In a shocking incident, a 35-year-old security guard, Pradeep Tomar, was mercilessly tortured and beaten to death by cops at Hapur’s police station in Uttar Pradesh on Sunday, October 13, The Times Of India reported. 

Three policemen, including SHO of Philkua police station, have been suspended for the harrowing crime. 

Tomar’s family claimed that he was tortured for over five hours after being called for questioning. They have now demanded that the cops should be booked for murder.

Tomar was forcefully summoned to Chijarsi outpost for interrogation in a murder case. He was told that his brother was involved in the murder. Tomar was accompanied by his 10-year-old son to the outpost who claims that his father was brutally tortured during the interrogation.

“At least 10 policemen were constantly beating up my father. They gave him electric shocks and also stabbed him using screwdrivers. All this while, they were also consuming alcohol and denied water to my father who was crying in pain.” he said.

“I was given a packet of chips to keep quiet at gunpoint,” the child added. 

In a video that went viral, locals and relatives of Tomar examining his body can be seen pointing out at the bruises and injuries on his body. 

After Tomar’s condition deteriorated, the cops rushed him to a nearby local hospital in Hapur and later to a hospital in Meerut where he succumbed to the injuries. 

“Based on the allegations of the family, three policemen have been suspended. Postmortem by a panel of doctors is being conducted in Meerut to ascertain the cause of death following which necessary action will be taken,” additional director general (Meerut Zone) Prashant Kumar said.

The three cops who have been suspended are Yogesh Baliyan, SHO Pilakhua, Ajab Singh, sub-inspector and constable Manish Kumar. 

According to Hapur police, Tomar who worked as security personnel with a private factory in Ghaziabad was picked up for interrogation and suspected of being involved in a murder case.

Hapur ASP Sarvesh Mishra said, “Burnt body of a woman was recovered on August 30. The woman was identified as Preeti, a resident of Noida and relative of Pradeep. She was allegedly murdered by a man called Arun, another relative of Pradeep. He was not directly involved in the murder but could have been a part of the conspiracy.”

The family members of the deceased and locals have been on an indefinite strike demanding FIR against the accused policemen. “Even if he was a criminal, how can one justify such brutality? This is cold-blooded murder and the accused cops should be punished for what they did,” the family said.
