Former Chairman of the Police Service Commission and Former Independent Senator Professor Ramesh Deosaran says the recent deaths of two individuals in police custody raise more than red flags it raises death flags.
Professor Deosarn speaking to Izzo Media said the relevant authorities including the Police Complaint Authority must fully and expeditiously investigate these two very serious occurrences if public confidence in the police service is to be maintained.
He also said this matter should engage all the relevant authorities including the PSC, PCA, the Minister of National Security, The Prime Minister as Head of the National Security Council and even engage the Parliament Joint Select Committees.
Professor Deosaran also said the Police Service has in recent times become politicised.
He told Izzso Media that in an unusual development the present office holder as top cop is seen to be making policy statements on National security.
