The Committee for the Release of Binayak Sen, Mumbai unequivocally condemns the brutal and undemocratic police action against students
and human rights activists holding a peaceful demonstration at Churchgate, and sitting in a collective at The Oval Maidan,Churchgate. The demonstration was against the manifestly unjust decision of the Chhattisgarh High Court prolonging the incarceration of Dr. Binayak Sen, an internationally reknowned physician facing the persecution of the State, because he spoke up for the oppressed and Adivasis.
Daniel Mazgaonkar, a septuagenarian Gandhian activist, along with others- mostly college professors and students, were jostled and dragged away to Azad Maidan police station.
Kamayani Bali Mahabal, a lawyer and human rights activist, was brutally assaulted by the police and dragged to Colaba Police Station,along with student bystanders who protested against such high-handedness. Her crime- standing at Kala Ghoda silently with a poster proclaiming peace and justice!
If, in a "democracy", the law and its guardians act with such impunity in throttling every voice of public dissent, then very "democracy" and civil liberties and human rights are in grave peril.

Adv Kamayani Bali Mahabal
|First he was denied the right as a doctor to treat his patients. Now Dr. Binayak Sen is denied the right to his own treatment. He needs an urgent Heart Checkup and possible bypass surgery urgently|
We DEMAND the Chhattisgarh Government IMMEDIATELY allow Dr. Sen to seek the best medical care for his heart condition wherever he Chooses!. This is his FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT not charity of his captors!
