Review and scrap draconian AFSPA from Northeast 20.9.2016 Deccan Herald - Analysis
The Supreme Court ruling on July 8, imposing a curb on the unquestionable and unbridled power of the armed forces of the Union of India under the Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act (AFSPA) must have come as a bolt from the blue for the forces, particularly the Indian Army which has been calling the shots all along. While we cry hoarse that Pakistan, despite it being a democratic country, is virtually under martial law, our proclivity to ignore the fact that in Jammu and Kashmir and in parts of the Northeast, it is the Indian Army's diktats that runs large, calls for a rethink. Even the political masters in our country dare not counter the Army's stand. Weak political leadership has paved the way for the Army to have its way in stifling the fundamental rights of the citizens of the affected states over a prolonged period - so much so that generations after generations have lived under the shadow of the draconian law. The helplessness of the political lea-dership was glaringly evident when in 2010, then ...

CID gives clean chit to George in DySP case 17.9.2016 deccanherald.com
The Criminal Investigation Department is said to have given a clean chit to former minister K J George and two IPS officers in the case related to the suicide of Deputy Superintendent of Police M K Ganapathi in July. Sources, however, said the details of the CID's final investigation report, submitted to the Judicial Magistrate First Class Court at Madikeri in Kodagu district on Saturday, have not been made public. CID investigation officer Sridhar handed over the 500-page report to Judge Annapoorneshwari. Sources said a 'B' report had been filed in the case citing lack of evidence over harassment charges levelled by Ganapathi against George and IPS officers Pronab Mohanty and A M Prasad before he committed suicide. Prasad was the then ADGP (Intelligence) and Mohanty IGP (Lokayukta). Nehal, son of Ganapathi, had filed a private complaint in court accusing George and the two IPS officers of being responsible for his father's death. Based on the complaint, the court had directed the police to file an FIR ...

Manipur boils over Meitei-tribals clash ahead of Assembly polls 16.9.2016 Deccan Herald - Analysis
On August 9, Manipur was witness to a historical event when human rights crusader Irom Sharmila Chanu gave up her 16 year-old hunger strike protesting against the Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act (AFSPA) and decided to fight polls to get it repealed from the state. Her decision to quit hunger strike was initially not taken well in state capital Imphal but with emotions easing out, different sections of people have reconciled with it. Sharmila's decision came within a month after the Supreme Court took a strong stand on the petition of fake encounters in the state and asked the Centre to probe the cases. Thus, it seems that Sharmila had timed her quitting of fast well, given the fact that Manipur will see assembly polls early 2017. The 15 year-old Congress rule is being challenged by the BJP which is trying to make serious inroads into this trouble-torn state's politics. But this situation also has a parallel narrative that might turn Manipur burning once again. While the Churachandpur district churn ...
