Man found hanging inside lock-up in Rajouri

Srinagar, September 02 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, a man was found hanging, today, inside a police lock-up in Rajouri district of Jammu region.

Officials identified the man as Abdul Majid of Parghal in Darhal area of the district and said that he was in custody on police remand.

Confirming it, SSP Rajouri Mohammad Aslam told the media that an investigation has been launched to collect necessary details into the incident.

“Once the things become clear, we will share them accordingly,” he further said.

It is feared that the man might have died due to torture by the Indian police, which later tried to project it as a case of suicide. Many under-trial prisoners have been subjected to custodial killing by the police in the past.
