NHRC requests a report on the Ram Navami violence from the DGP and Howrah police commissioner


The Ram Navami procession on March 30 in Bengal’s Howrah district saw violence break out. The North Dinajpur and Hooghly districts experienced an increase in violence during the following three days. Vehicles were set on fire and several people were hurt, including police officers.The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) requested a report from the director general of police (DGP) and the chief of the Howrah city police within two weeks after learning about the violence that occurred during the Ram Navami celebration in West Bengal’s Howrah on Friday.

It has sent letters to the West Bengal DGP and the Howrah police commissioner instructing them to look into the situation and provide a report within two weeks. Additionally, they have been tasked with ensuring that the inquiry is conducted according to the law and that no one suffers hardship as a result of any unlawful police action, according to the rights organisation.The panel has noted that, if true, the claims amount to a failure on the part of the authorities to take reasonable precautions to prevent the tragedy.If these rights are suspended without good cause, the state must account, according to the NHRC statement.
