GUWAHATI, June 21 - Amitava Sinha, Superintendent of Police, Goalpara, was today convicted in a case of custodial torture by the Court of District and Sessions Judge, Guwahati.

The court found Sinha guilty of voluntarily causing grievous injury to an accused to extort confessions in police custody.

Sinha was convicted under Section 330 of the Indian Penal Code and was awarded imprisonment for two years along with a fine of Rs 50,000.

The police officer in his capacity as Additional Superintendent of Police (Crime) had allegedly tortured Gurmeet Singh, a murder accused, in police custody in 2013.

Singh was arrested from Jammu and Kashmir in 2013 in connection with a Basistha police station case for allegedly murder of businessman Jeet Singh.

However, as per relevant provisions of the CrPC, Sinha was allowed to go on bail with certain riders. Lawyers representing Sinha said they would challenge the order in Gauhati High Court.

Earlier too, Sinha had moved the high court pleading for quashing of the case, which was overturned.
