Salman, 22, told The Indian Express, “I was taken to Varthur police station where three men attacked me mercilessly. I confessed to stealing three car batteries. They took me to the people I sold the batteries to. I was again brought to the police station and asked to confess to other thefts which I had not committed.” The police intensified the torture after Salman claimed that he refused to confess to his other crimes.

My pleas were ignored.”
