British Police to Greet Torture pair from BROKEN BHARAT (PARTITIONED INDIA)
TWO police officers accused of being involved in torture and the disappearance of hundreds of Sikh civilians will be honoured guests of Merseyside Police this week, the Daily Post can reveal.
Sanjeev Gupta and MOHAMMED IZHAR ALAM (PROVOCATION, PROVOCATION) are taking part in the UK's first Indian Policing conference at Carnatic Halls in Mossley Hill, South Liverpool.
The conference is designed to share good practice between British and Indian police forces. But Redress, a group representing the survivors of torture, has called on Merseyside Police to withdraw its invitations to two senior Indian officers.
It alleges they have been involved in serious human rights abuses in the Punjab region. Dr Frances D'Souza, executive director of Redress, said: "The Redress Trust has received reliable information that Sanjeev Gupta, Inspector General of Police (Punjab), has been involved in acts of torture and disappearances of civilians.
"Likewise Redress has information that Mohammed Izhar Alam, additional director general of police of Amritsar (Punjab) was also involved in these crimes during the same period. These allegations have been well documented."
(MOHAMMED IZHAR ALAM IS AN ALIEN IN BROKEN BHARAT and EXTREME PROVOCATION IN AMRITSAR SINCE AUGUST 15, 1947 UNLESS PARTITION OF INDIA WAS ONLY TO DEMOLISH THE HINDUS BUT REWARD THE MOHAMMEDANS).
In a report published in January, Amnesty International accused police in the Punjab of continuing to use torture.
The Punjab experienced a decade of violence from the mid-80s to the mid-90s after a Sikh movement to achieve an independent state led opposition groups to target and kill police officers and civil servants.
(It should be noted that the so-called Sikh movement for independence was a reaction to the UNCONDITIONAL surrender of Lahore to the enemy that has even put a question mark even over the survival of DELHI. One logic was, IF PAKISTAN UPON YOUR KNEES, THEN WHY NOT KHALISTAN? The other logic was, If the majority community, i.e., THE HINDUS, could not defend Lahore and Karachi, HOW WILL THEY DEFEND DELHI AND CALCUTTA?)
The security forces resorted to indiscriminate arrests, torture and executions to counter the attacks.
Amnesty International (AI) spokeswoman Lesley Warner said: "Amnesty is concerned that some of the invitees to the UK-Indo Police conference in Liverpool may have been involved in cases of torture, 'disappearance' and extrajudicial executions while serving in the state of Punjab during the 1980s and 1990s." An Indian Central Bureau of Investigation report into a miscarriage of justice requested that the state governor of Punjab take "suitable action" against Sanjeev Gupta for his lack of supervision of his officers. Four of them it said, were prima facie responsible for the false imprisonment of a man jailed for the murder of a lawyer, his wife and their twoyear-old child.
More than 50 senior police officers from various states throughout India will attend the two-day conference.
A Merseyside Police spokeswoman said: "Merseyside Police is staging the conference with the delegates being selected by the Indian Ministry of Home Affairs and bureau of Police Research and Development. (Question: IS THERE A HINDU AT THE TOP IN INDIAN MINISTRY OF HOME AFFAIRS AND THE BUREAU OF POLICE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT?)
"We have had no say in the choice of delegates and in the absence of any ongoing investigation into the officers mentioned, we do not feel it would be appropriate to reconsider the attendance of delegates."
The Indian Embassy in London refused to comment on the allegations against the two officers.
A Foreign Office spokesman reiterated its priority to eradicate torture. She said the UK was working closely with the Indian Government as it began the process of ratifying the Convention Against Torture.
"Where there is credible information about torture we have pledged to work with other countries to take action but I can't confirm yet whether any action will be taken in this case."
Key speakers at the event will include chief constable Norman Bettison, Haminder Raj Singh of the Indian Ministry of Home Affairs and Riverside MP Louise Ellman.
A country that cannot explain how its ENEMY can be its PRESIDENT is not worth the thought.
In 1947 the homeland of ABDUL KALAM was to be Pakistan unless he were to embrace HINDUISM or lay the foundation stone of a "HINDU HOLOCAUST MUSEUM" in Delhi in the year 2003.
