To The Honorable Chief Justice Supreme Court of India
New Delhi Date: 4
Sub: Illegal detention, arrest and harassment on medical students in State of UP.
Respected Hon'ble Sir
This letter is to bring into your kind notice the most gruesome atrocities which have been done on the Medical Students of GSV Medical College of Kanpur over the last few days by the UP Police under the siege of UP Govt, which depicts that UP Govt and UP Police has mercilessly breached and crushed the basic fundamental rights and freedoms of the citizens. The issue of lawlessness and brazen arrogance of MLAs of the ruling Samajwadi Party is not a new thing and newspapers are full of reports of such incidents everyday, but present incident goes to show that UP Govt. and UP police has not respect for the Law of Land and Constitutional guarantees . Present letter brings into your kind notice the most brutal attack on the fundamental rights of the citizens. At the behest of the Samajwadi party MLA Irfan Solanki, his supporters as well as the police of Kanpur went on rampage and brutally beat up students of the GSV Medical College. Reports that we are receiving every hour through news channels and friends in UP, indicate that the concerned MLA even allegedly ordered the shooting of the students involved in the brawl with him. Reports also indicate that several students have been most brutally beaten up and put behind bars at the behest of the MLA.The said students and even allegedly professors are being held in police custody. The incidents of brutality of police and their most deplorable sycophantic service for the
‘powers that be ‘ and complete disregard for the common man is nothing new. Most of the
students who were brutally beaten up and detained come from extremely humble background and have joined the medical profession with their sheer hard work and perseverance. To treat them as criminals and torture them as criminals even when real criminals go scot free in Uttar Pradesh and its CM appeals for the release of hardcore terrorists, is the most deplorable condition that a state can plunge itself into.
Now that medical professionals have gone on strike all across the state of UP, they are being blamed for not treating the patients but if this is the manner in which educated youth of India are treated at the behest of arrogant goons and MLAs, then what else can be expected from the students apart from going for strike which is their only means of protest since they neither have the money power nor the muscle power to match the establishment and its arrogant MLAs?
