Seeking Justice, OdishaTribal Man Ferries Parents For 40 Kms To Court

Published on 1 September, 2017 at 5:12 pm By

Demanding justice after having faced the brunt of Indian law, a tribal young-man from Odisha lodged a unique protest by carrying his old and frail parents all the way to the court from his village in Mayurbhanj district, covering a distance of more than 40 kilometers.

Hailing from the small village of Moroda, the young man Kartik Singh claims that the Moroda police had locked him up for 18 days, after allegedly lodging a fabricated FIR against him. Though the incident happened way back in 2009, he was still being ostracized by the villagers, he says.

According to Singh, he was still bearing the brunt of the concocted FIR as none of the villagers were ready to offer him any work. He does not have the means to go out of the village  as he has old parents to look after. As a result, the three of them were having to spend extremely dark days filled with much agony.

Singh further says that the case was still going on in court, which is why he can neither get a job nor get married, despite being an educated man. In the footsteps of the legendary Shravan Kumar, he too decided to carry his parents to court to seek justice.

Advocate Prabhudan Marandi was of the view –

It is not the first time something like this is happening. Several made up cases are being filed.

Maradni alleged that the police at Moroda had a track record of lodging fabricated cases, the brunt of which was borne by innocent villagers.

Social activist Kumar Patra, who is also an advocate differs. He says:



Kartik is piled up so much debt that he cannot feed his parents or himself.

He further adds that Kartik had urged the district collector to give him a job but the authorities had been unable to do so.

The state and the Central government have several schemes for the upliftment of the socially and financially backward classes, but everything is out of his reach and the Government representatives or political parties have not noticed anything.

However, now all that Kartik wants to prove to his parents before they pass away was that he is not guilty.
