Custodial death: Allahabad HC transfers probe to CBI

The Allahabad High Court has transferred the investigation into the alleged custodial death of a 24-year-old man to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) .

The court said that there is enough evidence on record which prima facie exhibit commission of offence by accused policemen, and high ranking officers made efforts to tampered with evidence in order to protect the accused.

Further, the coat added that these efforts were made to give the accused clean chit and that is the reason why evidences are created and manipulated.

Thus, it appears that fair investigation cannot be conducted by the State Police so same is transferred to CBI.

On February 11, 2021, victim was allegedly taken from his house by the police and detained at the police station.

The first information report (FIR)revealed that around 10 policemen had forcefully entered the house of the complainant and used filthy language against women, before taking away Pujari(Victim).

However, according to the police, the deceased had met with a motorcycle accident and was apprehended when public manhandled him.

The complainant was not allowed to meet his brother in the police station and next day he got the news that his brother passed away in custody.

The complainant was not allowed to meet his brother in the police station and next day he got the news that his brother passed away in custody.

After the examination of material on record and statements of various witnesses,the Court said that the story developed by the accused policemen that the deceased was brought to the hospital is not approved by them only.

It was evident from the post mortem report that same is manipulated or procured under undue influence as there were no mentioning of injuries received by the deceased.

Therefore, the investigation was transferred to CBI.
