Out rage at the house of Mr sajan K George , National president of ,Global council of Indian Christians on 6th March
11 Mar 2006
While I was away as a part of an international delegation visiting china. Policemen from Kota, Rajasthan and Karnataka police trespassed into my home in Bangalore . What is most intriguing is that along with the police vehicle there were men in unmarked vehicles and they were also involved in the outrage at our house. We fear that the men were from Hindu radical groups.I would like to give the dreaded experience as explained by daughter
"There were around 8 policemen waiting outside the door when my mother & I and my four month old son returned from church on 6Th March in the evening around 5:30 pm.As soon as they saw us they asked if it was Sajan George's house. When we said yes and told them that my father was not at home and it was just me.my mother and son .and when we opened the door all the policemen standing outside entered the house along with us.They asked if we knew a person named Padma Shree M.A.Thomas, we told them that we did not know and they kept repeating the same question over and over again.They told they wanted to search the house as they got an information that the Bishop was as home.I asked them from which police station they had come from and one of them said he was from the Frazer Town police station & the rest of them were his colleagues from Kota , Rajasthan. Before we could tell them anything they started their search.They went into all the rooms checked the cupboards and under the cots.They searched the showcase for the bishop's pictures. The policeman repeated his question again saying that if we were lying to him we'll be in big trouble. I told him again that I did'nt know a person by that name.The police from kota told me they had tapped the telephone lines.They had a list of phone calls made . The policemen went to the other residents in the apartments to find out if they had seen M.A.Thomas while one policeman sat at home watching our moves.After questioning the other residents ,watchman & the driver two policemen'scame up again telling us they wanted to search the toilets. They searched Both the toilets.They asked me to call my father on this cell. When I called the cell was switched off.While leaving they asked me the same question again (if I knew M.A Thomas).I told them that my answer was the same ,that I did'nt know him .They left around 6:30 pm.Some of the policemen still stood by the gate for till 1am in the dawn of 9th March .I could not nurse my child and there were no female members along with the search party. There were more people in private cars and vans were also waiting out side our gate. The Policemen behaved in very highhanded way and were not courteous and many occasions they were threatening with arrest. Our security personnel were also threatened."
I request exemplarily punish the guilty and restore rule of the law. I also demand protection for me and family
