New Delhi, Sept 01 (KMS): A Muslim youth from Jharkhand has said that he was asked to sodomise his friend by the police authorities while in police custody.
Two young Muslim men Abdul Khalid (25) and Mohammad Aurangzeb (30) had the most horrifying experience of their life on August 26 in Kadma police station in Jamshedpur city of the eastern Indian state of Jharkhand,
After he was released Mohammad Aurangzeb has this dreadful story to tell: “After both of us were beaten and tortured in the police station, Khalid was asked to lay on the ground in the Munshi’s room. I was asked to pull his pants down. I thought they were asking me to show me his injuries. As I pulled down his pants, the policemen asked me do ‘sambhog’ (sodomy) with Khalid. I started crying and told them to kill me but do not force me to do this Gunah (sin). I was told, ‘If you would not do this, he would do that to you.’ When I totally refused, I was beaten with boots on my face.”
This was done in the room of Munshi of the police station in the presence of Station House Officer (SHO) Manoj Thakur.
Both Aurangzeb and Khalid complained that seven other policemen including Sub Inspector Harshvardhan and Nitish Thakur were involved.
Aurangzeb said that he was asked to say his name and when he replied ‘Mohammad Aurangzeb’ the policemen told him that “Do you know that both were dead” using “abusive and objectionable words against our religion.”
They were told, “You will make this (country) like Taliban (did in Afghanistan). Have you seen the plight of Afghanistan? You will be sent there.”
Aurangazeb said that more than the physical torture it is the abuse and mental harassment and the use of Hindu-Muslim slurs that has hurt him the most. He said that after the incident he is unable to sleep properly. Both Aurangzeb and Khalid are being treated for their injuries as they were hit by lathis and cricket wickets.
