात में नीद भी नही आती है। इस जमीन के लिए मैं कुल 47,000/- रु0 से अधिक दिया, जिससे मुझे काफी दिक्कत का सामना करना पड़ता था।

9 अगस्त, 2010 को दोपहर 12 बजे धीरज (अर्दली) व ओम प्रकाश ने करीब 20 की संख्या में लोगों को लेकर आए और मेरी झोपड़ी को ट्रैक्टर से गिरवा दिए। झोपड़ी के अन्दर चुल्हा, बारह हजार ईटा, गद्दा, लकड़ी, बास, खटीया आदि पर मिट्टी गिरवाकर पटवा दिए। जब मैने विरोध किया तो मुझे धमकी देने लगे। मैंने उसी दिन तुरन्त डी0एम0 को प्रार्थना पत्र दिया। डी0एम0 ने मौके की जाँच का आश्वासन दिया, किन्तु कोई जाँच नही हुयी। तीन दिन बाद मैं एस0डी0एम0 के यहाँ प्रार्थना पत्र दिया। जिस पर एस0डी0एम0 ने अर्दली धीरज का पक्ष लेते हुए बोले-‘‘तुम समझौता कर लो, मंै तुम्हे एक बिस्वा जमीन कही दिलवा दूँगा।’’ यह सुनकर मै सन्न रह गया। दिनांक 18 अगस्त, 2010 को एस0डी0एम0 से पुनः मिला तो उन्होंने तहसीलदार व लेखपाल के साथ मुझे जमीन देखने के लिए भेज दिए। मुझे जमीन के जगह गड्ढ़ा दिखाया गया। मैने वह जमीन लेने से इन्कार कर दिया।

आज यह घटना सुनाकर मुझे अच्छा लग रहा है। मुझे मेरी जमीन मिले और मेरे साथ न्याय हो।

महिला उत्पीड़न मामले पर एसपी गंभीर

सोनभद्र

Friday, May 20, 2011 | Last Update - 3:00:59 PM IST

सोनभद्र। जिले के पिछले और दुरूह इलाको में अंध विश्वास के कारण महिलाओं का उत्पीड़न हो रहा है। आए दिन कहीं महिला को डायन बता कर पीटे जाने तो कहीं महिला पर भूत प्रेत करने का आरोप लगा कर प्रताड़ित किए जाने की घटनाएं घटित हो रही हैं। मानवाधिकारों के हनन को रोकने वाली संस्था अंधविश्वास से प्रेरित उठाए गए मामलों को पुलिस अधीक्षक ने गंभीरता से लिया है। म्योरपुर चौकी क्षेत्र की दो घटनाओं में कर पुलिस ने पीवीसीएचआर को भी अवगत कराया है।
दुद्धी, कोतवाली, म्योरपुर और बभनी थाना क्षेत्रों में पिछले छह महीने में अधंविश्वास के वशीभूत होकर उत्पीड़न की आधा दर्जन घटनाएं घटित हुई हैं। इन घटनाओं के पीछे ओझाओं का हाथ रहा है। म्योरपुर के बलियरी गांव मे महिला को डायन बता कर आग में झोंकने, डायन का आरोप लगा कर महिला को पीटने, भूत प्रेत के चक्कर में ली शिक्षक की जान लेने, अंध विश्वास में जीजा द्वारा साली की जीभ काटे जाने जैसी घटनाओं को पीवीसीएचआर के एक्जीक्यूटिव डायरेक्टर/सके्रटरी जनरल डा. लेनिन ने जिला कोआर्डिनेटर सत्यप्रकाश के माध्यम से शासन में भेज दिया। पुलिस उपमहानिरीक्षक के स्तर से पुलिस अधीक्षक को मामले की जांच के लिए पत्र आया। इसे गंभीरता से लेते हुए पुलिस अधीक्षक दीपक कुमार ने मामले की जांच कराया। पाया गया कि जगेसरी देवी की जीभ काटने के मामले में आरोपी के खिलाफ मुकदमा दर्ज कर आरोपियों को जेल भेजा जा चुका है। दूसरे प्रकरण में सोमारी देवी और उसके पति के बीच सुलह समझौता हो गया है।

