The writ petition was filed with an attached copy of a newspaper report published on February 14 which reported that Bijoy, who was in police custody at the time, was allegedly tortured by the ASP in the OC’s room. On February 12, Bijoy was picked up by Sub-Inspector Ferdous of Bauphal police station and was taken into custody. That night he was taken to the OC’s room and allegedly tortured for an hour and a half. The newspaper report said when the local union parishad chairman contacted the OC on the phone the next day to inquire about the allegations, he claimed that he was not on the spot during the incident but had heard that the ASP gave the detainee a “mild” beating during the interrogation.
