Respected Sir,


We already lodged one complaint before the Commission in the matter of the victim Mr. Tabibar Molla from District-North 24 Parganas, West Bengal who was subjected to murderous assault and criminal intimidation by the perpetrator BSF jawans. Earlier the victim had lodged one written complaint before the Sub-Divisional Police Officer, Basirhat, District- North 24 Parganas.  Asian Human Rights Commission also sent Urgent Appeal vide Urgent Appeal Case: AHRC-UAC-007-2012 dated 26th January 2012


Recently we have received information that on 10 January 2012 at about 11 am one man, namely Mr. Ali Mostafa, by profession – driver of police vehicle, in plain cloth arrived in the house of the victim by one motorbike. At that time the victim was not present in his house. The wife of the victim namely Ms. Jahanara Bibi met with the said man who told her that he was a policeman and came from Swarupnagar Police Station to meet with the victim in the matter of his complaint against the BSF jawans. She told him that her husband was out of the house at that time. Then he told her to sign on two papers. She refused to sign on those papers in the absence of her husband. The said man became furious and started threatening and abusing her. He told her in threatening voice that her husband would be put under serious trouble if she refused to sign on the papers. Ms. Jahanara Bibi did not sign on the papers over which the said man suddenly caught hold of her hand and forcibly took her signature on the papers. The said policeman before leaving the victim's house reportedly told her to settle all disputes with Border Security Force immediately and withdraw complaint lodged against BSF. 


Since the aforesaid incident the victim and his family members are living in fear and they strongly apprehend that their life and liberty is in danger. The victim strongly feels under the present circumstances that some involved personnel from the police and administration in hands with glove with BSF are playing key role in order to invalidate his complaint against the perpetrator BSF jawans.


We strongly condemn the incident happened on 10.1.2012 in the house of the victim and demand an impartial enquiry into the matter. We demand that victim and his family members must be provided with due protection. We further demand that an urgent drive must be made in the matter of the victim so that the perpetrators can not save themselves by using their official powers and influencing the local police and administration.  We are attaching the letter written by Ms. Jahanara Bibi wife of Mr. Talibar in Bangla language to us.


Your urgent action in this matter would be highly solicited.


Thanking You,

Yours truly,



Kirity Roy
