By Asianage 03-Jul-2019
The deceased named Rajkumar,49 was accused in a money-laundering case and died in police custody last week and attempts were made to pass the death as a natural cause. The autopsy report revealed serious injuries to his ribs and feet.
The relatives of Rajkumar accuse that he was denied water and food.
Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has assured of justice and strict action against those involved. The Opposition, however, created ruckus in the assembly and staged a walkout.
“No one has the right to keep a person in custody illegally and beat him to death. Such persons will no longer be there in the force. The government views the latest death seriously and we will take strict action against those responsible for this,” Hindustan Times quoted the CM.
According to Rajkumar’s widow, he was taken into custody on June 12. However, the police records state that he was arrested on June 16. He died on June 21 in Peermedu sub jail and his relatives were told about his death a day after.
