JAIPUR –  A sick elderly Muslim prisoner on Friday died under the police custody after he was allegedly assaulted by cops at Kota hospital in Rajasthan. Deceased Mohammed Ramazan’s family is reportedly not taking his body and refused to allow post-mortem until the accused is booked.

Talking to media persons, the family members said that the deceased was beaten up by hanging him upside down after his wife and son refused to give bribe Rs 500 to the jail guard for meeting him. They are outraged over the inhuman treatment given to the sick and elderly Ramzan and demanded a compensation of Rs 50 lakh.

A video of the victim is being shared on social media in which Ramzan, who is seen to be admitted in the hospital, alleged he was beaten up by the jail guard 8 times. It is also being alleged that when he fell sick, the jail authorities did not give him proper treatment.  Ramazan, who hails from Rajasthan’s Mangrole and was lodged in Baran district jail, also faced communal slur.

#justicforramzanसाथियों,ये मोहम्मद रमज़ान है।बारां राजस्थान की जिला जेल में सजायाफ्ता कैदी हैं। गंभीर बीमारी के चलते इन्हें कुछ दिनों पहले कोटा के मेडिकल कॉलेज हॉस्पिटल में जेल प्रशासन ने कैदी वार्ड में भर्ती करवाया था।जहां ड्यूटी पर तैनात पुलिस कर्मियों ने शराब के नशे में बीमार होने के बावजूद इनसे लात घूंसों और पाइप से मारपीट की गई। साथ ही धर्म को आधार बना कर अपशब्द भी कहे गए।मारपीट की वजह से जब तबियत ज़्यादा बिगड़ने लगी तो आनन फानन में इन्हें राज्य के बड़े अस्पताल जयपुर sms में रैफर कर दिया गया। वहाँ पर भी कोटा की पुलिस गार्ड ने इलाज कर रहे डॉक्टर से मिलीभगत करके इन्हें बिमारी की ही हालत में डिस्चार्ज करवा लिया और दुबारा जेल में भेज दिया।जहाँ इनकी तबियत ओर ज़्यादा खराब हो गई है।जेल प्रशासन ने कल रात इन्हें हॉस्पिटल में भर्ती करवाया जहाँ इनकी मृत्यु हो गई।मृतक रमजान के घर वालो ने लाश लेने से मना कर दिया है।इस मामले में वो उच्च स्तरीय जांच की मांग कर रहे हैं।सरकार को चाहिए की इस मामले में दोषियों के खिलाफ उचित कार्यवाही करे।मृतक रमज़ान को इन्साफ दिलवाने के लिए आप जो भी कर सकते हैं।जरूर कीजिये।

“Ramzan, resident of Mangrol in Baran district in the state, was convicted in a case in 1992 and awarded two years imprisonment. He got bail and moved the high court challenging the lower court order. When the high court upheld the lower court order, his bail was cancelled and he was sent to prison in 2018. He was sick. Some days back, his condition worsened. The jail sent him to district hospital for treatment, from there he was referred to Kota hospital in Kota district. At the Kota hospital five days ago, some cops who were staying with him at the hospital assaulted him. They were drunk. They also hurled communal abuses at him. As he was already sick, after the beating his condition worsened and he died late Friday night,”  Adv. Ansar Indori was quoted by India Tomorrow as saying
