Condemn racial discrimination incident at Jamui, Bihar
February 27, 2017
Racial discrimination of North-East youths in the country never ended. One Thanmayon RS, student of Ambedkar University was allegedly abused and threatened by one Station House Officer at Jamui District of Bihar.
Thanmayon RS said that the incident happen on 16th October, 2016 at around 9pm when he was with approximately 150 women,children and other villagers at Chakai police station to file a complain against the illegal work going on in Dulampur Panchayat of Bihar. There, the Station House Officer of Chakai started interrogating him just because of his looks. The SHO mentioned in the beginning said that he look different and thus, interrogation is necessary. The SHO abuses him and threatens the villagers.And then he tried to explain the whole thing in English as his Hindi was not that good but the SHO could not understand and later, when one of his friend Sanjeev Kumar tried to explain it in Hindi, the SHO didn't allow him to utter a word.
This is a clear example of racial discrimination. Instead of listening, the SHO started abusing and threatened to put behind the jail. The policemen there pulled both of them behind the bar. When they became aggressive to defend themselves, the SHO repeatedly said that he is questioning because he looks different.
The incident happen when Thanmayon RS went to Gobindpur village in Nawadih Panchayat, Chakai Block, Jamui district, of Bihar as part of his course for his village immersion.
MSAD strongly condemns this act of racial discrimination on looks, race and caste. MSAD request the concerned authority and Bihar government to take up strong action to whoever guilty involved in the incident. Otherwise MSAD would have a closer look in the matter and would take up whatever action necessary.
