Enclosed is a link to a documentary examining the illegal detention,
abduction, abuse, and torture of "naxals" by the police forces of West
Bengal, under the auspices of the Communist Party of India(Marxist).
The films focuses on the conduct of the police forces during period of
time starting in the late 1990s and ending in the early 2000s.  For
example, one of the casual labourers that were interviewed recalls the
treatment afforded to him when he had the audacity to demand that he
be paid the minimum wage:  he was thrown in jail and accused of theft.

The documentary has been uploaded to YouTube and split into five
parts.  In Bengali with English subtitles (approximately 45 minutes).
