Custodial Deaths: 14 Kerala cops indicted in a 5 yr old case

Monday, September 27, 2010 03:18:46 PM, IANS

Thiruvananthapuram: Exactly five years after the custodial death of a labourer, who was allegedly tortured at a police station here, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) filed a charge sheet in a court here Monday, indicting 14 policemen.

The CBI filed the charge sheet before the Ernakulam chief judicial magistrate.

The labourer, Udayakumar, a bachelor in his 40s, died in 2005 and his mother had approached the court for a CBI probe in 2007.

Of the 14, three police constables have been charged with murder. Eleven have been charged with criminal conspiracy and destroying evidence.

But according to the CBI, three among the 11, including a deputy superintendent of police, a circle inspector, and a head constable, were also to be charged with murder but the agency did not get the sanction from the prosecution.

Udayakumar was picked up along with another man, Mani, from a park and taken to the Fort police station here Sep 27, 2005.

The police searched them and found Rs.4,000 in their possesion. When asked where they had got the money, the two gave differing explanations, raising suspicion. They were then taken to the police station and allegedly tortured.

Udayakumar fell unconscious and was certified dead on arrival at the Medical College Hospital in Thiruvananthapuram.

This incident was turned into a major issue during the Thiruvananthapuram Lok Sabha by-election by the Left Democratic Front, which was then in the opposition. The Communist Party of India (CPI) candidate Paniyan Ravindran won the election.

Picture of the Day

Due to the threats of riot and terror attacks, the festive season in India nowadays results in sleepless nights for the security personnel. Against this backdrop, the show of communal harmony in Malegaon by Ajantha Mandal cannot be more timely. The Mandal in a large hoarding portrays the real picture of the Muslim dominated textile town in North Maharashtra. It shows, Malegaon is where Azan in a Masjid and Shunkh in a Mandir go simultaneously. To further make its point, the Mandal plays communal harmony songs on a cassette-player in its full sound.
