Custodial violence and torture
On 23 May 2010, police officers, including a woman police constable tortured and abused a mother and her 12?year?old son in Rajouri Garden Police Outpost in Delhi. The officers forced Mala (name changed) to strip naked in front of her minor son who was detained at the station, and ordered her to have sex with him. Upon refusal, one of the police officers demanded Mala to have sex with him. Mala, a slum dweller from Delhi's Mayapuri area had gone to the police outpost with her husband to enquire as to why her two sons were detained at the police station.
