Written By Ankit Prasad | Mumbai | Published:


  • Bus conductor Ashok Kumar's family threatens to sue Gurugram Police for the torture allegedly inflicted on him after he was accused in Pradyuman Thakur's murder
  • Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar refuses to respond over the probe's inconsistencies and allegations that Ashok Kumar had been 'fixed'
  • Khattar callously brushes aside the threat of a lawsuit from Ashok Kumar

Just a day after it emerged that an innocent man may have been subjected to horrific torture at the hands of the Gurugram police in an effort to force him to confess to Pradyuman Thakur's murder, the chief minister of Haryana has displayed a shocking arrogance and high-handedness regarding the matter.

Following bus conductor Ashok's family saying that they would be filing a Human Rights case against the Gurugram Police, Republic TV asked Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar for a comment on the matter.

However, not only does the Khattar brush the question aside with a wave of his hand, but he's also heard saying 'Let him do'. The callous remark, reckless and high-handed in itself, also adequately encapsulates the uphill battle faced by Ashok Kumar, who has been at the mercy of the giant state machinery for two months.
