 Rein Bazar police on Saturday registered an FIR (Cr. No. 60/2014) against IPS officer Tarun Joshi and a sub-inspector for their alleged role in the death of Mohammed Abdul Khader, 24, a resident of Bagh-e-Jahan Ara in Yakutpura. Khader, a student of Rein Bazar police station limits and an accused in a murder case of 2010, died at a hospital late on Friday night.

A complaint was lodged by Khursheed Begum, the victim's mother, against then DCP (South) Tarun Joshi and sub-inspector P Ramesh after Khader succumbed to injuries sustained in police custody.

According to the complaint lodged with Hyderabad police commissioner Anurag Sharma, Khadar was named as accused number 6 in the murder of history-sheeter Nawaz Sharif in 2010.

In her complaint, Khursheeda alleged that Khadear was directed to report at the Rein Bazar police station in September 12, 2013, where he was allegedly beaten up by Ramesh and constables Qamar Ali and Jithender with fibre sticks, boots and rubber belts on his elbows, back and private parts. He was later taken to the DCP (South) office at Purani Haveli, where he was again beaten in the presence of Joshi.

The victim's family claimed that Khadar's health had steadily deteriorated after the incident despite medical treatment at various corporate hospitals across the city. After his conditioned worsened three days ago, he was taken to Apple Hospital where he breathed his last around 11.30 pm on Friday.

When contacted, Joshi denied that Khader was ever brought to his office. "There is no truth in the allegations as he was not brought to the DCP office. The murder happened in 2010 and much before my tenure as DCP. It is surprising that this complaint is lodged six months after my tenure."

Meanwhile, Rein Bazar sub-inspector Ramesh said that the complaint was false and that a clear picture would emerge after the post-mortem examination. A case was registered under section 174 (Suspicious death) of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC).
