(BosNewsLife) – The High Court of India’s western state of Gujarat has ordered a state hospital “to continue to give proper treatment” to a 25-year old Christian, whose leg is paralyzed after alleged police brutality, in a case that has come to symbolize the persecution of religious minorities, officials confirmed Wednesday, July 6. The Court was to pass further instructions to the hospital on Thursday July 7, in reply to repeated petitions from the father of the abused Christian, Mr. Amit Babubhai Dhabi, a 3-wheeler taxi driver and member of a local Methodist church, the BosNewsLife New Delhi Bureau learned. In a widely published incident, on April 28, the Police Inspector and three constables of the Bapu Nagar Police Station in the state capital Ahmedabad arrested Amit without a warrant and reportedly beat him up. Advocacy groups say police kept him in custody for four days without registering the arrest or producing him before a magistrate as required by Indian law. Police were apparently informed by an unknown person that Amit, who did not, had a criminal record, was in possession of weapons.
