Enquiry of the death of Faiz Usmani should be handover to Central Agency.
Faiz Usmani a Muslim youth aged 42, a grocer from Govandi, one who was picked up by the Crime Branch headed by Himanshu Roy from his house on the evening of July 16 and taken him to the Crime Branch lock up at Crawford Market. Himanshu suspect at Usmani having role in the blast at Mumbai on 13 day of July 2011. Usmani who died in the custody of the Crime Branch, has nothing to do with the blast of 13th July 2011.
Charge sheet recently filed by the Anti Terrorism Squad (ATS) for the blast of 13/7/2011 nowhere in the charge sheet name of Usmani has been mentioned as the culprit and involvement of blast. State ATS chief Rakesh Maria told that according to them, Usmani, had no role to play in the serial blasts on July 13, 2011 at Panchratna building, Zaveri Bazar and Dadar.
If the charge sheet of ATS has not mentioned the name of Faize Usmani as the culprit it implies that ATS believes he was innocent. This shows the ham- handed manner in which investigative agencies picked up Muslims merely on suspicion after any blast. The Crime Branch was perhaps trying to be one up on the ATS. This is not great job done by the Crime Branch authorities headed by Himanshu Roy.
A state CID probe by SP P. V. Ugale, mentioned heart attack and high blood pressure as the reasons for Usmanis death. According to him, Usmani, a patient of high blood pressure, was tense about being interrogated. The histopathological report says there is no external mark or injury on the body, he might have tortured mentally up to that extend, that his blood pressure has gone high and he suffered with brain hemorrhage and died.
No external mark or injury on the body on Faize Usmani does not given clean chit to the police. It is not necessary that Faiz Usmani be physically tortured but he may be mentally tortured he may be exploited for his 17 year son as his brother Afzal Usmani was exploited.
Cops involved in the death of Faiz Usmani, should not be let off in the name insufficient evidence against police, while doing so the moral of police will gone high while committing legal terrorism especially on Muslims. To kill an innocent person with some particular community by the law enforcing body i.e. police or perpetual intimidation of a society members or make them scared for arrest for the crime which they have not committed is the legal terrorism which should be stopped by the High Court or Supreme Court. Unjust, unwarranted and unauthorized atrocities on Muslims by the police producing a feeling of hate and biased attitude in the Muslims for the police. Strict action be taken against all the culprit police for murder and let report be come in public.
Police is behaving like legal terrorists. Police have got license to picked up any Muslim youth without any warrant and kill an innocent human being without any sin or crime most of them are innocent illiterate, uneducated Muslim youths, which is a kind of terrorism in a legal way. Police officers are not authorised to kill anybody. It is the Judicial Authority to assign the punishment to a culprit, that is also after scrutinizing full circumstances. If circumstantial evidences are not favoring the person then court is also not authorised to give him corporal punishment or even simple punishment.
It is prayed:-
a. Sack and terminated the police team for unauthorised detention of Faize Usmani as the Chembur Crime Branch was not authorised for inquire to Faize.
b. Sack Himanshu Roy the police officer with immediate effect.
c. Probe of the custodial death of Faize Usmani be given to any central agency.
d. Ad-entrime compensation be fixed for the family of Faize Usmani.
e. Appoint any member of the family in police force.
e. Reserve 20% seats for Muslims in Police, Judicial and Administrative services.
