From his waist down to his feet, his body bears testimony in black and blue, of police brutality and torture in the third degree. It’s the body of Barnabas Bodra, a young Munda tribal from the village of Sitiburu in West Singhbum, Jharkhand. He is one of the over 6,000 tribals who have been locked up and brutalized in the prisons of Jharkhand on unsubstantiated suspicions of being a Naxal or of just being sympathetic to the violent Naxal insurgency that plagues the jungles of Jharkhand. After three unending days and nights of mental and physical abuse, Barnabas thinks he is lucky that he is not among 550 innocent adivasis who have already been killed by the armed forces of the state since 2009. The government continues to deny the existence of the comb and search witch-hunt through adivasi land. It terms "Operation Green Hunt" as a media fabrication. What Barnabas has witnessed and experienced differs significantly from the government’s take on the issue.
