Three police officials booked for murder of mentally challenged viral ‘ATM’ robber

A murder case has been registered against three police officials for allegedly torturing to death Salahuddin Ayubi, a mentally challenged robbery suspect. Ayubi was arrested after his video of breaking open an ATM machine, making faces and sticking his tongue out at CCTV camera went viral. Ayubi’s father claims he was not informed of his son’s arrest by the police.

Ayubi’s father Muhammad Afzaal stated that his son was mentally disabled and had been out of touch with him for a while. According to the FIR, since the deceased was mentally ill, Afzaal had tattooed Ayubi’s name and address on his son’s arm for identification purposes.
