Asian Centre for Human Rights (ACHR) today condemned the arrest of Banglar Manabadhikar Suraksha Mancha (MASUM) Secretary Kirity Roy by Kolkata police and urged UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay to intervene for Roy's immediate and unconditional release.

Roy was arrested from his residence at Serampore, Hooghly by anti-terrorist cell of Kolkata police this morning in connection with a case registered against him for organising a People's Tribunal on Torture on June 9 and 10, 2008 in the state.

He was one of the organisers of the Tribunal. The panelists included Women Feature Service Executive Director Pamela Philipose, former NHRC senior Director Ashok Chakravarti, former Chief Justice of Sikkim High Court Malay Sengupta and former National Commission for Women chairperson Mohini Giri among others.

''A case under section 170 (personating a public officer), section 179 (refusing to answer public servant authorised to question), section 229 (personation of a juror or assessor) and section 120B (criminal conspiracy) was filed against Roy and other members of MASUM,'' ACHR Director Suhas Chakma said. Roy filed an appeal along with a stay application before the division bench of Chief Justice Mohit Ranjan Shah and Justice Pinaki Chandra Ghosh. The High Court is scheduled to hear the case tomorrow. ''The arrest of Roy just a day ahead of the hearing is a clear attempt to subvert justice and persecute human rights defenders in this country,'' Mr Chakma said.
