India has always been a no go area for activists as they will stop at nothing to silence the voices of those who rise up against injustice. Despite these cases being highlighted every year by Amnesty International, there is no country willing to confront India on their human rights violations. In recent months we have seen the encounter of Vicky Gounder at the hands of Punjab police.
Another high-profile case is the illegal abduction and detention of British citizen Jagtar Singh Johal who has been physically tortured at the hands of Punjab police. THe police are now using these two names to scare other innocents into confessing to crimes they have not committed. The police openly admit to killing Vicky Gounder and implicating Jagtar Johal in fake cases.
