Navy officer Jerome was violent in jail, say inmates

Mumbai: A judicial inquiry has found that
Navy officer Emile Jerome Mathew, who along with Kannada
actor Maria Susairaj is facing trial in the Neeraj Grover
murder case, had been "aggressive and violent" in prison.

The finding is based on statements of some of the inmates
of Arthur Road jail, including 1993 Mumbai blasts accused
Mustafa Dossa.

Jerome has filed an application seeking action against
jail officers for allegedly beating him up last November.

He alleged that jail staff assaulted him when pointed out
that they were flouting certain rules.

High Court then directed deputy registrar of the court to
conduct inquiry.

Registrar A Bhillare`s report, submitted to court today,
says that "Jerome`s behaviour was aggressive, he was violent,
uncontrollable and in order to control him the jail staff used
force."

Report says that there was no reason to disbelieve the
statements of witnesses which included Mustafa Dossa, jail
staff and a medical officer.

Dossa and two other inmates said that the behaviour of
Jerome was arrogant and aggressive.

Jerome and his fiance Maria are accused of murdering
Synergy Adlabs creative head Neeraj Grover in May 2008.

High Court has adjourned hearing for two weeks.
