Dr.JP's Tweets on Encounters in AP and Telangana

25 encounter deaths on one day in AP & TS speak of absence of rule of law. Ineffective, unaccountable, trigger-happy police are dangerous.

20 poor wood smugglers are easy target. Real dons are safe & labourers are killed. That is no way to safeguard public interest.

5 SIMI militants should have been brought to justice. Killing in custody does not enhance national security. We need police reform.

Independent oversight of police, autonomous prosecution, insulation of police from politics & punishment for excessive force are needed.

Power to use force is the ultimate state power. If it is unaccountable, it poses danger to liberty of all. Let us raise our voice.
