All India People’s Forum, National Confederation of Human Rights Organisations (NCHRO) and People’s Union of Civil Liberties (PUCL) published Joint Fact Finding Report on Police Excesses in Mangaluru On December 19, 2019.
On December 19, 2019 there was a protest against Citizenship Amendment Act, 2019 / National Population Register / National Register of Citizens in Mangaluru city that was met with police action. Two people were killed during the police firing after protests allegedly turned violent, while scores were injured and several criminal cases were filed, and several people were arrested. Some journalists too were at the receiving end of police violence, while several journalists, especially from Kerala based media, were also detained by the police and later released. The State Government and the police claim that there was no police excess and that all actions by the police and district administration was in accordance with law, whereas the civil society organizations and the opposition have refuted the same, and believe that the police action was excessive, biased and specifically targeted the Muslim community.
The findings in the report would be alarming in any context. This report express concern that despite the facts stated in the report, perpetrators within the administration have not been brought to justice and human rights violators are enjoying impunity.
