Man commits suicide in UP Police custody

New Delhi, June 5 (IANS) A 30-year-old man committed suicide by consuming poison in the custody of Uttar Pradesh Police, a Delhi Police officer said Wednesday.

Rinku, a resident of Aligarh, was arrested Tuesday from Delhi’s Khajoori Khas area by a joint team of Delhi Police and UP Police for eloping with a 14-year-old girl, who also belongs to Aligarh.

“After Rinku’s arrest, he was handed over to UP Police. On the way to Aligarh he got sick and was rushed to a nearby hospital where doctors declared him dead. The cause of the death was consumption of some poisonous substance,” the Delhi Police official said.
