HYDERABAD: A city-based businessman, who was picked up by the Afzalgunj police and handed over to a Gujarat police team in connection with a criminal case, which eventually turned out to be a case of mistaken identity, on Friday approached the AP State Human Rights Commission seeking action against the policemen and also sought security fearing threat to his life.

SHRC chairperson Nisar Ahmed Kakru directed Sultan Bazar ACP G Someswar Rao to submit a comprehensive report on the matter. The businessman, Narpath Singh of Gowliguda Chaman, said in his petition that on Dec 28, two constables attached to the Afzalgunj police station forcibly took him into custody and handed him over to Gujarat police.

Singh in his petition said that the Gujarat police team arrested him with the assistance of Afzalgunj police in connection with a criminal case.
