The Koderma district administration on Thursday suspended four policemen, including station in-charge of Domchanch police station, after a 55-year-old man allegedly died in police custody.

 

Body of 55-year-old Arjun Saw, a resident of Sabhi village, was found in Nirupahadi forest area, a few kilometres from the police station, on Wednesday morning.

However, the family of the deceased alleged he was picked by a police team led by police station in-charge Shashikant Kumar and his body was dumped in forest after he died due to his injuries.

“My father was on way to a relative’s place around 4 am on Wednesday. He deals in asbestos scrap collection. He was stopped and picked by the policemen who often collect illegal money from scrap dealers. People who saw him being taken by policemen informed us. When we rang on my father’s number, the person who responded said he was at the police station. When we went there, the policemen said his phone was there but he was absconding,” said Sikandar, son of Arjun Saw.
