NGO moves UNHRC over constables' woes

Bengaluru, June 17, 2016, DHNS 0:55 IST
The Karnataka government may have managed to stall the police constables’ strike on June 4, but a Bengaluru-based non-government organisation has complained to the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) against the human rights violations.

Janaadhikaara Sangharsha Parishath (JSP) has filed the complaint about ill-treatment of police constables by senior police officers.

In the complaint, the NGO said, “They (constables) work in the lowest echelons of the police in Karnataka. They are ill-treated by their senior officers to do menial jobs at their homes and work for long hours without any paid leaves. They get low salaries as compared to other states, resulting in low morale and humiliation, that in turn, leads to ill-treatment of the common man when they approach the police stations.”

The JSP members have also complained against the state government for arresting V Shashidhar, who was fighting against the inhuman treatment meted out to the constables. Shashidhar, who had voluntarily retired as a constable in 2000, had called for the police strike.
