THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: It is now being suspected that S R Sreejith, who died in police custody in Varapuzha, fell victim to an old police third-degree torture method called ‘urutti kola’ (rolling of a heavy wooden log over the body of the accused), which is not supposedly practised by the police anymore.

This suspicion is given strength by the post-mortem report that weapons could have been used for third-degree torture of Sreejith. The muscles on both the thighs of Sreejith were found to be similarly damaged. The post-mortem report also says that this injury could have been caused by some weapon similar to a lathi. The investigating team has sought experts’ opinion on forming a five-member medical board to confirm this. The medical board is to ascertain how Sreejith received these injury marks.

The post-mortem report from the Alappuzha Medical College Hospital had earlier revealed that Sreejith had received brutal treatment at the police station and that his death was caused by the rupturing of his small intestine.

There were 18 injury marks on Sreejith’s body because of heavy beating that he received. The post-mortem reported handed over to the investigating team also said that Sreejith had already contracted infection when he was brought to the hospital, and that most of his physical organs were dysfunctional.

Sreejtih’s family seeks CBI probe

Sreejith’s family has sought for a CBI probe in his death, pointing it out that it is ridiculous that a complaint against the police is being probed by the police itself.

His relatives also said that they don’t understand why the Chief Minister or other representatives of the government haven’t paid them a visit yet.
