Former civil servants write to Modi asking for strict action on rapes

Prime Minister Narendra Modi

The Chairman of Kashmir Council EU Ali Raza Syed has urged the British government to raise issue of human rights of the oppressed people during upcoming visit of Indian Prime Minister, Narendra Modi to the UK. During Modi's visit, it is also expected to launch an Innovation Association India-Sweden.

Last year, Saab had assured it will ensure "full" technology transfer of its Gripen-E fighter jet to India if the company gets the contract to supply a fleet of the combat aircraft to Indian Air Force. However, officials have said India is likely to use the platform to push its message against terrorism and the support it receives.

Mr Modi will arrive here from Sweden on Tuesday night and is set for a packed day of bilateral meetings and events on Wednesday before the live telecast from Central Hall Westminster.

In their letter directed to PM Modi, the National Indian Students and Alumni Union, UK, wrote, "We the Indian Indian student and alumni community in UK are deeply horrified and demand immediate proceedings against the accused in both cases (Kathu gang-rape and murder and Unnao rape case)".

When Prime Minister Modi visits Sweden and England (April 16 to 20), cooperation in the areas of innovation, technology and education will top his agenda.

Foster also has a case pending in Alabama for his misdemeanor marijuana possession arrest in January. A plea hearing was scheduled for April 30.

Modi will be in London on 18 April, where he is also scheduled to make a globally televised address.

PM Modi will hold bilateral talks with Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven and meet the country's monarch, King Carl XVI Gustaf. Modi will hold separate bilateral meetings with the leaders of the other four Nordic countries on the sidelines of the summit.

Ahead of his visit, Modi had also said he was looking forward to deepening bilateral engagement with Sweden and the United Kingdom in a number of areas including trade, investment and clean energy. Nordic competencies fit well with the vision for India's transformation.

Prime minister, we write to you not just to express our collective sense of shame and not just to give voice to our anguish or lament and mourn the death of our civilisational values - but to express our rage. Mr Modi said, his visit to London presents another opportunity for both countries to infuse fresh momentum to this growing bilateral engagement. The India-UK CEOs Forum will also take place during this visit.

I would also call on Her Majesty The Queen, interact briefly with CEOs of the two nations who are working on a new agenda of economic partnership, launch an Ayurveda Centre of Excellence in London, and welcome the United Kingdom into the International Solar Alliance, as its newest member, "the PM said".
