Retired Indian police allege custodial killings

Another policeman in the south Indian state of Kerala has spoken of being a witness to the killing of a left wing militant in police custody nearly thirty years ago.

The policeman sent a sworn statement to a newspaper giving details of the alleged killing of the militant.

The claim follows a similar allegation made by a retired constable a few weeks ago.

Correspondents say the claims could lead to the re-opening of several cases from the 1970s concerning left wing militants.
