MP Police killed innocent tribal man in Kabirdham: Akbar

Wednesday, 16 September 2020 | Staff Reporter | RAIPUR

nChhattisgarh Forest Minister Mohammad Akbar on Tuesday spoke to Governor Anusuiya Uikey over the killing of a tribal man from Kabirdham district in an alleged unprovoked firing by the Madhya Pradesh Police on September 6.

The Governor is currently at her native place in Balaghat in Madhya Pradesh.

Akbar informed her over telephone that Jham Singh Dhurve of Balsamund village in the Jhalmala police station area was killed while another villager, Nem Singh Dhurve, escaped unhurt in the firing by the Madhya Pradesh Police on the inter-state border, an official press released on Tuesday quoted the Minister as saying.

"Based on preliminary findings, police in Jhalmala have pointed that the MP Police allegedly opened unprovoked firing on the two tribals," said Akbar, the MLA from Kawardha constituency in Kabirdham.

The Dhurves had gone to neighbouring Madhya Pradesh for fishing. While returning home, the Madhya Pradesh Police tried to stop them. Scared, both ran away from the spot.

The MP Police chased and killed them in Jhamsingh in Chhattisgarh, the Minister said, adding that both the tribals had no connection with Naxalites.

The Governor has assured the Minister that she will take up the issue with her Madhya Pradesh counterpart.

Akbar has also written to Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan seeking a high-level probe into the killing.
