Jammu: The Crime Investigation Department (CID) on Wednesday said that that the remarks made through social media about torturing of an under investigation person was factually incorrect.
“Recent comments about CID investigations in the public domain through social media are unfortunate for two reasons: for being factually incorrect and making CID officers vulnerable to increased threats and enhanced risks,” reads an official statement of CID issued on Wednesday.
“It is also fraught with the risks of adversely influencing the witnesses and the course of investigation. It is factually incorrect that an under investigation person was tortured. CID investigations are done professionally and as per law. Each and every arrested person is presented before competent court periodically as per law,” it said.
It added that every arrested suspect has access to health care and doctors. “It is neither proper nor lawful to discuss and pass verdict like remarks in the public domain about ongoing complex investigations.”
“CID is answerable to the courts on all aspects including whether amenities and rights available to a person under custodial investigation and his legal obligations to cooperate in the investigation are being complied,” the statement added
