Dasna jailer brands inmate
The inmate has alleged that the deputy jailer brutally beat him up for not giving "extortion money" after which he branded his name on his back.
GHAZIABAD: A case of inhumanity has been reported from Dasna Jail with a deputy jailer being accused of branding his initials with a hot iron rod on the back of an inmate. The victim, Karan alias Chottu, a resident of Karawal Nagar in northeast Delhi, was lodged in jail two months ago on charges of murder. On Tuesday, when he was produced before the city court, he narrated his nightmarish experience.

The deputy jailer, Rajesh Kumar Pandey, allegedly brutally thrashed the inmate after which he reportedly sustained a fracture in the neck and leg. The victim's wife had gone to the jail to meet her husband last Friday and Sunday, but jail authorities did not allow her to meet him.

The wife has requested the court to conduct the inmate's medical examination to determine the atrocities done to him. The court has summoned Dasna jail superintendent for the next court hearing on December 12 to reply on the issue.

The inmate has alleged that the deputy jailer brutally beat him up for not giving "extortion money" after which he branded his name on his back. Counsel for Karan, S P Singh, on Tuesday moved an application in the court seeking strict action against Pandey. Singh has alleged in his application that Pandey had allegedly demanded Rs 60,000 from his client and forcefully extracted Rs 10,000 from his pocket on December 3.

When Karan pleaded that he could not give such big amount to him, Pandey threatened that if he failed to give Rs 50,000, he would face dire consequences. On December 4, Pandey, along with three other people, started beating him up. On December 5, Pandey beat Karan again and allegedly branded "RKP" on his back," the court application cited.
