For Immediate Release
Eight North East Boys Beaten in Gurgaon by Landlord, Two Seriously Injured
Racial Attack Continues in National Capital Regions
New Delhi, November 26, 2009
Racial Discrimination never ends to North East people in Delhi and National Capital Region. The matter has been put up to high level of police authorities and government heads. Still the crime continues and north east people brutalised. Eight boys from North East India are brutally beaten by property owner at Sikanderpur, Gurgaon, Harayana today afternoon at around 3 PM. The rented rooms are locked by the house owner and boys and girls forced out without any shelter.
According to source reaching to North East Support Centre & Helpline, Mr. Guddu S/o Ramher Yadam, a resident of Sikanderpur attacked on two northeast boys living in his rented house. Mr Guddu gather his neighbouring friends and started attacking other North East boys living in surrounding rented rooms. They punched on face, kicked on chase, chased them and fled to neighbouring homes and none came to rescue them. Two of them severely injured bleeding from mouth and nose.
As soon as the matter was brought to the notice of North East Support Centre & Helpline, Spokes person Mr. Madhu Chadnra contacted Mr. Anil Dawal – Deputy Commissioner of Police – Crime Branch Gurgaon, who was on his office trip to Rajasthan. The same was informed to Sub-Inspector Naresh Kumar of Crime Branch who informed SHO of DLP Phase 2 Police Station. The victims are taken to police station, no medication attention is provided until filing of this report. The written complaint is submitted to the concern police station. Mr. Naresh has assured North East Support Centre & Helpline to book the culprit repeatedly.
The victims informed North East Support Centre & Helpline after submitting the written complaint in local police station that police is bringing the culprits and negotiating the compromised. This is the shame on police part, which has played this dirty game of delay and reluctant to take the complaint and book the culprits according to the law of the land. The very mindset of police is sole responsibility of such repeated crimes on northeast people. Failure to take the law on the culprits has given wrong signal to commit the crimes. Until and unless, police perform their duty irrespective of people and communities, northeast people in Delhi and NCR will continue to suffer. All the promises from Prime Minister of India, Home Minister, Delhi Chief Minister remind just in air and not materialise any of their commitment, in spite of the fact that racial discrimination face by the community has reached at peak.
