Adv. K.Balagopal,one of the pioneers in civil rights activities in India is no more.It was on 9th this month Balagopal, who played a leading role in strenghthening civil liberties activities in India died following a cardiac arrest.

The works done by Balagopal and APCLC with which he had been associated since its inception in exposing the state atrocities committed in the name of encounter killings remains to be the glaring episodes of civil right activities. At a time when 'encounter deaths' are the order of day, the memories and assessments of Balagopal's works have the power to enable us to resist state terror and ensure democratic and civil liberties
