Mangaluru: Week-long Assault on Inmate by Others in City Jail – Case Reported Late

Mangaluru: A resident of Mysuru road in Bengaluru, who had been lodged in the district jail here, has come out with a horrible tale of how he was harassed and beaten up for a full week by some other inmates.


Madhusudan had been arrested by the women’s police team here on July 1 on charges of trafficking of women. Under court orders, he was sent to judicial custody. He was put in a cell which had a majority of inmates belonging to a certain community.

Safwan of the ‘Target’ gang, who has been jailed for filming businessmen engaged in forced sex for blackmail, has also been in the same cell. The Goonda Act had been slapped on him. Although he got a reprieve from it from the state high court, he landed in jail again for another crime.

He, along with one Sameer and others, kept assaulting Madhusudan – reminding one of junior students being ragged by seniors in colleges – and also got him to wash their clothes for a week.

On Thursday, Madhusudan was released by a local court. He filed a complaint at the Barke police station regarding the harassment and assault by Safwan and others.
