New Delhi: The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) Thursday said it has taken cognizance of a complaint about the death of a 28-year-old man in police custody in the Jammu and Kashmir's Sopore town.

According to a statement, the commission received a complaint from a human rights organisation alleging that Nazim Rashid was tortured to death by the Special Operation Group (SOG) of police and army officials in Sopore in July this year.

"The family members of Nazim alleged that their son was picked up by the SOG of police in the presence of army officials July 30, 2011, for questioning in connection with the killing of a labourer, Muhammad Ashraf Dar, by militants," the statement said.

They later found out through some journalists that their son died in police custody and a post mortem examination was conducted.

"The commission asked its director general (Investigation) to collect the reports from the concerned authorities within eight weeks and an explanation from director general of police, Jammu and Kashmir, as to why the intimation about the death in judicial custody was not communicated within 24 hours to the commission, as per its guidelines," it added.
