derail efforts to end economic blockade BJP state president K Bhabananda Singh has said they will initiate dialogue to end the impasse if voted to power He said BJP favours building a specialized highway force which will ensure the safety of goods vehicles on the two highways — NH2 and NH37 – which are the lifelines of the landlocked state The indefinite economic blockade by United Naga Council (UNC) in Manipur is on since November 1 2016 in protest against the state government’s decision to carve out seven new districts by bifurcating the existing ones Supply of essential commodities including fuel to Manipur has been severely hit since the imposition of the blockade on the two highways Congress and Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh have “deliberately played” the card of dividing the people of hills and Imphal Valley for their political interests and have tried to “whip up sentiments” ahead of polls by allowing the over three-and-half months long blockade to continue Singh alleged The state government has maintained that the decision to carve out new districts was taken to improve administrative efficiency “The economic blockade has divided the state and is widening the gap between the people of the hills and valley Congress and the Chief Minister have deliberately played this card by dividing the districts so that he can get the votes of the valley which has a high population” Singh alleged in an interview to PTI yesterday “Congress wants this blockade to continue till the election is over The people have now realised how Congress and Ibobi Singh have been fooling them for the last several years Whenever there is an election Congress comes up with something or the other to whip up the sentiments of the people living in the valley for the sake of votes” he said Polling for the 60-seat Manipur Assembly will be held in two phases on March 4 and March 8 Almost 65 per cent of Manipur’s population live in Imphal Valley which is dominated by non-tribal Meiteis Two tribal groups – Naga and Kuki-Zomi – account for the remaining 35 per cent of the population scattered across Manipur’s hills that make up 90 per cent of the state’s geographical area Forty of the 60 seats in the state assembly are in the plains and elections in Manipur are scheduled in early March Singh also alleged that Congress is not interested in talks to resolve the deadlock and is pursuing “every trick” to derail the dialogue on ending economic blockade “If we come to power we will open a dialogue process to solve this stalemate and ensure that the economic blockade is lifted We feel that dialogue can solve the problem In case of insurgency problem too we are open to talks with the underground groups within the ambit of the Constitution “But those dialogues will take place without compromising the integrity of Manipur” the BJP leader said For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Raja Bagga Devika Prasad | Published: November 15 2016 12:04 am The law guarantees every person in custody the right to a lawyer during interrogation Top News The recent escape of eight SIMI members from Bhopal Central Jail and their subsequent deaths at the hands of local police raise stark issues relating to persons in custody These include the lack of access to a lawyer which could make the difference between life and death for someone in custody Take the cases of eight men in different states who died in police custody recently — Balwant Singh Satish Nogre Bhuri Singh Karthik Rafi ul Hasan Minhaj Ansari Pravin Inderjeet and Rafiq Shaikh Their fates were bound by one thread; all died in mysterious circumstances in the last seven weeks Accounts show they were all victims oftorture It is a matter of deep concern that torture at police hands could be the cause of these and other deaths We should be outraged and so should the police leadership that this is happening on their watch As per procedure inquiries will be conducted to identify the cause of and circumstances around these deaths However even when these strongly suggest torture as the likely cause police departments seldom move on their own to hold officers accountable It takes a media campaign and immense courage by victims’ families to push the justice system to act Their training doesn’t equip police officers with the legal or operational know-how to conduct evidence-based investigations There’s also a dearth of technical equipment for more scientific detection So the unspoken consensus is that torture is the necessary fallback Equally acceptable is illegality; the procedures for when to arrest and what to do on arrest are routinely ignored by the police This can change if people can access a lawyer immediately after arrest Legal rights are denied because there is no one to defend people against violations The law guarantees every person in custody the right to a lawyer during interrogation — this can be strengthened to facilitate access to a lawyer at the earliest point after arrest The evidence is irrefutable that this is when arrested persons are most vulnerable to torture But are lawyers actually present during interrogation The unfortunate answer is no The police have a duty to inform arrested persons of their right to a lawyer of their choice The 1987 Legal Service Authorities Act mandates free legal aid to persons in “custody” but there are no legal aid schemes or practical procedures that lay down what needs to be done to get lawyers to the police stations This means arrested persons are not provided their right to a lawyer until taken to court leaving them extremely vulnerable in the early stages of police custody Some states have made a good beginning Maharashtra’s rules state “…the police shall immediately give intimation of the fact of such arrest to the nearest legal aid committee” Rajasthan authorities issued a circular to provide legal aid at arrest But lacking schematic procedures these cannot be implemented The National Legal Services Authority should design processes that ensure lawyers are either stationed at police stations on a rotational basis or available on call The police must be instructed to contact the closest legal aid committee after every arrest Lawyers must be given unhindered access to confer with the arrested person before interrogation and allowed to sit in during interrogation (as the law mandates) These lawyers must also be assessed against due process standards The minute a person enters custody the police are responsible for his or her safety The presence of lawyers at police stations can be a strong reminder that the police can’t be allowed to get away with murder Bagga is project officer prison reforms
