Here untimely death in the custody of jail administration must be taken seriously as their laxity ipsofacto obvious and kith and kin of diseased must not be overlooked. Adequate public aid must be provided to bereaved family in order to carry out life and basic needs as compensation is the constitutional right is the bereaved family.
Matter is concerned with untimely death of district jail inmates 1-Suresh Upadhyay, Police station-Chopan , Age-45 years old ,Village-Parval baskatwa District-Sonebhadra
State-Uttar Pradesh . Death time-Night of Monday at 10 P.M. At district hospital Mirzapur.
2-Bhairon Singh , police station- Lalganj, Age-30 years old -District-Mirzapur ,State-Uttar Pradesh , Death time- Tuesday 5:30 A.M. in the morning declared brought dead. At district hospital Mirzapur.

PATNA: Bihar Human Rights Commission (BHRC) on Thursday ordered the state home department to pay a compensation of Rs2 lakh to the widow of a Purnia resident who died in custody in August 2004.
The matter was referred to the BHRC by the Patna high court in January 2014. The BHRC sought a detailed report from Purnia SP and Darbhanga zone IG about the death of Noman Ali who was charged with cutting iron from a pole. He was subsequently thrashed and humiliated by the local mukhiya and villagers. “He was lodged at the Muffasil police station and found hanging by ceiling with his lungi. The post mortem report suggested the cause of death due to asphyxia by hanging and suicidal in nature,” BHRC member Neelmani said
2-It is submitted before the Hon’ble Sir that
On March 23, the commission recommended to the state government to pay Rs 3 lakh compensation to Pradhan’s widow.
The commission also asked the government to pay Rs 1.5 lakh to Mohammad Bilal Ansari and Rs 25,000 to Mohammad Fazal, who was allegedly physically assaulted in custody. “The state government recently paid compensations to the kin of three persons,” said Kanungo.
3-It is submitted before the Hon’ble Sir that
The Commission recommended that an enquiry be undertaken immediately and the concerned police officers and the constables, if found guilty of negligence, be adequately punished.
The Commission took the view that compensation should be paid to the next of the kin of the deceased and recommended a compensation of Rs. One lakh in this respect. Government would be free to reimburse itself, as it considered appropriate, from the delinquent police officers. It would be open to apportion the amount of recovery.
The State Government vide letter dated 15.9.98 submitted that enquiry is conducted in the matter. However, no police officer was found guilty and this report was accepted by Chief Judicial Magistrate, Moradabad. As regards payment of compensation, an amount of Rs.1.00 lakhs has already been paid to the next of kin.
This is humble request of your applicant to you Hon’ble Sir that It can never be justified to overlook the rights of citizenry by delivering services in arbitrary manner by floating all set up norms. This is sheer mismanagement which is encouraging wrongdoers to reap benefit of loopholes in system and depriving poor citizens from right to justice. Therefore it is need of hour to take concrete steps in order to curb grown anarchy in the system. For this your applicant shall ever pray you Hon’ble Sir.
