CPI(ML) condemns the murder of General Qassem Soleimani for which US President Trump has claimed personal responsibility. This unprovoked killing of a very prominent figure in the Iranian military and state, along with Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, deputy commander of the Popular Mobilisation Forces (an umbrella group of Iran-backed militias) and at least six other people has clearly been carried out in order to escalate an imperialist war on Iran.

THE four suspects in the Hyderabad rape and murder case have been killed by the police in an early morning "encounter". This "encounter" has all the hallmarks of a custodial murder, dressed up to look like an "encounter". Since the suspects were in police custody, and thus unarmed, it is clear that the police is lying when it claims they were killed when "attacking the police" at the crime scene where they had been taken to "recreate" the events of the night the rape-murder occurred.
TWO minor girls in Walayar were found hanging in their home in 2017, in Walayar in Palakkad district of Kerala. The 13-year-old girl was found hanging in January 2017 while her 9-year-old sister was found hanging in the same house in March 2017. The circumstances and medical examination suggested sexual assault and murder rather than suicide – but the police right from the outset avoided probing the leads and gathering the evidence. Instead they initially treating the deaths as suicides.
FOR the third time since 2016, the Thunderbolts – Kerala’s anti-terror commando force – has claimed to have killed “Maoists” in an “encounter”. The “encounters” in November 2016, March 2019, and the latest one in Agali in Palakkad in October 2019 all bear the hallmarks of custodial killings, i.e fake encounters.
