India should demand probe into human rights violations: CPI-M

CPI(M) on Saturday said India should demand an independent, high-level and credible inquiry on human rights violations allegedly by the Sri Lankan Army in the last phase of the war against the LTTE.



Chennai: CPI(M) on Saturday said India should demand an independent, high-level and credible inquiry on human rights violations allegedly by the Sri Lankan Army in the last phase of the war against the LTTE.

"India should be demanding an independent high-level, credible inquiry into the atrocities committed during the last phase of the war and the human rights violations," party general secretary Prakash Karat told reporters here.

Responding to queries on the United Nations Human Rights Council meet at Geneva in March where the US is scheduled to move a Lanka-specific resolution, he said he cannot say in what form the issue will be raised or what the resolution will be about but "this should be India`s stand."
He also said the party will launch nation-wide `jathas` soon, culminating in Delhi. This would seek to highlight the Left party`s alternative proposals on issues including corruption and education.
