Ailing Muslim Prisoner Allegedly assaulted, dies

An ailing elderly prisoner was allegedly assaulted by cops at Kota hospital in Rajasthan five days ago. The person identified as Mohammad Ramzan, 60, died late Friday night. His family is not giving permission for an autopsy before registration of FIR against the erring cops and announcement of compensation. Ramzan, a 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 canceled and he was sent to prison in 2018. He was sick. Some days back, his condition worsened. The jail sent him to the district hospital for treatment, from where 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.”
