This petition is on behalf of the parents of Pritam who have lost their sole child, his relatives who have lost such a wonderful boy from the family, his friends who have lost a helpful and talented friend and the entire nation which has lost an upcoming scientist. This petition is for the sake of humanity that we all urge you to take serious steps to find out the criminals who have committed this heinous crime openly in Naugachia, and have been doing this numerous time, freely and fearlessly.
Pritam was travelling to Delhi where he had to go to Delhi University for enrollment in his Phd. Program. He as an M.Sc in Astrophysics and wanted to become a scientist in one of the prestigious Research Institutes in India. His aim was to do something for the Nation.
His dreams were shattered when a bunch of criminals kidnapped him, kept him in captivity for 5 long days, tortured him to the core and then killed him brutally. His post mortem reports reveal the way he was tortured, and we hope this does not happen to any living being present in the world. However we wish that the criminals could be granted the highest degree of punishment.
Was there any reason why the criminals killed him so brutally? Or was it only the reason that he had protested when they snatched his bag away openly in the train? Or was it to terrorize the passengers from time to time so that nobody raises their voice in Bihar when their seats are being taken away, their luggage snatched, women molested, men tortured and abused and what not? There were 5 murders in the similar way within the previous 20 days of Pritam’s death, one happened on the second day when he went missing!
From the day he went missing, the entire family of Pritam was constantly in touch with the police requesting them to find him out in a place as tiny as Naugachia, but the police could not find him till he was being killed on the 5th day by the criminals and thrown near a railway track, his head severed and separated from his body and multiple marks of torture of the highest degree in his body. There were several lapses on the part of the police which the highest officials of Police have already agreed.
The first lapse was that Pritam had complained to a TTE in the train when the miscreants had created a ruckus there and then to a security personnel present in the station about the snatching of his bag but did not get any response from them. Instead the goons threatened him of dire consequences for escalating it to the authorities, which the ultimately did. Now the TTE and security personnel are not even confessing the fact that this had happened.
It has been a long time now but none of the criminals are yet being identified while the crime took place in a busy railway station and he was being transported several kilometers before he was being killed. The police have not made any meaningful arrests till now and have no clue about the murderers. There has been no suspension or internal inquiry of the involvement of authorities. However we strongly believe that a faction of the police is involved in this crime and the cause of his murder might have been that he had identified the nexus between the authorities and the criminals.
At this point of time our only request to you is to expedite the process of inquiry and provide us with a very short deadline on the closure of the investigation by Bihar Police and capture of the actual criminals and officials involved in this. And if the Bihar Police is not able to nab the criminals within the deadline, the inquiry should be handed over to specialist officers in CBI. We also want a fair investigation into the issue and an assurance that these kinds of crimes will not happen in the future.
We also want CCTV cameras to be installed in crime prone railway stations in Bihar like Naugachia so that the railway station can be under surveillance and all criminals can be identified and acted upon.
We believe that the state of India will not let us down and help us get justice for a young and bright student who could have done a lot for the nation and lived for many more years.
