Mohammad Faisal Husain, a young vegetable vendor and the sole breadwinner for his family of six, was allegedly beaten to death by the Unnao Police on May 20. Some media reports state that his post mortem report revealed that he succumbed to a head injury. The post mortem examination also found a severe injury behind his ear and at least 12 contusions on his body.
On May 20, his family alleged that he had been picked up by police for flouting the Covid curfew and then tortured at the police station, in the presence of the station house officer.
CJP, through this petition, demands that the UP-Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath takes moral responsibility for what is happening inside police stations in his state, and also directs the concerned authority to provide compensation to Faisal’s family. We also demand that the guilty police officers are charged under appropriate sections and tried.
