KUALA LUMPUR, May 2 — Family members of 22 ethnic Indian men detained under the Security Offences (Special Measures) Act (Sosma) in 2019 pleaded for mercy and demanded justice for their kin whom they said were assaulted and tortured while in the Jelebu Prison.

Some of the family members held a press conference yesterday, where they narrated events told by their detained family members: how they were allegedly beaten with plastic pipes, sticks, chairs and other objects, as well as had their private parts pepper-sprayed.

Some said they were even contemplating suicide to end their misery.

They also expressed fear that their family members may ultimately face the fate which befell milk trader A. Ganapathy, who died in police custody in a case which received widespread attention focusing on custodial death and alleged police brutality on inmates.
