Thomas Hembrom, one of the victims of the eviction, filed a complaint
with Gobindaganj police on November 26 naming 32 individuals, including local MP Abul Kalam Azad, Upazila Nirbahi Officer Md Abdul Hannan and Union Parishad Chairman Shakil Ahmed Bulbul, for their alleged involvement in the attacks.
Jatiya Adivasi Parishad chief Rabindranath Soren, reading out a written statement on Saturday, alleged harassment of Santals by police.
He dubbed the MP and the UP chairman “main perpetrators” of the November 6 eviction and lambasted police for not arresting the main suspects.
“Police are raiding Santals' houses … Santals and poor Bengalee peasants are being tortured,” he said.
Evicted Santals have been spending their days without a roof over their heads while their children are being denied education, Rabindranath continued.
He claimed the government was not doing enough to address their issues.
“We are calling for protest rallies this time but we will intensify our agitation if our demands go unheeded,” Rabindranath warned.
