AGARTALA, June 25 (TIWN): A deputation was placed to the Prisons Director seeking a Judicial investigation in Amarpur Jail custodial death incident. However, the deputation was reportedly submitted to IG Prison.

While addressing media, referring Amarpur Jail custodial death, Lawyer Bhaskar Debbarma has termed Tripura Jails as “Death Palaces” with the increasing numbers of deaths.

The deputation was placed by All India Lawyers Union (AILU) with the demand of Judicial investigation.

The demand was necessitated as in last 8 months total 4 custodial deaths occurred in Tripura.

Opposition leader and former Chief Minister Manik Sarkar in a letter to the Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb said that in violation of the basic human rights since October last year, two youths died in the police stations and another two in jails.

Demanding judicial probe into the four deaths, Sarkar, requested the Chief Minister to provide government job to one family member of each victim and cautioned the police and jail authorities to prevent recurrence of such "unnatural deaths".

Sarkar, Chief Minister for 20 years (1998-2018), led a four-member delegation of the CPI-M MLAs and visited residence of Sajaio Mog, who died in Amarpur jail (in southern Tripura) on June 17, at the Kamalachhari village in Gomati district.
