The enquiry report into the ‘custodial death’ of a teenager in Meghalaya was submitted to National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), a government official said on Wednesday. “I have received the enquiry report on the alleged ‘custodial death’ of Sngewlem Kharsati and the same was forwarded to the state government and NHRC,” East Khasi Hills district Deputy Commissioner Jopthiaw Lyngdoh said. The government had instituted a magisterial inquiry into the death of seventeen-year-old Sngewlem Kharsati on May 9. Sngewlem, a farmer from Puriang village in Meghalaya’s East Khasi Hills district, was declared brought dead at Shillong Civil hospital here. His family members have alleged that Sngewlem was brutally beaten up by policemen at Mawryngkneng Police Outpost due to which he died. Earlier, Sngewlem’s brother Shibor Kharsati had alleged that the policeman without any rhyme or reason attacked and beat him up on the road in full public view and pulled him inside the car and took him to Mawryngkneng police outpost. He also claimed that his brother was further subjected to severe beating by the policemen, including the officer-in charge Manbha Rymbai until he died. The police, later, took his body to Shillong Civil Hospital, where it was officially registered brought dead.
