Rights group wants inquiry into detainee's death

June 27, 2011 1:44 A.M. (Updated: June 27, 2011 1:44 A.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The Palestinian Center for Human Rights has called upon the government in Gaza to seriously investigate the death of Ibrahim Akram al-Aa’raj, 45, who died Saturday in police custody.

Al-Aa’raj died at the Abu Oraiban police station in Nussairat camp, the rights group said noting that it was concerned he was subjected to torture and cruel treatment during his detention over two days.

The anti-drug unit has come under suspicion this month after a different detainee died in custody and another suffered a bullet wound to the foot while in custody of the same police unit, the PCHR said.
