‘Torture’ condemned

Meanwhile, the Joint Action Against Custodial Torture has condemned the alleged custodial torture inflicted on Mr. Shankar in the Coimbatore Central Prison, and the arrest of Mr. Jerald. A release by the forum’s coordinator Thiyagu; secretary M.T. Pandian; and legal advisor Henri Tiphagne, claimed that he was illegally arrested in Delhi and kept in custody before being remanded in judicial custody. The Tamil Nadu police did not adhere to the legal procedures. He was brought to Chennai from Delhi and transported in a van to Tiruchi “with women police abusing him trying to irritate him”, they claimed. The forum, however, sought proper investigation into the case, but made it clear that Mr. Shankar’s comments against women police cannot be condoned.
