Police took Ansari to hospital, he was declared 'medically fit'
Ansari, who had been working in Pune for the last nine years and got married just 45 days ago, was badly bruised when he was taken to police.
Police took him to government-run Sadar Hospital where he was reportedly declared "medically fit". Cops then took him to a court where magistrate sent him to prison on the same day.
But Ansari wasn't keeping well.
Couldn't police see he was beaten, asked Ansari's uncle
"I cannot believe that he never said anything to the police about the beating. The police deliberately left it out. Were the police blind that they did not see that he was badly beaten? Why could the doctors not see his pain?" Ansari's uncle Maqsood Alam told IE.
Ansari was taken to Jamshedpur's hospital, was declared 'brought dead'
Though Ansari's condition was deteriorating, police took him to the Sadar hospital only after four days, on June 22.
His family reached the hospital and took him to Jamshedpur's Tata Main Hospital (TMH) where he was declared brought dead.
Ansari's bereaved wife Shahista Parveen said, "He was mercilessly beaten as he was Muslim. I don't have anybody, no in-laws. My husband was my only support. I want justice."
An SIT is investigating the case, cops have been suspended
Subsequently, an SIT, being headed by inspector TN Singh, was formed to probe the case.
Meanwhile, Seraikela-Kharsawan's SP, Kartik S, said, "Kharsawan OC (officers-in-charge) Chandra Mohaon Oraon and Sini OC Bipin Behari Singh have been suspended. I am personally investigating the alleged lapses and negligence."
On Monday, four more accused namely Kamal Mahato, Premchand Mahali, Bheem Mandal and Sonmau Pradhan were arrested.
Apparently, police didn't mention the brutal assault in FIR
Though some action has been taken, there are many questions which are left unanswered.
Kamal Mahato, who is now in custody, filed a complaint against Ansari alleging theft. But the brutal assault wasn't mentioned in the FIR.
Meanwhile, Alam said even if his nephew stole the bike, he shouldn't have been treated like this.
The SIT is supposed to submit its report by Wednesday.
