On 26th and 27th March 2016, a 12 member team of lawyers of the Indian Association of People’s Lawyers [IAPL] from different parts of the country visited Bilaspur in Chhattisgarh to enquire into harassment of lawyers by the police and the bar associations. This enquiry was prompted by media reports that reflected the harassment meted to Jagdalpur Legal Aid Group [JagLAG], a team of lawyers providing legal assistance to adivasis and political prisoners. The FFT spoke with lawyers, and social activists, as also perused material shared by them. The enquiry disclosed the violent attacks on Christians, especially pastors, and Dalits, hence, the FFT felt it necessary to include the same in the report.
