Respected Sir,

 

We have come across the diabolical recurrence of torture perpetrated by Border Security Force in the bordering areas of Char Majhardiar Mouza under Police Station- Raninagar, District- Murshidabad resulted in a terrible scare in the minds of the villagers residing there. The villagers had to abide by the various silly norms and rules of and slightest violation resulted into brutal physical assault and harassment of the villagers. It does not seem that this country at all belongs to these people rather it is the atrocious rule of officials with nauseating indulgence from the civil administration. Our attached fact finding report gives details of the situation.

 

The poor marginalized villagers of Char Majhardiar Mouza mostly bear the brunt of BSF torture in the bordering areas whether they are involved with crime or not. The right to life and the right to livelihood of the villagers as enshrined in the Art.21 of the Constitution of India have been grossly violated due to the atrocities and torturous activities carried out by BSF in the name of safeguarding the country though there is widespread smuggling in the porous Indo-Bangladesh border with the blessing of a section of BSF.

 

Hence we seek your urgent intervention in this matter in the following manner:-

  • Secure the life and livelihood of the poor villagers of Char Majhardiar Mouza, from the gruesome atrocities inflicted upon them by the Border Security Force.
  • The whimsical and outrageous dictums of BSF must be overruled. 
  • The guilty Border Security Force personnel must be booked under the law for their alleged act of atrocities and torture upon the poor villagers.
  • The victims must be provided adequate compensation and protection.

 

 

Thanking You

Yours truly

Name of the victims:- The villagers of villages namely – Char Harudanga, Char Durgapur, Uttar Char Majhardiar, Mahadebpur, Char Banshgara under Char Majhardiar Mouza, Police Station-Raninagar, District-Murshidabad.

 

Name of the Perpetrators: – The involved Border Security Force personnel Harudanga Mini Camp under Kaharpara BSF Camp of Battalion no. 130, Police Station-Raninagar District-Murshidabad & concerned BDO, police and panchayet officials

 

It is revealed through the fact finding that the victims were all farmers under villages namely – Char Harudanga, , Uttar Char Majhardiar, Mahadebpur, Char Banshgara under Char Majhardiar Mouza, Police Station-Raninagar, District-Murshidabad.

 

It is also revealed during the fact finding that Char Majhardiar Mouza is adjacent to Indo- border. The villagers stated that fencing has been done by the Border Security Force touching the border road through the said Char Majhardiar Mouza leaving 300 acres of cultivation land beyond the fencing towards Indo-Bangladesh border and adjacent to the actual border line of border. The BSF personnel are posted inside the fencing, but villagers residing under Char Majhardiar Mouza have their respective cultivation lands beyond the fencing. The villagers of Char Majhardiar Mouza stated that crops grown in such cultivation lands remain unguarded and consequently the miscreants from Bangladesh frequently trespass into their cultivation lands and take away the produce of the cultivation lands. The Border Security Force does not provide any protection to them to save the produce of the cultivation lands. Moreover everyday thousands of cattle are being smuggled to Bangladesh in illegal way by the smugglers in connivance with a section of Border Security Force personnel and smugglers have been using the corn-fields of the villagers as their way for transporting the cattle. As a result, the victims could neither harvest nor cultivate crops in the farming lands. The farmers of the area were to bear the loss of field crops daily at the time of illegal activities of the cattle smugglers. The villagers pointed out that Border Security Force should be posted at the actual Indo-Bangladesh border in order to ensure protection to their life and livelihood.  

 

It was also informed that the victims were frequently tortured by the Boarder Security Force personnel if the victims would dare to protest against such atrocious and whimsical activities. Surprisingly enough, the Boarder Security Force authority, the local police stations and other administrative personnel were involved in such illegal activities. The victims were aware of all such activities but they were helpless as there is always a threat from Border Security Force personnel and local police of roping them in false and concocted criminal cases. The victims had to endure all these in fears of perpetrator BSF personnel.  

 

The villagers of Char Majhardiar Mouza since long several times submitted mass petitions against the ongoing atrocities and tortures perpetrated by the BSF personnel upon the innocent villagers before the  District Magistrate, Murshidabad, the DIG-BSF, Murshidabad, higher administrations concerned but no fruitful result yielded till this day. We collected few names and their land details , who are deprived of their right to life and livelihood.
