UP: Mau Visit by CPI (ML) Fact-finding Team

A 9-member fact finding team of CPI (ML) visited Mau to ascertain facts about the 29th July incident in which a truck/lorry crushed many and killed 4 people instantly after making its way inside a ‘No Entry’ zone. When people came on to the streets in protest 4 were killed in police firing. Protestors claimed that the Police let the truck/lorry in the No Entry zone in return for bribes from truckers; further, they say police threatened them with false cases under draconian laws like Gangster Act for protesting. A judicial enquiry has been demanded, as well as stern punishment for the responsible officials, withdrawal of all fabricated charges against the local people and Rs. 10 lakh as compensation to the family members of the victims.
