"Imtiaz Ahmed, an accused in a Narcotics case from Pulwama has allegedly died in police custody while another is battling for his life at Base Hospital in Badami Bagh. Imtiaz’s family claims he suffered grievous injuries during interrogation. An impartial probe must be initiated to ascertain the circumstances leading to Imtiyaz's death," he said.

Necessitating on measures to prevent police excesses, Mehdi said, "It is important to work within the bounds of law while dealing with the public and suspects. The intrinsic rights of every person to life, liberty, and dignity are unquestionably recognised by the court. It emphasises how gravely these fundamental rights are violated when people die while they are being held captive. The case draws attention to this problem and highlights the pressing need to protect human rights, especially in the context of interactions between law enforcement and people in detention. Pursuit of justice and the defence of human rights continue to be hampered by the distressing reality of custodial deaths."
