Binayak Sen , naxal courier ,had "close" relations with Naxals

CM alleges Sen had "close" relations with Naxals


Published: April 28,2009


Bhopal , Apr 28 Amid a demand by rights bodies for the release Binayak Sen, Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh today alleged that the activist, detained since May 2007 under the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act, had enjoyed"close relations"with those involved in naxal movement.

"Dr Binayak Sen has close relations with the people associated with the naxal movement and as far as the issue of his release is concerned, his bail plea is pending in the apex court," Singh told reporters yesterday.

He said that it would be better if people talk about thousands of children being orphaned, women becoming widowed and a large number of people rendered jobless and homeless due to the naxal violence, instead of Binayak Sen at the national and international level.

Clearly peeved at the demand for Sen&aposs release, Singh claimed that people talk about him more"in places like Delhi, Chennai, New York and Tokyo, but in the lanes and by-lanes of Chhatisgarh he is a non-issue".

Binayak Sen, vice president of NGO People&aposs Union for Civil Liberties and a gold medalist paediatrician, has been jailed in Chhatisgarsh for nearly two years for his alleged closeness with those associated with the naxal movement.

When asked about the naxal violence in the state, the chief minister said the problem will not be solved till the local tribals join the mainstream and his government was making efforts in this regard."We are successful in this and naxalites are retreating in the affected areas.

Binayak Sen's trial. He clearly knows something that the prosecution has been unable to establish in court. Like all the other witnesses who actually cared to come forward and not turn hostile, he too would probably tie himself up in contradictions under cross-examination. If Raman Singh isn't lying, how has his government failed to prove the case against Binayak in court?

Raman Singh should appear at Binayak Sen's trial. He clearly knows something that the prosecution has been unable to establish in court.
