The victim’s father told reporters, “I called the rehab centre 14 days after my son was admitted there when they informed me that he jumped from the building. After I asked them why they didn’t inform me about it earlier, I was asked to visit the rehab centre. When we reached the rehab centre, we saw our son was trembling and crying. He said that if we didn’t take him out of the centre, the staff would kill him. The next day we filed a complaint at the police station. So far we have not received any help from the police. We demand action against the people involved in torturing my son.”
