While the exact cause behind the deterioration of the health of the youth is yet to be ascertained, his mother held the police responsible for it.
“My two sons got into a fight yesterday following which I called up the police thinking that they would intervene and stop the fight. Instead, the inspector-in-charge of Khandagiri Police Station and some other policemen thrashed my sons so severely that one of them started bleeding from mouth,” alleged the mother of the youth, Sulata Sahu.
“They also thrashed my husband and later took him along with my two sons into custody. As my son became critical, they shifted him to the Capital Hospital today,” she added.
