Agartala: Tripura Human Rights Commission (THRC) on Wednesday directed the state government to pay Rs 100,000 to the victim who was beaten up by the public in the presence of police in the city in September last year and asked the home department to realize the money from the account of the police sub-inspector who detained the victim.
A THRC release said one Mani Das (Shib) of Narsingarh in the airport area of the city lodged a complaint with the Commission that two persons identified as Suman Miah and Rabbil Miah forcibly brought her husband, Sujit Kumar Shib, to the airport police station from the house.
While he was escorted by accused police sub-inspector Biswajit Das to Ramnagar Outpost in connection with a case investigation, a group of people beat him mercilessly on the way when Shib was under police protection. Mina filed a complaint with the THRC, based on which the Commission ordered the Director General of Police to investigate the matter, and the Commission’s investigation wing has also carried out a parallel inquiry into the allegation.
“On scrutiny of the records, the THRC came to the conclusion that accused sub-inspector Biswajit Das had committed acts of serious misconduct and grossly violated the human rights of the victim and held him responsible for such a gross violation. The commission slapped a penalty of one lakh on the victim for torturing and harassing the victim,” the release stated.
Initially, the state home department has been asked to pay the compensation to the victim immediately and thereafter realize the money from the accused police officer’s salary to the government exchequer, the order reads.
