One of the tribal named Shibu Soren was killed, but not at that spot but far from that place and the three people have been charged for his murder.
The conflict between the native Muslims and Tribals are going on since 2012. It all started after Tribals occupied the lands bordering the state of Bihar and West Bengal.
There has been an ongoing fight between the local villagers and tribal over the land issues. The tribals say that they have been deprived of benefits under the government schemes as they have been landless for years.
To this date, hundreds of them do not have Voter ID cards or Aadhar Card. They also stated that the land allotted to them is either a barren stretch or by the river bed where they cannot settle down.
Also, this is not the first time that such an incident has occurred. Earlier four similar incidents were reported from the same tea estate.
Goal Of this Campaign
The goal of this campaign is to collect funds for Shri Shankar Murmu who is a tribal activist fighting for the cause of the accused tribals. The funds collected will be transferred to his bank account and used as follows:
Cash Support to deceased Shibu Soren’s family 1.5 lakh
Interim support to 11 families @ 15 thousand per family
