Noida, 17th May. 
The Gautam Buddh Nagar Police have suspended all police personnel stationed at the Chipiyana ‘chowki’ in Greater Noida West following the death of a youth under mysterious circumstances while in police custody. The youth reportedly hanged himself inside the chowki, but his family and relatives have accused the policemen of pressurizing him into taking the extreme step.

Responding to the gravity of the situation, Additional Commissioner of Police (Law and Order) and Deputy Commissioner of Police Central rushed to the Chipiyana chowki in the Bisrakh police station area. After assessing the situation and gathering firsthand accounts, Police Commissioner Laxmi Singh announced the suspension of the entire staff at the police chowki. Additionally, a formal complaint has been lodged to investigate the events leading to the youth’s death.

According to DCP Central Noida, the victim has been identified as Yogesh Kumar, a resident of Aligarh, who worked at a local workshop in the Chipiyana area. Kumar was brought to the chowki on Wednesday night for questioning following allegations made against him by a colleague.

On Thursday morning at around 10 a.m., Kumar reportedly committed suicide by hanging himself inside the police barrack. While the exact reason for his suicide remains unclear, Kumar’s family has made serious allegations against the policemen. Speaking to the media, Kumar’s family claimed that the police demanded ₹5 lakh for his release. “I gave them ₹50,000 and also ₹1,000 for buying liquor. I was there at the chowki at night. I told them that I would give the remaining ₹4.5 lakh by morning. The policemen told me that they would release my brother after receiving the money,” Kumar’s brother said, adding that the next morning, “my brother was killed by policemen.”

The incident has sparked outrage and demands for justice. The police have assured a thorough investigation into the matter, and the suspension of the chowki staff is seen as a step towards ensuring accountability.
