How to Kill a Tribal in a Free State

A few days ago, on the run, Soni Sori appeared in the TEHELKA office, desperate but resolute. “You have to help me tell the truth to the world,” she said. “My well-wishers in Delhi are advising me to give myself up to the police and fight this in court but I’m innocent so why should I agree to be arrested? I’m educated and I know my rights. If I have done anything wrong I’m happy to go to jail, but before they accuse me, shouldn’t the police show some evidence against me?”

Shoma Chaudhary writes in TEHELKA the story of Soni Sori and her nephew, Lingaram Kodopi.
