Goa CM favours impartial inquiry into jail-assault on Ravindra

GOANEWS DESK, PANAJI | 26 March 2016 23:20 IST

Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar has favoured an impartial inquiry into the horrific incident of assault on a mining activist in the jail.

Ravindra Velip, a tribal activist from Caurem-Pirla, was blind folded and beaten up mercilessly in Sada sub-jail, when five of them were locked up in a judicial custody for stopping ore transport.

“I am waiting for a report from IG Prisons Elvis Gomes. If required, I would go for an impartial inquiry”, Parsekar today told the media persons.

He agreed that the inquiry by the jail authorities about the incident in the jail premises could be biased in an attempt to protect the jail officials.

Velip in his complaint has said four unknown persons blind-folded and beat him up, but with shoes, which makes it evident that they were not prisoners.

IG Prisons, said the CM, is expected to submit his report tomorrow.

Social activists have demanded a judicial inquiry into the assault case.

Blind folded an beaten up. Very unfortunate and sad, but is he was blindfolded why was he implicating Faldessai and others.Not that I am a supporter of Faldessai or whatever.

Also was he examined for injuries, etc. Is the hand broken?

Why was he in the jail for?
