JEYPORE: Familly  members of Akash Mohuria (28), who died in Koraput DHH while undergoing treatment for bullet injury on January 30, have demanded probe into the matter by the State Human Rights Commission (SHRC), citing it as custodial death. The controversy over the death erupted when the family members reported the matter to South Western Range DIG S Sayni alleging that Akash was tortured by the police, which resulted in his death.

Refuting the allegation, police said Akash had criminal records and while he was being chased, he slipped and sustained injuries on his head. On Thursday, Akash’s family sought SHRC’s intervention stating that the police have not started their inquiry. They also lodged an FIR against three police officers and the police team in Jeypore town police station.

Meanwhile, Jeypore SDPO R Senapati said inquiry is on by Koraput town police IIC and the post mortem report of the deceased is awaited. Police sources said 14 cases were filed against Akash.
