An Unrepentant Police Force

.

We strongly condemn the ongoing attempts by the police of Kurnool district, Andhra Pradesh, to continuously harass U G Srinivasulu, an Adoni-based advocate and the Human Rights Forum (HRF) secretary for Andhra Pradesh and Telangana States (AP&TS).

Over the past three years, the police have filed several criminal charges against Srinivasulu, and several other activists of Adoni town, all of which are patently false. He has consistently opposed the arbitrary and mala fide use of the law by the police, and has critiqued their unlawful methods. He has also spoken out and undertaken campaigns against various industries based in Kurnool district that are endangering people’s health and the environment. He has opposed the fabricated charges against marginalised sections and has sought the proper and effective implementation of the Scheduled Castes (SCs) and Scheduled Tribes (STs) (Prevention of Atrocities) Act.
