Free Binayak Sen!

By Abhijit Menon-Sen <>

Today we attended a demonstration at Jantar Mantar to protest against the conviction of Dr. Binayak Sen by the Raipur Sessions court on trumped-up charges of sedition. Despite a complete lack of evidence and clear signs of police misconduct in his arrest, he was sentenced to life imprisonment. The verdict brings into sharp focus the sorry state of the government in Chhatisgarh.

One of the signs at the protest: "Kangaroo court in a Banana republic"
