Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh Human Rights
Commission (UPHRC) has ordered SSP Ghaziabad to lodge an FIR
against erring police officials for allegedly torturing a
youth, officials said on Wednesday.
The UPHRC Chairman H K Sema issued the order yesterday
after Commission`s investigation prima facie found cops guilty
of harassing the youth Abdul Rauf.
Rauf was allegedly detained at Loni police station in
Ghaziabad for three days in December 2008. He was later beaten
up and given electric shocks by the policemen.
The youth also fractured his left hand and suffered
severe injuries during his detention.
He was later sent to jail under Arms Act for illegally
keeping a knife.
