Comrade Suhail Akhtar

Comrade Suhail Akhtar, a long-standing communist lawyer and human rights campaigner and a member of the Arwal District Committee of the CPIML passed away in the evening of 25 May. He was battling cancer for quite some time. Following the conviction of Comrade Shah Chand and 13 other comrades under the draconian TADA in 2003, Comrade Suhail played an important role in building up a campaign for their release. This laid the foundation for the subsequent emergence of the Insaf Manch as a fighting platform against feudal-communal violence and state repression in the district. The Central Committee and Bihar State Committee of CPIML joined the comrades of Arwal to mourn the passing of Comrade Suhail Akhtar and extend condolences to his family and friends.

Red Salute Comrade Suhail Akhtar!
