Honourable Men


Indian children by Sir Anon

"Two Indian nationals, Sheikh Mukhtar Ahmed, a Special Police Officer working for the Jammu and Kashmir police, and Tausif Rehman, a resident of Kolkata in West Bengal, have been arrested in connection with the Mumbai attacks..."

"This in a country with a shadowy history of suspicious terror attacks, murky investigations, and fake 'encounters'.

"This in a country that boasts of the highest number of custodial deaths in the world and yet refuses to ratify the International Covenant on Torture.

"A country where the ones who make it to torture chambers are the lucky ones because at least they've escaped being 'encountered' by our encounter specialists.

"A country where the line between the Underworld and the Encounter Specialists virtually does not exist."
