New Delhi: The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) Thursday said it has taken strong notice of a complaint about the death of a 28-year-old man in police custody in the Sopore town of Jammu & Kashmir.
The National Human Rights Commission sought explanation from Jammu and Kashmir Police as to why it did not intimate it about the death of a youth in custody within the stipulated 24 hours.
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.
An NHRC spokesperson said in the statement that the Commission has asked its Director General (Investigation) to collect requisite reports from concerned authorities within eight weeks and report to it.
