Chandigarh, September 4

The Punjab and Haryana High Court today issued a notice to Punjab and its DGP on a petition by a Mansa resident alleging that her husband was allegedly tortured by the excise staff leading to brain haemorrhage and paralysis.

The Bench also asked Mansa SSP to look into the matter and submit a status report within two weeks. The direction by Justice Jasgurpreet Singh Puri came on a criminal petition filed by Kanta Rani. Appearing on her behalf, advocate HC Arora submitted that her husband was picked up by officials of Excise Department on June 18 from her residence. Although no criminal case was registered against him, he was taken to the Excise Department's office, where he was brutally tortured. — TNS
