J Jayaraj, 59, and Beniks Immanuel, 31, were subjected to a brutal thrashing, which resulted in rectal bleeding and eventual death, according to a letter to government officials written by Jayaraj’s wife J Selvarani. Was the incident part of systemic police violence in India? Why is there no formal statement from the police?
