On October 5, 2005, ENSAAF released its report Punjab Police: Fabricating Terrorism through Illegal Detention and Torture (June 2005 to August 2005). This report details human rights violations committed by Indian security forces in recent-militancy related arrests. From June 2005 to August 2005, Indian police claim to have arrested several dozen individuals intent on reviving or supporting militancy in Punjab. ENSAAF's research reveals that Indian security forces routinely resorted to illegal and incommunicado detention and frequently tortured detainees. The Indian police have presented elaborate stories of thwarted militant crimes, concealing the escalation in human rights abuses. The majority of the detainees whose experiences are discussed in the report remain in the custody of Indian security forces and continue to be at risk of further abuse.
