Custodial death : CM Vijayan warns stern action against those found guilty

Custodial death, CM VIjayan

Peerumedu : Amid the uproar over the recent custodial death in Kerala, Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan Wednesday told the Kerala Assembly that strict action would be taken against police personnel if there were any lapses in the case relating to the custodial death of a remand prisoner.

He also warned strict action against those who found guilty. Rajkumar, who was taken into the police custody on June 12 in connection with a financial fraud case, had died on June 21, in Peerumedu sub jail allegedly due to custodial torture.

Meanwhile, opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala claimed that the government does not take custodial death seriously.
