Allahabad: Two persons, arrested on charges
of firing at a police party at a liquor shop near here, today
died in police custody prompting authorities to order a CB-CID
probe.

Sanjay Nishad and Ashok Nishad and two others were last
night arrested after they fired at a police party leaving a
constable injured in Ghoorpur area, some 40-km from here.

Sanjay died in hospital where he was taken in a serious
condition while Ashok succumbed to injuries on way to a court,
IGP (Allahabad Range) Chandra Prakash told reporters here.

He said a case had been registered after the family
members alleged the two were tortured in police custody.

The IGP said a CB-CID inquiry was also ordered into the
incident, adding no one found guilty would be spared.

The post-mortem on the two would be videographed, he
said.

Both Sanjay and Ashok had criminal records with the
former carrying a reward of 5,000 on his head, Prakash said.

The police reached the shop after receiving information
that some youths, brandishing weapons, were asking the owner
to serve them beer.
