Bhubaneswar: An 11-year-old Odisha girl has written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking justice for her family, which was banished from their village after a kangaroo court’s verdict on a land dispute.

In the letter, Subhashree, the daughter of Ugrasen Moharana of Pokhari village under Niali block in Cuttack district,  urged him to intervene into the matter for safe return of her family, with whom injustice has been meted out by the Kangaroo court.

 

She alleged the villagers had attacked her father and forced rest of the members to leave the house as they protested their land grabbing bid.

The Ugrasen family is now staying at a rented house at the CDA area in Cuttack city for 12 days. The victim had moved the Niali police against injustice done at Kangaroo court. However, the police did not receive the complaint, she said in the letter. The family had approached the director general of police, K.B. Singh and other top cops, the letter states.

Finally, Subhashree decided to write to the Prime Minister to “get back their rights”. “The opponents physically assaulted and tortured us. They are also constructing a house on our land. When we opposed it, they drove us out from our village. We are now staying in a rented house at CDA in Cuttack,” said Ugrasen Moharana.
