State Terror in Mathura, UP

05 July 2016
MATHURA, a city in UP, witnessed an encounter between the police and a semi-religious cult that left dozens of people dead. The police gone there to evict members of Azad Bharat Vidhik Vaicharik Kranti Satyagrahi have been occupying Jawahar Bagh for years on the directions of the Allahabad high court. The encounter is another example of jungle-raj. The reality of the brutality of state forces on display daily, however, doesn’t leave much to the imagination. Instead of curbing criminal acts it is criminalizing the society.