Subject: Petition:सामूहिक बलात्‍कार दीवानजी के लिए प्रेम प्रपंच
 

मैं प्रेमा देवी, पत्नी-लालमणि भारद्वाज, ग्राम-असवारी, पोस्ट-कुआर बाजार, ब्लॉक-बड़ागाँव, थाना-फूलपुर, तहसील-पिण्डरा, जिला-वाराणसी (उ0प्र0) की रहने वाली हूँ। मेरी उम्र-55 वर्ष है। हमारे दो लड़की और एक लड़का है। पति मुम्बई में काम करते हैं। बेटा भी उन्‍हीं के साथ काम करता है। मैं अपने दोनों लड़कियों के साथ अपने घर पर रहती हूँ. बड़ी लड़की संजू 25 साल की है. उसकी शादी हो चुकी है, आती-जाती रहती है. छोटी नीलम 16 साल की है और शाहजहाँ गर्ल्‍स इण्टर कालेज कुआर में कक्षा दसवीं में पढ़ती थी। गाँव में लड़के-लड़कियों के ग़लत सम्बन्धों के बारे में सुन कर नीलम का विवाह मैं जल्दी करना चाहती थी।

16 सितम्बर, 2010 को नीलम की शादी के लिए रिश्ता वाले आए. हमारी लड़की नीलम उन्हें पसन्द आ गयी। उन्होंने हमारी लड़की को पाँच सौ एक रुपये तथा साथ में मिठाईयाँ भी दिये। इसके बाद शाम लगभग चार बजे तक वापस अपने घर चले गये।

उसी दिन शाम के लगभग सात बजे हमारी बेटी नीलम शौच के लिए पड़ोस की एक लड़की के साथ जाने लगी। तब मैंने नीलम से कहा कि लौटते वक्‍़त रोड की दुकान से एक माचिस लेते आना और जल्दी आना। पर घंटा बीत जाने पर भी नीलम नहीं आयी। मैं चिंतित हो रही थी। अपनी बड़ी संजू से मैंने कहा कि देखो अभी तक नीलम नही आयी। संजू ने कहा कि हो सकता है कि वो अपनी सहेली के घर चली गयी होगी। कुछ समय और बीत गया। इस बार मैंने संजू से कुछ नहीं कहा क्योंकि उसके पेट में 5 माह का गर्भ था। मैं स्वंय नीलम को खोजने रोड की तरफ़ निकल पड़ी। वहाँ न मिलने पर मैं उसकी सहेली के घर गयी। वहाँ भी नीलम नहीं मिली। मेरी चिन्ता बढने लगी। तब तक पता चला कि नीलम को मोटर साईकिल पर सवार दो लोगों ने दबोचकर जबरदस्ती मुँह दबाकर उठा ले गये। यह सुनते ही सड़क के बीचोंबीच मैं गश के कारण गिर पड़ी। मेरा माथा फट गया। तब तक चार पाँच लोग आ गये। फिर मैं एकाएक उठी, सबके पैर पकड़ने लगी कि जरा देखें कि मेरी बेटी को कौन उठाकर ले गया, किधर उठा कर ले गया। उस समय सावन-भादो का घनघोर अंधेरा था।

मैं पगली की तरह सड़क पर इधर-उधर दौड़-दौड़ कर नीलम को खोजने लगी। लेकिन हमारी बेटी का पता नही चला। मैं भागकर अपने घर आयी। आस-पड़ोस के ताना-मेहना के डर से रो भी नहीं पा रही थी। अपने घर में ही सर पटक-पटक कर भगवान का पूजा करने लगी। कुछ-कुछ देर में घर से बाहर, अगल-ब़गल, इधर-उधर घूम-घूम कर ढूंढती रही कि कहीं हमारी बेटी नीलम मिल जाये। जब कहीं नही मिली तब हमें लगा कि हमारा हार्ट अटैक हो जायेगा।

घर में कोई आदमी नहीं था नीलम को कहीं ढूँढे या पता करे। मैं अपने कलेजे पर पत्थर रख कर घर में बैठ गयी। आँख से आँसू तो गिर रहे थे मगर मुँह से आवाज़ नही़ आ रही थी। जब-जब कुत्ता भौंकता या खड़खड़ाहट की आवाज़ आती थी तो मैं अपना जंगला खोल लेती थी, बाहर निकल कर ढूंढने लगती थी।

घनघोर अंधेरी रात में कुछ भी दिखाई नहीं देता था। फिर जंगला उसी प्रकार खोल कर बैठी रहती थी। दर्द से मेरा सिर फटा जा रहा था। उस समय तक हमारे सिर से खून टपकता रहा था। बैठे-बैठे भोर के लगभग तीन बज गये। तभी ज़ोर से मेरा जंगला खड़खड़ाया और धड़ाम से गिरा। मैं दौड़कर बाहर निकली। जमीन पर टटोलने लगी। हमारे हाथों से एक शरीर टकरायी, वह नीलम थी। मैं अपने हाथों से उसके बदन व कपड़ो को टटोलने लगी। हमें लगा कि कोई उसे चाकू मारकर फेंक दिया। उसके दोनों हाथों को पकड़कर जमीन से घसीटते हुए घर के अन्दर ले गयी। उसका सिर हिला-डुला कर देखने लगी। नीलम एक दम बेहोशी की हालत में पानी में लथपथ थी। संजू और मैंने उसके कपड़े बदले। फिर रजाई और कम्बल से उसे पूरी तरह  ढक दिया। कुछ देर बाद नीलम ने कराहना शुरू कर दिया। हमलोगों ने उससे पूछा कि तुम्हारे साथ क्या हुआ, बताओ। डरो मत, जो हुआ साफ-साफ बताओ।

