NCHRO Madhya Pradesh lodged a complaint with the National Human Rights Commission regarding keeping the youth in the police station for more than 24 hours without any reason and not giving any information to the family.
On June 13, 2022, when a youth named Shahid Hussain s/o Sadiq Hussain r/o village Daulatpura Mandsaur reached City Kotwali Mandsaur to inquire about the youths who were detained in the police station for questioning in the context of a provocative social media post, other police personnel including the station in-charge made the accused person to sit in the police station on the pretext of investigation and interrogation based on some false and baseless claims. Even after more than 24 hours, he was kept in the police station without being produced before the court and in the end, when the police could not find any basis, the offense was registered under Section 151 of the Indian Penal Code by making baseless allegations. Finally the victim could come out today on 15th June 2022 at around 5 PM. Since June 13, no information was given to the victim’s family in this regard, nor was the victim being allowed to meet the lawyer. The family claims that if any person wanted to help them, then they were being threatened by the police to implicate them in a false case. In this entire episode, the station in-charge and the superintendent of police have been constantly shying away from meeting the family or the advocate without giving any answer.
In this entire case, when the human rights organization National Confederation of Human Rights Organizations (N.C.H.R.O) Madhya Pradesh has filed a complaint with the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) against the victim being kept in illegal custody for more than 24 hours without being produced before any court and false case was registered against him and demands to protect the victim of a fake case, to grant a fair compensation to the victim and to take appropriate action by registering a criminal case against station in-charge, City Kotwali and Superintendent of Police Mandsaur , in which we will try to reach its conclusion with full commitment.
