Honorable Prime Minister,

Please find attached a petition that was circulated a few days go. It bears more than 120 attestations demanding justice in the brutal murders of Professor Papiya Ghosh and Ms. Malti Devi in Patna on the night of December 2nd 2006.

The signatories to the petition are faculty members teaching in various universities across India and the world, and colleagues and friends of the late Dr. Papiya Ghosh.

As the enclosed petition makes clear, we urgently request that the Government of India brings its full powers to bear in the investigation of these murders so that the guilty are brought to justice.

We thank you in advance for your consideration of our efforts in this matter.
