Supreme Court orders Kopa Kunjam’s release

A correspondent writes:

Pleased to inform you all that today 30th September 2011 the Hon. Supreme Court Judges AK Ganguly and GS Mishra granted bail to Kopa Kunjam . The case was argued by senior counsel Shri Colin Gonsalves supported by Adv. Anubha Rastogi.

 As you are aware Kopa Kunjam has been in Chhattisgarh jails since 10th December 2009. He was falsely accused of abduction and murder.

Kopa Kunjam was working for the rehabilitation of devastated villages in Dantewada district and was also providing legal and other support to the victims of Salwa Judum and State brutality.
We hope that this will be a forerunner for the release of the hundred of others who are languishing in jails.
