Aurangabad, April 15:
It has been made clear that the
salon owner Feroz Khan Kadir Khand did not die due to the manhandling by police
but himself fell down unconscious, from the CCTV footage, informed DCP Deepak
Girhe in a press conference on Thursday. He also mentioned that strict action
will be taken against the anti-social elements for providing false information against
the policemen to defame them.
It may be noted that PSI Pravin Wagh
and constable Sandeepan Dharme of the Osmanpura police station on Wednesday had
gone to take action against the salon for breaching the rules imposed to
restrict Corona pandemic. As the salon owner was not present, Wagh directed
Dharme to take necessary action and he went away from the spot. Later, the
owner Feroz Khan came there and suddenly fell down while discussing with the
police. He sustained head injuries and died. After this incident, his relatives
went to the Osmanpura police station with the dead body and alleged that he
died as the police beat him. A huge crowd was gathered at the police station.
The mob demanded that strict action should be taken against the policemen
responsible for the death of Feroz Khan.
Commissioner of police, Dr Nikhil Gupta went
there and transferred the policemen to the headquarters and directed crime
branch PI Avinash Aghav to conduct the investigation. Then the aggrieved mob
took the custody of the dead body. PI Aghav gained the CCTV footage of the
incident. It was found in the footage that Feroz was not manhandled by the
policemen but himself fell down unconscious. The nearby residents rushed him to
the hospital, DCP Girhe said.
Girhe said that in the post mortem report, it is said that the vein of his
heart was blocked and he fell down. He sustained head injury, it has been mentioned.
