Musahar: a life of torture by state with support of muscle power of upper caste

Anti Torture Initiative, Anti Violence Initiative, Basic Rights, Campaign

“Police brutality on me, my father and brother shiver my spine and fear overpowers me. Still I am terrified by the police thinking that as I raise voice against them, then they might implicate me in any false case. Earlier police used to stop me and used to threaten that they would implicate me in false case. The entire incident has pained me and it would be in my mind for years together. Suffering emanating out of police torture can not be compensated”.  (Voice of voiceless, 2011)
