New Delhi: Rajasthan’s Congress government which calls itself secular is following the footsteps of BJP government.
An ailing Muslim inmate, 52-year-old Mohammad Ramzan, was allegedly beaten to death by police guards on Friday night. He was undergoing treatment at the Sawai Man Singh (SMS) government hospital in Jaipur.
A few days before his death, Ramzan who was imprisoned in the Baran jail in Rajasthan had recorded a video stating how he was being tortured by the guards.
No action has been taken against guilty police officers.
Victim’s son Mohammed Rizwan has moved to the national capital. He addressed a press conference at Press Club of India along with noted social worker Prof. Apoorvanand, noted advocate Supreme Court Fazeel Ayyubi, noted social worker Nadeem Khan and others.
He narrated that his father was in Kota Jail for the past 9 months. Recently he fell ill and was shifted to Medical College Kota. Ramzan said, when we learnt about it, we went to see him along with our mother. But the guard posted there did not allow us to visit him and asked for Rs. 500 as bribe. We refused to pay bribe so the security guard badly beat my father after we left. 3 days later he died.
