India: Fabricated charges brought against Rights Lawyer Bilal Kagzi

September 1, 2019

Bilal Kagzi is a human rights lawyer in Gujarat who represents victims of police atrocities and custodial torture in Surat district.  He filed five cases against Kosamba Police Station sub-inspector P.H. Nai and police constable Nilesh Bhojawala.  The state human rights commission and the competent police authority took cognizance of these matters, but recently the police took moves to silence him.  They registered a false and fabricated case against Kagzi, but he was not present at the place and time of the incident.  Kagzi has video evidence to support his alibi and he presented such evidence to the investigating officer, but the police neither considered it nor registered it as part of the evidence.
