CPI(ML) RED STAR SEVERELY CONDEMNS DELHI POLICE CHARGE-SHEET ON COMMUNAL RIOT IN DELHI

05 October 2020

The Delhi Police under Amit Shah is continuing to get unauthenticated fake statements claiming they are from men and women arrested from the area where the riots took place and coming out with supplementary charge sheets on more and more opposition leaders and intellectuals. Already large number of students, youth, Muslim activists active in the Anti-CAA movement are arrested based on the fake evidences concocted by them. More such supplementary charge sheets are sheets have come out now from the Delhi Police Crime Branch which include names of CPI(M) General Secretary, Sitaram Yechury, Swaraj India president Yogendra Yadav, JNU professor Jayati Ghosh, Delhi University professor Apoorvanand and documentary film maker Rahul Roy.

The way the fake confessional statements are manufactured after prolonged interrogations from arrested people and the names of such prominent political leaders and intellectuals are included in the charge sheets for provoking the riots shows that it is not going to end with these five including CPI(M) general Sedretary Sitharam Yechury.

What is going on is a well designed conspiracy to protect the real culprits, the RSS/BJP leaders who were calling for riots in front of police officers who are roaming free, and to use the Delhi Police made conspiracy plots to arrest opposition leaders and intellectuals.

We appeal to all democratic forces to recognize the gravity of the thickening plot by the Modi government, and to come out in protest in larger numbers to protest against this. The campaign to scrap UAPA and Sedition Charges, to stop this witch hunting and for the release of all the political leaders should be further intensified.

The Communist movement in India has a history of almost a century after the salvos of October Revolution in Russia brought Marxism-Leninism to the people of India who were engaged in the national liberation struggle against the British colonialists. It is a complex and chequered history.
