Rights body asks India to rescind ‘shoot at sight’ orders in Assam PDF Print E-mail
NEW YORK, July 28 (APP):Indian authorities should rescind “shoot at sight” orders to enforce a curfew in the northeastern state of Assam to deal with the anti-Muslim riots there, a prominent human rights watchdog body said Saturday.The government should ensure compliance with international standards in responding to ethnic violence, and promptly investigate and prosecute those responsible while addressing the underlying causes of the clashes, said Human Rights Watch, the New York-based body said.Violence between indigenous Bodo tribes and Muslim migrant settlers that started in Kokrajhar district last week, has since spread to three other districts of Assam, resulting in the deaths of at least 45 people and displacing nearly 300,000. A senior local police officer said that the police have been given “shoot at sight” orders, allowing them to use live ammunition against people violating the curfew imposed on some areas since July 21. Local officials confirm that since the order was issued, the police have fatally shot four people who were allegedly attempting to burn down properties.
