Saturday August 06, 2011 11:45:57 PM, Agencies

Patna: Barely two months after the brutal killing of four persons in Forbesganj, some policemen in Muzaffarpur August 05 beat 50-year-old Mohammad Shamsuddin to death in full public glare.

A group of policemen of Town and Mithanpura police stations mercilessly assaulted Shamsuddin (50), who stitches clothes in a makeshift shop beside the gate of Dharam Samaj Sanskrit College in Kanhauli Dih area of Muzaffarpur town just before Friday prayers August 05.


Available reports state that two local youths, Mohsin and Chunnu, were sitting at a shop near Madarsa Jamia Nooria Merajul Uloom in Kanhauli Dih when two persons Ranjeet and Pintu from nearby P&T Colony came and took them to nearby Sanskrit College. As soon as they entered the college campus, four people who were already there pounced on them and began beating them mercilessly. The four assaulters were policemen from two police stations.


When they cried for help, Shamsuddin rushed to the spot and tried to stop the assaulting cops from beating the youths. The cops left the youths and pounced on Shamsuddin and beat him mercilessly. Shamsuddin suffered severe head injuries and died on the spot.


As the news about Shamsuddin’s death spread, the villagers gathered and chased the policemen. They managed to flee the spot but the angry villagers set a motorbike of a policeman on fire.


At the same time, District Magistrate (DM) Santosh Kumar Mall and Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Rajesh Kumar rushed to the spot with reinforcement. They were followed by zonal Inspector-General (IG) of police Gupteshwar Pandey and the Deputy Inspector-General (DIG) of police Bacchu Singh Meena.


According to reports, IG announced that probationary sub-inspector (PSI) Sailendra Kumar Singh of Town police station would be dismissed from police service. A named FIR would be lodged against him and the erring cops, who were with the police team.


He added that a speedy trial would be conducted for those found guilty. The DM provided Rs 10,000 to conduct the funeral and other expenses. As the villagers put pressure for more compensation amount the DM is said to have recommended a compensation of Rs 5 lakh from the state government.


The DM said he has requested the home secretary, Amir Subhani, to provide compensation as the deceased hailed from a below poverty line family.
