Custodial death? Cops' version gets flimsier by the day 6.1.2017 DNA: Money
Investigations into the alleged custodial death of 24-year-old fruit seller Sompal are getting murkier by the day, as loop holes continue to surface in Delhi Police's version of the events. First, the police claimed Sompal was a serial offender with three pending criminal cases, a claim that seemed questionable, as the FIRs produced by them showed the accused as Somlal. To make matters worse for the cops, the accused in one of the cases had already been acquitted, while the other two are pending trial. Also, the family says they never called him Somlal. Then, Delhi police claimed that Sompal had been picked up because a vendor has accused him of stealing a slipper from his car. This statement has come into question as no record has emerged of the man whose slippers Sompal had stolen. In fact, Adarsh Nagar cops, under whom the case is registered, seemed clueless about the entire incident. When DNA visited the place, all the cops could say was that they were making efforts to identify him. Sources said, ...

Kin of Malegaon absconding accused wants govt to probe his disappearance 4.1.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
Family members of Ramachandra Kalsangra, an absconding accused in the 2008 Malegaon blast case, on Tuesday addressed a press conference in Mumbai and pleaded the government to initiate an inquiry into his disappearance. The family claims they want the government to take cognisance of the allegations by a suspended Maharashtra ATS inspector that the agency had killed Kalsangra and another absconding accused Sandeep Dange in 2008 but had had falsely maintained that they were alive. Kalsangra's family and lawyer said that if the government finds officers from the investigating agencies guilty of the charges of custodial death, then the guilty should be punished with death. In an application filed in August 2016 before a magistrate's court in Solapur, Mujawar had claimed that Dange and Kalsangra are "no more". Later, Mujawar was suspended after a case under the Arms Act and Criminal Intimidation was filed against him in the Solapur court. In his application before the court, Mujawar said that Dange and ...

Custodial death case: Discrepancies in FIR put cops in the soup 4.1.2017 DNA: Wide Angle
Several inconsistencies have been revealed in the FIR filed by the police in the suspected custodial death of street vendor Sompal, 24. The police, who have claimed that Sompal fell off the police station terrace while trying to escape, have no account of the two days following December 28, when the incident reportedly took place. According to sources, Sompal was brought for questioning to the Adarsh Nagar police station in north-west Delhi at 7pm on December 28. Around 11.30pm on the same day, a passerby informed the police about a body lying nearly 5km from the police station. "A man was found lying on his stomach behind the Majlis Park Metro station near the Shah Alam Bandh Road," the FIR has stated. The body was then taken to the Babu Jagjivan Ram Memorial Hospital, where it was declared unidentified and kept in the mortuary. It was only two days later, on December 30, that the Investigating Officer (IO) identified the body as that of Sompal, that too after he saw his name in the Daily Diary (DD) 54B ...
