A prosecution witness in a case involving three bomb blasts in Mumbai has told a special court that while in custody twelve years ago he was forced to drink urine of another accused and to have sex with a stray dog.    According to a report in The Indian Express, the witness’ statement read that cops had forced him to drink the urine of another accused who was made to drink the former’s urine. The witness also says that he was forced to have sex with a stray dog and that he was regularly beaten up in custody between April and May 2013.    Police have reportedly charge sheeted 16 people in the case which involved three blasts in Mumbai between December 2002 and March 2003. The attacks had taken place at Mumbai Central station, Vile Parle and at Mulund. The witness in his statement had reportedly revealed the role of Saquib Nachan, an alleged SIMI member who he alleges had carried the explosives.   Reportedly, the witness was declared hostile by the Special Public Prosecutor after deposing before the court and had corroborated another witness’ statement in 2003 making a similar allegation which was denied by the police.    When the witness deposed before the court on April 23, he refused to mention details of his ordeal when questioned by the defence lawyer saying that “I cannot tell those dirty things which they asked me to do in the crime branch office as women advocates are present (here) in the court”.   Read more at: ‘Cops forced me to drink urine, have sex with dog’
