On 4th August the life of Satnam Singh Mann, a law under graduate from National Law university, Lucknow, came to an abrupt end due to unnatural causes in judicial custody of the Karunagappally Police Station in Kollam District of Kerala. Satnam who was arrested on 1st August on charges of trespassing the sabha of Maa Amritanandamayi, was also a former student of Bishop cotton Shimla and belonged to a respected family Gaya District, Bihar. He had simply gone there to seek Maa's blessings and he was overtaken by anxiety when he tried to barge on Maa's podium and speak to her and he has been suffering from mental illness for a while.

On 3rd August Satnam's brother Vimal Singh had met him and found him in good health and spirits. Next day when his body was produced before him there were thirty injury marks and some seemed to have been caused by hot burning rods." Vimal was informed that Satnam was found unconscious in the Mental Asylum where they had shifted him. Soon after when he was taken to the Government medical college at Thiruvananthapuram where he was declared dead just before midnight.

The inquest, held in the presence of the First Class Judicial Magistrate, Thiruvananthapuram and the Additional District Magistrate, found that there were over 30 marks of torture on the body of Satnam. It was also suggested that several of the marks were not of torture by hand but by iron or wooden rods.


Doctors at the Mental Health Centre said that Mann was brought there with injuries suffered obviously due to torture. He was brought with his limbs tied together, they said. However, doctors at the District Hospital in Kollam to where he was first taken from the prison said there were no signs of torture on his body.

Please join us in demanding a fair, impartial and thorough investigation, punishment of the guilty and secure justice to Satnam and his bereaved family.

      While five of them were given punishment transfers, one was terminated from service. Dr Maya Raghavan and Dr Ramachandran Nair of Government Mental Health Centre, Peroorkada and Dr Hareesh Mani of Kollam district hospital, Dr Chintha Sukumaran of Karunagappally taluk hospital and Dr Kiran of Karunagappally taluk hospital were the doctors who were handed punishment transfer.

      Life is very very precious. That too human life even more. The system of police introduced by the British after 1857 war of independence, has the main aim of putting down the people of this country brutally. No European police is as brutal ( not even 1/10th ) as our police. Why?

      have we not got independence ?
