IAS officer begins inquiries into allegations against ASP Balveer Singh

IAS officer Amudha has begun her inquiries into allegations of custodial torture by suspended IPS officer Balveer Singh on Monday.   The custodial torture came to light when three men shared their ordeal on social media and it became viral. 

The men claimed that they were taken to the Ambasamudram police station where they were beaten up and their teeth were broken by the ASP. Subsequently, the officer was suspended.  A report submitted by the sub-collector revealed that similar complaints were received against officials from Kallidaikurichi and VK Puram police stations.

Tirunelveli district collector then recommended the state government to form a committee with senior officials to investigate the issue. Based on the recommendation, the state government has formed a committee and appointed the principal secretary to the rural development department Amudha as the head of the committee. She was directed to submit a report within a month.

The IAS officer commenced her inquiry at Ambasamudram tahsildar office on Monday.  Public were advised to appear before her to register their complaint, record their confession or provide additional details regarding the case.  If any of the victims wish to remain anonymous, they could also submit their complaint by dialing the number – 8248887233 – between 10 am and 4 pm.
