Former minister seeks law on custodial deaths

Chandigarh, July 26

After yet another death in police custody, former law minister Ashwani Kumar requested Prime Minister Narendra Modi to initiate steps for a comprehensive stand-alone law against custodial torture. “There is a compelling case for such a law, based on the Recommendation of the Select Committee of Parliament, the Human Rights Commission of India and also of the Law Commission of our country,” Kumar said in a press release issued on Sunday.

He was referring to the death of Navdeep Singh (32), who was arrested on July 16 for allegedly making illicit liquor. He died under mysterious circumstances in the custody of Batala police last week. — TNS
