NEW DELHI — Maulana Mahmood Madani, President of Jamiat Ulama-i-Hind, on Thursday slammed the Uttar Pradesh government for its failure to protect human rights in the state and sought a high level inquiry into the custodial death of a youth Altaf in Kasganj district.

Maulana Madani demanded immediate action against the police crew involved and Rs 50 lakh as compensation to the family of the deceased.

Jaimiat chief while referring to the series of police encounters and custodial deaths in Uttar Pradesh said that all these incidents should be investigated by a high level committee under the supervision of the Supreme Court.
