Now being hindu is Curse in Congress – JD(S) led Karnataka said Chethan Rajhans
Sanatan Sanstha has alleged that the SIT probing the Gauri Lankesh murder case is torturing the suspects and obtaining confessions from them. The Goa-based pro-Hindu organisation has come under the SIT scanner after a few arrested persons reportedly admitted that they were members of a radical Hindu outfit which h ad links with the Sanstha.
Sanstha spokesperson Chethan Rajhans on Thursday termed the arrests illegal and said it was being done by the Congress-JD(S) coalition in the state to amplify “saffron terrorism”.
The media were being fed imaginary stories about the Sanstha and other Hindu organisations, said Rajhans. “One of the accused, Sujit Kumar, was apprehended on May 6 but was shown as arrested on May 20. Three other accused were apprehended on May 14 but were shown as arrested on May 21. This shows that all these accused were under illegal detention for several days,” he added.
He also alleged that the accused were beaten by police and were not provided legal aid as they were Hindus.
