Police: No proof Ganapathy was assaulted in custody

There is no evidence that A Ganapathy passed away due to assault while under police custody, Gombak District police chief Arifai Tarawe said.

Preliminary investigations revealed that the deceased never complained of assault when he was brought before a magistrate three times on Feb 25, March 2 and March 6.

"The deceased also did complain to the medical officer or the assistants when he was brought for treatment on Feb 28, March 3, March 6 and March 7," he told reporters at a press conference today.

Arifai said investigations are ongoing and the goal was to convince the prosecutors to conduct an inquest.
