US Human Rights flays India for graft, using kids as human shields

Wed, Apr 20, 2016, 06:38 PM
The American Human Rights Department has generally blamed the Congress years, not sparing the Narendra Modi government either. It made sensational charges against the Indian government. The regime reeks of corruption and the virus is spreading fast, it said in its 2015 report.

The US HRD said the Indian National Investigation Agency is going soft on Malegaon blasts case in which Hindutva elements are allegedly involved.

During 2008-13, there have been as many as 555 encounter deaths, it said. It also mentioned about Sohrabuddin fake encounter.

It talked of corruption, harassment and violence along with shortages and problems facing the people.

The US HRD report said Indian jails are filled up very fast and there were food shortages and medical aid was lacking in jails. Twice as many undertrials are being packed into jails as those could accommodate, it said.

It charged Maoists with using children as young as 12 as human shields. When the children flee the Maoist clutches, their elders are picked up and killed in retaliation. Apart from the ultras, the security agencies were also using children as human shields, it added.
