Fate: He was picked up by the police and was allegedly tortured in the lock-up. Khare finally died on March 2, 2006. His relatives cited police beating as the reason for his death.

Family: Khare’s mother Munni Bai moved a Vidisha court for justice. Only last week, the court issued arrest warrants against the Town police station Inspector and two constables.

Case: To weaken the case, the police apparently manipulated the post mortem report, which said Khare had died of heart attack. However, the Judicial Magistrate who heard the case has issued notices against the three doctors who performed the autopsy.

Khare was not a hardened criminal, only a quarrelsome drunkard.
