This sharpened criticism has forced Modi to launch a rebuttal? As this report? "One cannot see the numbers in isolation; you have to put it in perspective.We have 22 crore people in Uttar Pradesh — you cannot compare us withKerala which has 35 crore people"Additional Director General (ADG) of Uttar Pradesh Police Anand Kumar said adding that the subject does not come directly under his jurisdiction "I am not contesting the numbers given by NHRC but in a populous state like Uttar Pradesh a lot of these deaths might have also happened due to natural causes" he said ADGBhushan Kumar Upadhyay of Maharashtra Police says that the numbers were worse before "With better medical facilities counselling sessions and marking prisoners with suicidal tendencies we are trying to bring the number of deaths in prisons down to a minimum" he said Of the 74 deaths in police custody in 2017 Maharashtra leads the tables with 16 deaths recorded until 2 August 2017 Telangana comes a distant second with 7 deaths while Karnatakarecorded a third-highest 5 deaths in police custody this year Police custody deaths in India in 2017 A senior police official with the Maharashtra Police who wished to remain anonymous suggested that the numbers are not a cause of worry "I don’t think the situation is particularly bad here It can also be because of the sincerity of a police force in keeping records— we are sometimes too efficient in putting everything on paper" he said "Often the numbers are misleading Recently our men helped a dying beggar on the streets and moved her to a hospital but the doctor declared her dead on arrival Now this gets recorded in the list of police custody deaths in Mumbai" he added "Another incident involved a very sick prisoner Since the jail was under-staffed they [the prisons department] requested us to send a man to guard the prisoner in the hospital When the prisoner died in the hospital due to his sickness the death got recorded as a police custody death" Of the 16 deaths in Maharashtra two have been recorded in Mumbai according to the RTI In July a Dalit boy Vinayakan committed suicide in Kerala allegedly after he suffered physical and mental torture in police custody— an allegation that was later confirmed in the post-mortem

final on Friday and will face 2015 winner Stan Wawrinka for the title after the Swiss outdueled Andy Murray in a five-set epic Nadal demolished Austrian pretender and sixth seed Dominic Thiem 6-3 6-4 6-0 to return to the final at Roland Garros for the first time since the last of his nine titles in 2014 Wawrinka became the oldest finalist in Paris in 44 years with a thrilling 6-7 (6/8) 6-3 5-7 7-6 (7/3) 6-1 win over World No 1Murray Rafael Nadal raises his arms in victory after defeating Dominic Thiem in the semi-final at Roland Garros "I’ve played a very good event played well in all the matches and today was no exception" said Nadal who has lost just 29 games in reaching Sunday’s championship match "I started a bit more nervous but then I played well "It’s true that Dominic played with more mistakes than usual today but it was windy" Nadal is bidding to become the first man to win 10 titles at a single Grand Slam and leads the head-to-head with Wawrinka 15-3 "I always say the same but it’s true Nine or 10 it’s only 10 percent more It’s true 10 is a beautiful number nine is my favourite but if I win it will become 10" However he will be mindful of another upset after the Swiss stunned an injury-hit Nadal three years ago to claim the Australian Open crown "I have been playing a great event But Stan is playing unbelievable" said Nadal who despite his imposing record has split the past six meetings with Wawrinka "It will be a super hard final and I will need to play at my very best" Nadal withstood a shaky start before reeling off four games in succession to subdue Thiem who was looking to be just the second Austrian finalist at a Slam after 1995 French Open winner Thomas Muster Thiem is the only player to defeat Nadal on clay this season but the fourth seed barely gave his rival a sniff and conceded just nine points in a chastening final set US Open champion Wawrinka 32 triumphed in a pulsating four hour 34 minute battle of shotmaking and endurance and will target a fourth Slam title this weekend For Murray his wait to become Britain’s first men’s champion in Paris since Fred Perry in 1935 goes on "It’s incredible to be in another Roland Garros final" said Wawrinka the oldest finalist since 33-year-old Niki Pilic was runner-up in 1973 His win avenged defeat to Murray at the same stage in 2016 and the Swiss suggested the Briton was nowhere near that form on Friday "Last year he was much more aggressive but last year he was stronger" said Wawrinka after reaching his fourth final at the majors "Today I think he’s less confident He played a bit less fast He was a little more hesitant and that gave me a bit more time to actually install my game" But Wawrinka is in no doubt as to the nature of the obstacle that stands in his way of a second Roland Garros triumph "I think to play Rafa on clay in French Open in a final is probably the biggest challenge you can have in tennis He’s the best player ever on clay" Murray the 2016 runner-up to Novak Djokovic admitted that Wawrinka was the stronger player in the end "I tried to keep fighting but he played well at the end" said Murray "I was a tiebreak from getting to the final in a tournament which I came into struggling" For Thiem it was a disappointing end to a tournament which had seen him defeat Djokovic in the quarter-finals "I was not on top of my game and the result everybody saw" he said "It’s nice to be in the semis again but I’m really disappointed because I just couldn’t play the way I wanted to I don’t know why yet so I have to find some reasons" Written by

