More than a year since 9 HRDs were arrested on the pretext of Bhima Koregaon violence. On January 1, 2018 Hindutva mobs attacked Dalit Bahujans in Bhima Koregaon. In the aftermath of the violence their homes were raided, false cases foisted on them. We demand from the newly formed Maharashtra govt. for the swift release of 9 HRDs, all false cases on Dalit youths to be quashed and actions on Hindutva leaders to be expedited. We also demand that the pretext of Bhima Koregaon not be used to further target activists and human rights defenders.
