Team SoOLEGAL 8 Mar 2017 8:00am

The Uttarakhand High Court today issued notices to four policemen including the investigating officer probing the custodial death of a youth at Katoratal police chowki here.

Justice UC Dhyani issued notices to constables Pravin Kumar, Balwant Singh Bally, Virendra Bhatt and investigating officer Bipin Chandra Pant while hearing a petition filed by the father of the deceased Mohammad Yamin seeking a CBI probe into the incident and sealing of the spot where the boy allegedly hanged himself.

The matter will now come up for hearing after Holi.

Ziauddin had allegedly hanged himself at the police Chawki while being interrogated in connection with the alleged abduction of a minor girl.

However, his family had alleged, soon after the incident, that he had been tortured to death.

The police chawki staff had been suspended for dereliction of duty following the incident.

Advocate Manisha Bhandari argued before the court on behalf of the petitioner.
