Allegations Against BSF
No case of harassing tribals in Chhattisgarh to force them to confess as Maoist has been reported so far. However, one complaint of alleged physical torture and molestation of the villagers of village Alor, New Alor and Pachangi, District Kanker; and another complaint of alleged harassment of villagers in village Sulangi, Koyalibeda, District Kanker have been reported against BSF personnel in Chhattisgarh State during the years 2010 and 2011 respectively. Both the cases have been inquired into by the Sub Divisional Magistrates concerned as well as BSF authorities and the allegations were found to be false, baseless and motivated.

This was stated by Shri Jitendra Singh, Minister of State of Home Affairs in written reply to a question by Shri Kaushalendra Kumar in the Lok Sabha today.
