‘Binayak conviction a travesty of justice'

Staff Reporter



Doctors and medical students on a silent protest in Kolkata on Tuesday demanding immediate release of Binayak Sen.

Kolkata: Condemning the conviction of physician and human rights activist Binayak Sen as a travesty of justice, more than 250 physicians, medical professionals and students here on Tuesday demanded his immediate and unconditional release.

Dr. Sen along with Maoist ideologue Narayan Sanyal and city-based businessman Pijush Guha was sentenced to life imprisonment on December 24 by a Raipur court on charges of criminal conspiracy to commit sedition under Section 124(a) of IPC.

Assembling under the banner of ‘Doctors in Solidarity: Free Binayak Sen Campaign', signatures of the protestors were collected during the demonstration that would be sent along with a letter to the President and the Prime Minister demanding Dr. Sen's release.

‘A true patriot'

“Doctors cutting across political beliefs have assembled here today to express their anguish and dissent against the injustice meted out to Dr. Sen. We want to tell that he was a true patriot who worked among poor tribals throughout his life by sacrificing a bountiful and luxurious lifestyle. Unfortunately, such a person has been framed with sedition charges,” said Dr. Abhijit Chowdhury, a well-known physician.
