11-year-old writes to PM Modi seeking justice to family

Bhubaneswar: A minor girl from Odisha wrote a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi asking for justice for her family which after a kangaroo court’s verdict on a land dispute, was driven out of their native village.

Eleven-year-old Subhashree, daughter of Ugrasen Moharana of Pokhari village under Niali block in Cuttack district, requested PM Modi to intervene as the injustice being carried out with her family by Kangaroo court.

According to her, the villagers had attacked her father and forced the family members to leave the House as they protested a land-grabbing attempt, reported DC.

The Ugrasen family has been now staying at a rented place in Cuttack for the past 12 days. The family had moved the Niali police against the injustice done at the kangaroo court. However, the police did not register the complaint, the girl writes in her letter.

The family already approached the director general of police, K.B. Singh, and other top police officials. Subhashree decided to write to the PM, as there was no action being taken in this regard.

“The opponents physically assaulted. They are now constructing a house on our land. When we opposed it, they drove us out from our village. We are now forced to stay in a rented house,” Subhashree’s father said.