More Top NewsKidambi Srikanth’s last-minute withdrawal from the China Open Superseries Premier badminton championships was almost inevitable Continuous tournament play by the World No 2 over the past month with outstanding results in the three competitions in which he featured has taken its toll on his body and induced him to skip the tournament in which he announced his arrival on the world stage in 2014 by beating the legendary Lin Dan in front of the latter’s home crowd The portents were there when he sported a tight band below his right knee during the final of the French Open Superseries which he won handily in two straight games from Japan’s 40th-ranked giant-killer Kenta Nishimoto after edging past compatriot and regular sparring-partner at the Pullela Gopichand Badminton Academy (PGBA) HS Prannoy in the penultimate round File photo of Kidambi Srikanth AFP The French Open title was Srikanth’s fourth of the year from five entries into the finals the sole aberration being a narrow defeat in the Singapore Open summit clash at the hands of another PGBA trainee B Sai Praneeth It came hard on the heels of a fabulous triumph in the Denmark Open Superseries Premier where he tamed world champion Viktor Axelsen at the quarter-final stage in the Dane’s own den in Odense Shortly after returning from Paris the Guntur-born 24-year-old was pressurised into playing in the Indian Nationals in Nagpur a tournament in which all the icon players of the country participated for the first time in the last decade It was clear from his initial rounds itself that he was not at his best as he struggled past Shubham Prajapati in the quarter-finals (at 21-17 23-21) and upcoming youngster Lakshya Sen (by a 21-16 21-18 scoreline) in the semis The knee problem got aggravated in the course of a long-drawn final against Prannoy who is ranked 11th on the Badminton World Federation (BWF) computer and knows Srikanth’s game inside out The latter had to fight tooth and nail to retrieve the second game after losing the opener; and the massive effort appeared to have drained the top seed inducing him to let the decider go without much of a fight Srikanth’s court movement in that third game looked positively laboured and it appeared to the jam-packed audience as if he was either allowing his friend and batch-mate to take the national crown as compensation for Prannoy’s narrow loss to him in the French Open semifinal or saving his dicky knee for future combat The announcement of his pull-out from the China Open therefore did not come as a big surprise though he has revealed that he is only taking a precautionary week-long break and that he will be back at the Hong Kong Open Superseries which is being played from 21 to 26 November The major question that arises from Srikanth’s withdrawal from the China Open is: Has his move to skip this premier competition in which virtually all the world’s top players are participating cost the Indian ace the World No 1 ranking There are several points that must be considered before coming to a conclusion on this issue First and foremost is the question of whether Srikanth has been hankering for the premier spot in the BWF rankings From all accounts it has not been his major ambition as he had clarified in a courtside interview at the end of the French Open “I will take a decision on my participation in the remaining tournaments in South-East Asia (like the China Open Superseries Premier the Hong Kong Open SS and the Macau Open) in consultation with my coaches after I get back to Hyderabad” he had said “Basically it is his (coach Mulyo Handoyo’s) call to decide on my participation in those tournaments In any case I don’t have any points to defend in these tournaments so my overall position (in the BWF rankings) will not change whether I participate or not So there is really no pressure on me to take part in them I do want to become World No 1 but am not overly bothered about that” The second point to be considered is the current points position going into the China Open Srikanth with 73403 points trails the top-ranked Axelsen who has 77930 points by 4527 points He is ahead of the third-ranked South Korean Son Wan Ho (71738) by a little over 1600 points Chinese legend Lin Dan is fourth with 68746 points The points awarded for winning a Superseries Premier championship are: 9200 for the winner 7800 for the runner-up 6420 for both the losing semi-finalists 5040 for the losing quarter-finalists 3600 for those reaching the last-16 and 2220 for those losing in the first round of the competition It meant that even if Srikanth were to win the China Open he would only have leapfrogged Axelsen if the top-seeded Dane were to lose at the last-16 stage Since the draws were made before Srikanth ascended to the World No 2 spot the seedings have him in the eighth spot in the fourth and final quarter of the draw headed by Korean Son who is seeded second Indeed Srikanth was scheduled to run into fellow countryman Prannoy in the second round after both Indians tackled qualifiers in their lung-openers Srikanth’s vacated spot will now be filled by a player who is first in line for promotion from the qualifying rounds that is the one ranked highest in the 33-40 bracket Prannoy in his first two matches is hence scheduled to meet two players from the qualifying rounds and should comfortably make it to the quarter-finals against Son But to return to the race for the World No 1 ranking it becomes clear that Axelsen will further extend his lead at the top of the table if he wins the China Open Thanks to Srikanth’s pull-out there is even a chance that Son with at least a semi-final placing in Fuzhou could displace the Indian from the No 2 spot This jockeying for the top spot pulls the focus back on the problem of scheduling of tournaments In the face of criticism about bunching of tournaments that increases the injury risk to players the BWF has clarified that it schedules two to three tournaments in successive weeks in a particular part of the world to allow players to move seamlessly from one tournament to another without needing to make back-and-forth trips between their homes and the tournament venues Thus the Denmark Open and French Open were scheduled in Europe one behind the other just as the Macau Open Grand Prix Gold China Open and Hong Kong Open have been scheduled in East Asia in successive weeks Most of the top stars have preferred rest and training to playing in the ongoing Macau Open (8-12 November) which only boasts second-rung players For the Indian players the scheduling of the Nationals — sandwiched between the European and East Asian circuits — could hardly have come at a worse time Since pressure was exerted on the top stars to participate in the Nationals the likes of Srikanth Prannoy Sai Praneeth Saina Nehwal and PV Sindhu had no alternative but to take the court in Nagpur Thus Srikanth was forced to play three matches en route to the final at a time when he would have preferred to rest his knee and concentrate on light training to maintain his fitness levels Four matches in a tournament that had become a prestige issue to show the country that the star internationals were worthy of their status proved to be the final straw that broke the camel’s back Indian fans will fervently hope that the forthcoming week when the world’s top badminton players will be vying to win one of the most prestigious tournaments on the world circuit will allow their blue-eyed boy to return to full fitness and get back on the courts at the Hong Kong
