RAMBAN CUSTODIAL KILLING

GK NEWS NETWORK

Ramban, Jan 24: Principal Sessions Judge Ramban M A Choudhary has rejected the bail plea of Deputy Superintendent of Police, Sonaullah Naik, facing trial for allegedly killing a local youth in custody.
 The court observed that accused has been charge-sheeted for the commission of the offences punishable under sections 302 RPC, which is punishable with death or in the alternative with life imprisonment and fine.
 “In such offences jail is the rule and bail is exception as the accused may tamper with the prosecution evidence”, the court observed adding, “Role and conduct of accused throughout the investigation and trial, so far, has been very strange as he being a Deputy Superintendent of Police had tried to keep himself away from reach of law.”
 The accused cannot claim parity with the other co-accused who have been granted bail earlier as their role cannot be equated with his role, it held adding that the accused was custodian of the deceased who was in his custody having been duly remanded by the Magistrate.  “The applicant was therefore responsible for the safety and security of the deceased so long he was in his custody.  He cannot take refuge in saying that his superior officer had shifted the deceased to Police Station Ramban where he was allegedly tortured to such extent that he died.”
 The court said the accused had absconded for a period of more than four years as such the apprehension of prosecution for jumping over the bail does not seem misplaced.
 As per the prosecution case the deceased, Ayaz Ahmad Wani, was taken to Police custody by In-charge Police Station Banihal Inspector Sonaullah Naik, presently DySP on November 3, 1995 on the pretext that he is to be recruited as a Constable in Police Organization.
 The deceased was thereafter shifted to Police Station Ramban where his condition became so critical on account of injuries inflicted upon him in the police custody that he was then taken to Emergency Hospital Ramban wherefrom he was referred to Government Medical College Hospital Jammu. He, however, succumbed to his injuries on November 10, 1995.
