    POLICE INVESTIGATING POLICE... THE OTHER 2 SUSPECT WILL NOT GIVE THE CORRECT STORY AS LONG AS THEY WILL BE THERE... ALSO THE OIC AND OFFICERS CONCERNED SHOULD BE SUSPENDED UNTILL INVESTIGATIONS ARE OVER

    This is a very serious trend for so many prisoners to die in Police custody especially by hanging. Nobody has learnt lessons to prevent this e.g not to let them have items for self harm like sheets, shoe laces, sharp implements Risk assessments made as to the suicidal tendencies, mental state, Better observation, etc. The officer in-charge at the time should be disciplined.

    Pathetic if same rule applies for innocent. But when suspects of murders in number and child-killers died during investigations, what do we have to say?

    This explanation sounds bogus. How did he die? Did he bang his head on the wall while the 'other inmates' sat there watching?

    The S.L. Police are never to be blamed - they are 'paragons' of virtue.

    My, what a lot of people commit suicide in police custody...is it going to be the norm, where we have become immune to these kind of atrocious fabrications? How sad.
