Refer custodial death case to CBI: SHRC

The SHRC also recommended Home Department to give a compensation of Rs five lakh to the parents of the deceased and submit the action taken report within one month.
The R T Nagar police took two persons, Manjunath and Bhuvanesh, into their custody in connection with a case on the night of July 11. While in the custody, the police allegedly gave physical torture to Manjunath, who collapsed after complaining of chest pain. He was taken to a nearby hospital and from there to Jain Hospital. However, he was declared brought dead.

The SHRC chairperson and members of investigation division visited the police station the next day and verified documents including written statements of the deceased’s parents.  The investigation division submitted its report after a week. The SHRC made recommendations based this.
