Good Judgment on Torture

Asantha Aravinda filled the Fundamental Rights case before the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court gave the judgment saying his rights enshrined in the 1978 constitution specially article 11 and 12.1 were violated. The respondents are from Pitabaddara police including the OIC Karunasena (now he was died.) and other police officers from the same police station. 

On 28 February 2008 he was arrested by the police and threw acid to his face regarding motor traffic offences. He was being detained at the police station without giving him proper medical facilities and not admit to a hospital. After that he was remanded. 

The Supreme Court decided his fundamental rights were violated and ordered to pay him compensation of Rs.200,000/= It further ordered it was the responsibility of the Inspector General Of Police to pay the compensation to him.
