A group of former judges, bureaucrats, policemen, and diplomats have written a letter to President Ram Nath Kovind. They asked him to note the alleged targeted political killings in the wake of the election results in West Bengal.
The memo, signed by 146 people, including former Chief Judges, DGPs, and ambassadors. They said that “every right-thinking citizen observes non-violence at all costs and respects a democratic process that inherently rejects revenge, aggression, and retaliation.”
The memorandum establishes that “media reports are based largely on eyewitness accounts.” Also, quoted, “mention murders, rapes, attacks on people and property.” These reports show constant attacks after the West Bengal state elections.
It is just because of the poor and inappropriate response from the local administration and police. These unfortunate developments, if left unchecked, could establish a trend that will undermine and ultimately destroy India’s deep-rooted democratic traditions,” they say.
In addition, as West Bengal is a sensitive border state, we request the NIA to deal with the anti-national attack on the culture and integrity of the country,” the letter says.