मगर नीलम कुछ नहीं बोली। फिर भी मैं लगातार प्रयास करती रही कि नीलम कुछ बोले कि कौन-कौन उठाकर ले गये थे, कहाँ ले गये थे। मगर भय से वो कुछ नहीं बोली। इसके बाद अहिरानी गाँव के सुरेश से मंगला जी को सुबह अपने घर बुलवायी। उनके आने पर नीलम से हम लोगों ने घुमा फिरा कर कुछ सवाल पूछे। तब नीलम ने बताया कि छोटेलाल पटेल और एक अन्य आदमी मुझे जबरदस्ती उठाकर ले गये और हमारा रेप किया। किसी तरह से मैं अपना जान बचा कर वहाँ से भागी। और फिर उसकी आँखों से झर-झर आंसू बहने लगे। हम सब भी रोने लगे।

इसके बाद मैं और मेरी बेटी नीलम थाना-फूलपुर में एफ0आई0आर0 कराने गयी। थाना-फूलपुर में मुंशी (दीवान) हमें समझाने लगा कि एफ0आई0आर0 मत कराओ नहीं तो इसका विवाह-शादी कहाँ होगा और इससे कौन शादी करेगा। तब तक दूसरा मुंशी (दीवान) कहने लगा, 'यह अपनी मर्जी से भाग गयी थी। इसका रेप नहीं हुआ है।  यह प्रेम-प्रपंच का मामला है।  देख नहीं रहे हो, कैसा कपड़ा पहनी है। काहे अपने माँ-बाप को परेशान करती हो। बता दो कि तुमसे गलती हो गयी है, तुम अपनी मर्जी से गयी थी।' उसकी बातों को सुनकर हमारी बेटी फिर रोने लगी। तब दूसरे दीवान ने कहा, 'देखो कैसे नखड़ा कर रही है।'  इसके बाद थाने के एस0आई0 आये और कठिराँव चौकी के अंतर्गत असवारी गाँव में जाने के लिए चौकी इंचार्ज बाल गोविन्द मिश्र को उन्‍होंने वायरलेस से सूचना दी।

चौकी इंचार्ज असवारी गाँव गये। छानबीन की और बताया किया कि लड़की के साथ रेप नहीं हुआ है, इसके साथ छेड़छाड़ हुआ है। तब छेड़छाड़ का मुकदमा पंजीकृत कराये और उसक मेडिकल बनाने हेतु पी0एच0सी0 पिण्डरा होमगार्ड के साथ भेज दिये। वहाँ महिला डॉ. न होने के कारण मेडिकल नहीं हो सका। फिर जिला चिकित्सालय में मेडिकल हुआ। इसके बाद मैं नीलम के साथ वापस गाँव गयी। गाँव का कोई भी व्यक्ति मिलता था तब उससे पूरी तरह नज़र नहीं मिला पाती थी।

अब भी कैप्‍शन ज़रूरी है? स्रोत: predslavice.cz

पड़ोस के लोग नीलम को ताना मारने लगे। हमारी बेटी नीलम हमसे आकर सारी बातें बताती है। लेकिन छोटेलाल पटेल की गिरफ्तारी का भय सबको बनने लगा है। नीलम के साथ जहाँ रेप हुआ, उधर मेरा खेत पड़ता है। जब-जब अपने खेत की तरफ़ जाती हूँ, हमें अपनी बेटी की दर्दनाक बातें सोच कर सब कुछ याद आ जाता है। उस समय हमें कुछ भी दिखाई नहीं देता है और चक्कर आने लगता है। अपनी पीड़ा बता कर मेरी आँखो से आँसू गिरने लगते हैं। पर आपसे अपनी तकलीफ बांटकर कुछ हल्‍का महसूस कर रही हूं। बस यही सोचती रहती हूँ कि हमारे साथ जो घिनौना और अमानवीय कृत्य हुआ है, उसकी भरपायी कैसे हो पायेगी? कैसे न्‍याय मिल पाएगा मेरी बेटी को अब कैसे सब कुछ सामान्‍य हो जाएगा? हालांकि मैंने न्याय की उम्‍मीद छोड़ी नहीं है।
