nedumkandam

IDUKKI: Three more policemen including an ASI were arrested on Wednesday in connection with Nedumkandam custodial death case.
The arrested include former Nedumkandam Station ASI Roy P Vargeheese, CPO Jithin K George and Home Guard K M James.

Former SI of the station and other officers had already been arrested. With today’s arrest, the total number of arrested persons has become seven. The Nedukandam police took Rajkumar into custody on June 12, accusing him in some financial fraud case. His arrest was registered after three days and on June 16 he was admitted to Nedukandam taluk hospital. He was totally exhausted then.

The doctors later revealed that he was not in a situation to be taken to the jail but the police paid no heed to it. He died on June 21 at the Peerumedu jail. Though it was suspected to be a case of brutal custodial torture, the intensity of the incident was revealed only after the post mortem report came out.
