21 landless poor dalits, mostly women and children, had been brutally slaughtered in 1996 in Bathani Tola, Bihar. On April 16 this year, the Bihar HC passed a shocking verdict, acquitting all the 23 accused in the Bathani Tola massacre case, who had earlier been convicted by the sessions court in 2010.
Concerned citizens have come together to launch a campaign for justice for Bathani Tola victims, under the banner of Citizens for Justice for Bathani Tola.
We request you to attend the Press Conference, and send your reporter and photographer/cameraperson to cover the Press Conference tomorrow.
