Detention of Com. Vijay

Press Statement

Central Committee 30-12-2005
Communist Party Of India (Maoist)

Condemn the detention of Com. Vijay alias Prasad, CC member CPI (Maoist)
Demand the unconditional release immediately!!

The Chattisgarh police arrested Com. Vijay alias Prasad on 27th of December night at Raipur City (Chattisgarh state). 48 hours elapsed so far. They are denying his arrest and refusing to produce him before court. The intelligence officials of Chattisgarh are interrogating in an undisclosed location and waiting for the arrival of the notorious and nefarious Special Intelligence Bureau (SIB) officials from AP.
Com. Vijay alias Prasad has a glorious history of participating in the revolutionary movement. Following the call of Com. Charu Majumdar, he jumped into Naxalbari movement leaving his bank job in West Bengal, and continued his journey till date. He went to Bihar to become part of the movement there in 70's and was arrested in 1973. He was kept in various prisons in west Bengal and Bihar till 1978. Inside the jail he led several struggles for the rights of the political prisoners. He stood steadfast for the unity of communist revolutionaries. The post-emergency movement to release the political prisoners forced the Bihar government to release him. Immediately he jumped into revolutionary movement and his efforts paved way to form CPI (ML) (Unity Organisation). Later it was metamorphosed into CPI (ML) (Party Unity) which led many heroic struggles in (the then) Central Bihar. He became the Secretary of the Central Committee of CPI (ML) (Party Unity) in 1987. When CPI (ML) (Party Unity) and CPI (ML) (PW) merged into CPI (ML) (PW) in 1998, Com. Vijay became its CC Member. He played an important role in the unity process between CPI (ML) (PW) and MCCI, which merged into CPI (Maoist) in September 2004. He became CC Member of the CPI (Maoist).
He reached Raipur a few days back before his arrest on 28th for medical treatment. The Chattisgarh police has notorious history of fake encounters. It is not even sparing ordinary tribal people. In the name of Salwa Judum it has raged 40 villages to ground, killed around 100 people, and raped women since August. The genocide is still continuing.
In this background it is but natural to suspect danger to Com. Vijay's life.
We appeal to all sections of people, human rights organizations in India and abroad to press for the immediate and unconditional release of Com. Vijay.

This issue has so far not been mentioned
in the mainstream media here in India

The police are behind the diappearence of many members of the CPI(Maoist).

They take them under custody and then
when they are finished torturing and extracting whatever information they can

They stage fake encounters in which they are then shot

I fear we won't see him alive again

Your comments made me worried until I read the following press statement:

"PEOPLE's UNION FOR DEMOCRATIC RIGHTS
Subject: Disappearance of Maoist Leader

PUDR has received information that comrade Bijoy alias Prasad, Central Committee member CPI(M) Maoist who had been missing since 28.12.05 and whose life was feared for, spoke to his family today. He informed them that he was being held by the police in Khammam, Andhra Pradesh and would be produced at Bhadrachalam Court tomorrow.
PUDR thanks all friends for their efforts that have helped save the life of Comrade Bijoy.

Please forward this message to as many people as possible.
