The SIT chief, deputy superintendent of police (DySP) K T Kamaria, said that all the three accused were nabbed after they gave statements to the probe team.
“We arrested SOG PSI N A Rayma, SOG head constable Mukeshsinh Daulatsinh and Sadiq Usman, a constable with LCB, in the custodial death case. Only these three persons were involved in the offence and we nabbed them after they made statements confessing the crime to us on Thursday,” said Kamaria.
