Two months after the custodial death of a youth in the Borivli general lock-up, the Mumbai police recently suspended a sub-inspector and four constables. The suspension order was issued on Tuesday, pending an inquiry against the five personnel by the crime branch.

On April 22, the victim, Akash Kharade, a Kandivli resident, was waiting his turn to use the lavatory in the lock-up, when he "suddenly collapsed". He had sustained head injuries. He was taken to Shatabdi Hospital, where he was declared dead. "Samta Nagar PSI Santosh Borade and four constables have been suspended," said DCP Pravinkumar Patil.

Kharade's family had alleged foul play in the case. The crime branch arrested Kharade and three aides in a murder case on April 18 and handed them over to the Samta Nagar police the next day.
