Asian Centre for Human Rights says Jharkhand killing is “violation of all laws of war”November 14th, 2007 - 2:56 am ICT by admin
“The Communist Party of India (Maoists) is an organization having recognised command structure and its leadership must be held responsible for such premeditated killing of innocent civilians,” Chakma added.
Chakma also said that appropriate measures should be taken to bring the perpetrators to justice.
Sixteen people, including son Anup Marandi, were killed by Maoists at Chilkhadia village in Jharkhand’s Giridih District at around 1.00 a.m.
While Marandi’s son Anup was killed on the spot, his brother Nunulal managed to escape unhurt.
According to the ACHR, at least 384 persons including 129 civilians, 162 security forces and 93 alleged Naxalites have been killed in the Naxal conflict during January to September 2007.
Chhattisgarh (208), followed by Andhra Pradesh (59), Jharkhand (44) and Bihar (28) have been worst affected by the Naxalite conflict. (ANI)
