Why do custodial deaths persist?

The recent deaths of Sivabalan Subramaniam and A Ganapathy have once again raised a public outcry that not enough has been done to address deaths in custody.

Astro Awani’s Sharaad Kuttan and Melisa Idris ask lawyer Yohendra Nadarajan and Centre for Independent Journalism adviser Ding Jo Ann why custodial deaths persist.

Thanks for dropping by! The views expressed in Aliran's media statements and the NGO statements we have endorsed reflect Aliran's official stand. Views and opinions expressed in other pieces published here do not necessarily reflect Aliran's official position.

Our voluntary writers work hard to keep these articles free for all to read. But we do need funds to support our struggle for Justice, Freedom and Solidarity. To maintain our editorial independence, we do not carry any advertisements; nor do we accept funding from dubious sources. If everyone reading this was to make a donation, our fundraising target for the year would be achieved within a week.
