A 28-year-old youth was allegedly killed in police custody in Baramulla district of J&K on Sunday. Nazim Rashid aka Naveed Anjum was arrested on Saturday in connection with the killing of a labourer Ashraf Dar by terrorists. “He was picked up on the basis of statements by local witnesses, family and technical evidence. He died during the intervening night while being under arrest,” a government spokesman said. Locals in Sopore were demanding action against the cops, alleging Nazim was tortured to death. A curfew-like situation prevailed in the township. There was a massive deployment of forces to avoid a law-and-order problem. Opposition leader Mehbooba Mufit and Hurriyat hawk Syed Ali Shah Geelani and moderate leader Mirwaiz Umar Farooq have been placed under house arrest. A board of doctors has been appointed to probe the cause of the death. The government has also suspended the in-charge of the Special Operation Group, guard commander and sentry. Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has promised swift action. “The death of Anjum Rashid in police custody is a gross human rights violation. Things like this cannot be allowed to happen”, Omar tweeted. —
