A protest demonstration was held on Thursday by Tamil Nadu Muslim Munnetra Kazhagam against the killing of eight SIMI activists in an alleged encounter by police in Madhya Pradesh. Condemning the recent “encounter” deaths as “well-planned murders,” the protestors claimed that the incident was a blatant “violation of human rights.”
They accused the Union government of aiding the Madhya Pradesh government in this regard. Besides TMMK leaders, Manithaneya Makkal Katchi, the political arm of TMMK, and functionaries of outfits like ‘Christian Nallinakka Iyakkam’ participated.
On October 31, eight undertrial SIMI prisoners were killed by police in an alleged encounter in suburban Bhopal hours after they escaped from Bhopal Central Jail after murdering a sentry.
