In India, policemen misuse their powers and take the law into their own hands just because they are supported by thugs and corrupt politicians.
Bandra boy, Arun Ferreira too suffered at the hands of the police for several years (from 2007 to 2013). He was arrested as the police thought he was the leader of a terror group. In prison, he was stripped naked and beaten very badly on several occasions. The food given to him to eat was also stale (The dal was watery and the rice full of stones). Sometimes, he was even denied food for days together.
