14303/24/2006-2007 Sammiuddin Neelu, on 13-7-2006, sent a complaint to the Commission with the submission that he is a Staff Reporter of the Amarujala and deputed in Lakhim Pur Kheeri for the last five years. As an independent press reporter, he has from time to time highlighted the illegal activities done by public servants including the then SP, Lakhim Pur Kheeri, Mrs. N. Padamja. When the complainant has highlighted the shortcomings of police, SP, Mrs. N. Padamja pressurized him through SSI, LIU Mr. Shukla and also through her IAS husband Mr. Ajay Kumar Singh, on the ground that Mrs. Padamja had first posting in a district and adverse report will affect her carrier. When he has not followed her advice, she had threatened the complainant that she would involve him in false criminal cases. This fact was communicated by the complainant to his seniors in Bareilly and Lucknow and also to the Principal Secretary (Home) and DGP, UP, Lucknow. It has been further submitted by the complainant that on 9-2-2005 at about 10.30 p.m., he left his office. On the directions of SP, few police officers encircled his motorcycle and he was kidnapped and his motorcycle and mobile phone were taken into custody by the police officers and pressed upon the complainant to write a suicide note. At that time he informed the police officers that he had already communicated to the senior officers of administration and police that he may be killed in false encounter. Then police officers after talking somebody on mobile dropped the idea of committing his murder and he was kept in lock-up. It has been further submitted that in the night intervening 9/10-2-2005, he was kept in lock-up In a false case at Crime No. 439/05 u/s 51 of the Wildlife Protection Act 1950 and at Crime No. 440/05 u/s 4/10 PGT Act showing that he was found in possession of sandal wood, nails of lions, skin of crocodiles and horn of rhino valuing of Rs. 10.00 lakh (approximately). It has been further submitted that after his release on bail he sent a report to PSKotwali and other senior officers of the police but his report was not registered against the errant police officers. He sought intervention of the Commission. Upon consideration of the reports from the concerned authorities in the matter, the Commission vide proceedings dated 04.02.10 observed and directed as under: “This is an unusual case of its kind, where a Press Reporter while exercising his right of freedom of expression was victimized by the police officials of District Lakhimpur Khiri, Uttar Pradesh since 2006. Samiuddin @ Neelu has been fighting a lone battle against the misuse of authority by the then Superintendent of Police of Lakhimpur Khiri and others on her behalf. What is remarkable in

this case is that the approach of the administration as well as the senior police officials has been characterized to trivialize the gravity of violation of human rights of Samiuddin @ Neelu, on one hand, and protect the police officials, especially, the Superintendent of Police, Ms. N. Padmaja, on the other. He was implicated in a false case in which he was arrested and had to stay in prison. What is worse is that, subsequently, when he approached officers in authority for redressel of his grievances he could not evoke a sympathetic response from them. On the contrary, the police officials representing the might of the State concerned ranged against this person Samiuddin @ Neelu and denied him even the right of being heard. Samiuddin @ Neelu has fought his battle for several years suffering mental, physical and financial agony. That his life was also in danger is evident from the fact that U.P. State Police had extended him security from 04/04/2006 to 15/05/2007, which was later on withdrawn for reasons best known to them. In view of the extraordinary facts of this case, it can not be treated in the same manner in which other cases like deaths in police or judicial custody etc. are dealt with. This case is a stark example of not only of total apathy but out-right antagonism towards a person, whose right to life was seriously endangered. Therefore, the yardstick for giving financial relief in this case has to be different from one which is generally applied to other cases. In reply to the notice issued to the State Government of Uttar Pradesh, the Secretary Govt. of Uttar Pradesh vide his letter No.1122/G/6-MA-1/09-3(162)/09 dated 10/11/2009 has admitted that there has been a clear violation of human rights of Samiuddin @ Neelu. Taking all these factors narrated above into consideration, the Commission recommends a sum of Rs.5,00,000/- (Rupees Five Lakhs only) be paid as compensation to Samiuddin @ Neelu by the State Government of Uttar Pradesh, which is permissible under section 18 (a)(i) of the Protection of Human Rights Act, 1993. Chief Secretary, Govt. of Uttar Pradesh to submit Compliance Report alongwith proof of payment within six weeks.” The State Government prayed for reconsideration of the Commission’s recommendation. The Commission vide proceedings dated 04.01.11 has reiterated its recommendations made on 04.02.10 and directed the Chief Secretary, Govt. of U.P. to submit compliance report alongwith proof of payment within six weeks.
