The recent custodial deaths of P Jayaraj and his son Beniks as a result of Torture by the police of Sathankulam police station is one tip of the ice berg that has got exposed. Torture in Police Custody is endemic across the nation and is an institutionalized practice in all the police forces in the country. Hundreds of people get tortured in custody and many of them die a a result of the same. But many of  these cases never come to light. Few come to light and almost none of the policemen involved get prosecuted for the same. It is time we put an end to this inhuman and uncivilized practice. We need to pass a legislation in Parliament banning Torture. The Bill is pending since 2017. Let us all sign this petition  so that what happened to Jayaraj and Beniks never happens to anybody again.
