Family protests as suspect dies in police custody

A suspected criminal died in mysterious circumstances in police custody at the Pakistan Bazaar police station on Tuesday. The suspect, Usman, had been arrested a few days ago in an injured condition. He was in the custody of the investigation wing.

A large number of family members and relatives staged a protest at Abbasi Shaheed Hospital. They alleged that police had tortured Usman to death, as earlier in the day his condition had out of danger and he had been produced before a court.

Police said Usman’s condition suddenly became critical and he was immediately taken to Abbasi Shaheed Hospital, where doctors pronounced him dead. Karachi’s additional inspector general has taken notice of the incident and sought a report from a senior police officer.
