HC orders to probe arson on Santals

High court on Wednesday (December 14) ordered the chief judicial magistrate of Gaibandha to investigate whether the police was involved in the recent arson attack on the Santals.

The court also instructed to file a report within 15 days.

The order was passed by the bench of Justice Obaidul Hasan and Justice Krishna Debnath after a petition filed by three rights organisations seeking necessary orders to find out the people responsible for the arson.

The petitioners on Wednesday submitted a petition to the HC annexing the media report alleging that the police have set fire to the houses of Santals.

Abu Obaidur Rahman and Barrister Jyotirmoy Barua moved for the petitioners, while deputy attorney general Motahar Hossain Raju for the state.

The order comes in the wake of a video of police setting fire to houses of Santals during the eviction drive at Gobindaganj Upazila, which has gone viral on the social media after being published by international news agency Al Jazeera.

Earlier, on November 6, series of clashes took place between Santal community and police, officers and employees of sugar mill over cutting sugarcane in which four members of Santal community were killed and 20 others injured.

Some of the houses of Santal community were torched and looted during the clashes.
