Victim of mob thrashing dies in AP due to police negligence, NHRC issues notice to DGP
On July 17, 2016 in Mohammadiya Palem of Guntur district in Andhra Pradesh, police kept questioning, for three hours, the two young victims of mob thrashing, instead of rushing them to a nearby hospital. Due to this police negligence one of the boys died.

Taking suo motu cognizance of media reports about the incident, the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has issued a notice to Andhra Pradesh's Director General of Police (DGP).

The Commission has observed that the contents of the news report, if true, raise a serious issue of violation of Right to life of a young boy and negligence by the public servants. Reportedly, victims' mob beating continued even after the arrival of the police.

"The reported police action indicates their insensible mind set. Their priority in such a case should have been to save the life," said a statement by the NHRC.

The NHRC has asked the concerned authorities to reply to its notice within four weeks.

According to the media reports, carried on the 19th July, 2016, both the boys were severely thrashed by an unruly village mob suspecting their hand in the mysterious death of a 19-year-old girl.

The boy, who survived the severe public thrashing, told the media that for about three hours they were questioned by the police without any medical help.

According to him the girl was a friend to them since their school days and they had rushed to the village after she had called them saying that she was going to commit suicide.
