GOVT TO SEEK FASTER TRIAL OF MUSLIM YOUTHS HELD ON TERROR CHARGES

Inside India

Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde on 15 May said the Centre will ask states to set up fast-track courts to take up cases of Muslim youth who are in jail on terror charges. Shinde said he will take up the demand for quicker trails at the chief ministers’ conference on internal security on 5 June. Shinde said the Centre has sent an advisory to all states and is trying to find out how many Muslim inmates (involved in terror cases) are in jail and for how many years. “We are trying to find out the facts. It will take time. We have asked the states to set up fast-track courts,” Shinde said when asked about his earlier promise to set up such courts. The move came after various political parties took up the demand of Muslim bodies that “wrong arrests” of Muslim youth in terror cases must be reviewed with UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav setting a trend by saying he would set free “innocent” prisoners. Congress also seems to be feeling the pressure from smaller “secular” parties.
