Madhya Pradesh Assembly: Uproar Over Tribal Youth’s Death In Firing, Proceedings Of House Adjourned

Bhopal: Due to uproar by the main opposition Congress in the Vidhan Sabha today over the death of a tribal woman in a village near Indore in Madhya Pradesh and subsequent death of a youth in alleged police firing, the proceedings of the House were adjourned.

‘FIR has been lodged against kin of girl and youth who died’

As soon as the Question Hour started, former ministers and senior Congress MLAs Bala Bachchan and Kantilal Bhuria raised the matter and said that they themselves had returned from the spot. An FIR has been lodged against the family members of the girl and the youth who died there. The Home Minister should clarify the situation in this matter.

FIR registered on basis of CCTV footage: Mishra

Home Minister Narottam Mishra said that the short PM report has arrived. The girl died due to electrocution. As far as the FIR is concerned, it has been registered on the basis of CCTV footage. 

Mishra said an FIR has been lodged against more than a dozen people and the name of the girl's father is also included in it. He said that the government has also ordered the investigation of visuals (CCTV), so that the situation can become clearer. He also said that Congress member Kantilal Bhuria is saying that the girl was murdered, he should tell how she was murdered, then it will also be investigated.

Cong calls govt anti-tribal

After this many MLAs of Congress started speaking together and started calling the state government anti-tribal. Questions were also raised on the action taken in this matter.

Noise and commotion kept on increasing

Due to the members speaking together, a situation of ruckus was created. Speaker Girish Gautam requested the members to maintain calm so that the Question Hour could go on. But the noise and commotion kept on increasing. Meanwhile, the Speaker adjourned the proceedings till the end of the Question Hour i.e. till 12 noon.

On the intervening night of March 15 and 16, a mob attacked the police station under Mhow subdivision of Indore district after the death of a girl. The police also retaliated in self-defense, in which a youth named Bherulal died. 

More than a dozen police personnel were also injured in the clash. This matter was raised in the House yesterday also. After this, many Congress leaders had reached the spot yesterday in the day and they have raised questions on the action of the government and the administration.
