Thanur custody death; Four policemen arrested

h

MALAPPURAM: Four policemen have been arrested in connection with the death of a youth named Thamir Geoffrey in Thanur while in custody. The CBI team made the arrests early today. The officials arrested are Senior CPO Jinesh, CPO Albin Augustine, CPO Abhimanyu and CPO Vipin. The crime branch had charged the four accused with murder in the case and presented the list of accused in court last August.

On the night of July 31st last year, the police apprehended Thamir and others from Chelari in the Thenjipalam police station area. Thamir's brother, Harris Geoffrey, filed a petition in the High Court alleging that Thamir was severely beaten by the police and died in custody on the morning of August 1st. The petition also asserts that the post-mortem report implicates the police. The court heard the petition and ordered the production of the case diary and updates on the investigation progress.
