State Human Rights body seeks report from city police

Kunduli suicide

Bhubaneswar: The Odisha State Human Rights Commission (OSHRC) on Sunday directed the Commissionerate of police to submit a report on the Salia Sahi teenager Ishak Digal death case. The OSHRC has asked the police authorities to submit the report within a week.

The development took place after parents of Ishak filed a complaint at the OSHRC requesting it to order an investigation into the alleged dereliction of duty by the Nayapalli police station officials which led to the death of the boy.

Earlier on Saturday, the twin city police suspended Nayapalli ASI NC Swain and also issued a show cause notice to the IIC Suryamani Pradhan to explain why he should not be suspended for dereliction of duty in such a sensitive case.

The minor boy from Salia Sahi slum in the city went missing from his home on June 6 and later succumbed to injuries a day after at the SCB Medical College Hospital following a road accident while police were unable to trace the boy.
