20 custodial deaths in Mumbai 

The Milli Gazette Online 

Mumbai: The Mumbai police has registered over 20 cases of custodial deaths in the last fours years. According to the city police records seven persons died in police custody in 2000, two in 2001, one in 2002 and five each in 2003 and 2004. But none of the families of the deceased have been given any compensation. The city police commissioner, AN Roy denied any torture resulting in death of any of the deceased. 

Human rights activist, Mihir Desai said that the figure provided by the city police seemed to be underestimated. The police try to cover up such killings. The Ghatkopar bomb blast accused Khawaja Yunus, according to a co-accused Dr Mateen, died of police torture. The police, however, maintained that Yunus managed to escape when the police vehicle carrying him, met with an accident in Parner in 2003. In another instance, the leader of a Scheduled Caste community was found dead at a police station in Jalgaon district in August 2002. He was arrested by the police on charges of domestic violence.

In January this year, the Mumbai high court’s division bench in Nagpur sentenced 11 policemen for a custodial death in Wardha district.
