Archana Guha s Fight for Justice

Biren Roy After 19 long years Archana Guka who barely survived police torture as a suspected naxalite has received 'justice' her torturer has been sentenced to a year's simple imprisonment! THE proverb goes, justice delayed is justice denied. But at least partial justice has been done in Archana Guha's case though justice was delayed for 19 long years. It may be recalled that Runu Guha Neogi, former deputy commissioner of police under West Bengal government, earned notoriety for his alleged torture of the naxalites in the early 1970s.

Archana Guha's case became well known not only in India but also at international fora.
