A Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) affiliated Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh worker who was taken in police custody mysteriously passed away on Saturday. The worker was alleged of drinking in public after which he was taken into the public custody. Responding to the incident, the Bharatiya Janata Party has asked for a hartal in response. The man was identified a Sandeep who was arrested along with four other men.
After getting arrested Sandeep was feeling uneasiness and was taken to a nearby hospital. The twist in the story is that his family accused the police of beating and torturing Sandeep. “A BMS activist was taken into custody along with four others on a complaint that men were drinking in public place. Sandeep felt uneasiness and police took him to the nearby hospital and he died,” a police official told the Hindustan Times.
