A 24-year-old man was allegedly abducted by five unidentified policemen, subjected to extreme physical and mental torture and dumped at a South Delhi jungle.
According to the victim, the abductors assaulted him so brutally that he was paralysed waist down. They also gave him electric shocks, he said.
He also claimed that two more youths, who were also abducted by the same group of men, were subjected to the same degree of torture at a godown located somewhere on the Delhi-Haryana border.
The incident took place on June 26, and the victim has been identified as Mohammad Parvez, a resident of Hauz Rani in south Delhi. Parvez underwent treatment at AIIMS and is now recuperating at his house after, being discharged from the hospital.
As Parvez is too traumatised, his father, Liyakat Ali, has been telling police the story.
Apparently, the incident happened when Parvez was waiting for a bus in Sainik Farms to return home after work, when a white Bolero stopped near him.
"One of the occupants of the vehicle came out and asked Parvez the way to Gurgaon. They also offered him a lift in their vehicle, saying that Hauz Rani would fall on the way and they would take just R10 as fare. As soon as Parvez got into the car, they overpowered him and gagged his mouth. They also gagged two more youth, who were already inside the vehicle," said Ali, quoting his son.
According to Parvez, they drove for almost an hour, before taking them inside a godown. Claiming that they were police officers, Ali said, they started interrogating Parvez and the other two youth about their involvement in trading of drugs.
"They undressed them and forced them to urinate on an electric heater, and gave them electric shocks on other parts of their bodies. My son underwent physical torture throughout the night. When he was almost paralysed, they dumped him in a jungle in Vasant Kunj," said Ali, adding that Parvez was spotted by some passersby, who rushed him to AIIMS.
Parvez's family, who believes that the abductors were policemen, has decided not to pursue the matter with the police.
"Since my son is alive and back home, we don't want to pursue our case with the local police," added Ali.
