Ranchi, July 11: Tabrez Ansari, who was brutally thrashed on suspicion of having stolen a bike, died due to brain haemorrhage, according to the post-mortem report.

According to police sources, the post-mortem report submitted by the doctors say that Ansari had sustained bone fracture in his head which caused brain haemorrhage leading to his death.

Ansari was mercilessly beaten by a group of people last month and was allegedly forced to shout "Jai Sri Ram", after being suspected of involvement in a bike theft.

His two associates managed to escape from the spot and have not been traced so far by the police.

Ansari died in judicial custody a week after the thrashing incident. Eleven people have been arrested in connection with his killing.

The post-mortem report was submitted two days ago to the Seraikela police.

"During investigation it has been found that the officer-in-charge of two police stations did not react on time to save Tabrez Ansari. The local village head informed police about the incident at 2 a.m. but they reached the spot at 6 p.m.", a police source told .

"The doctors attending Tabrez did not treat him well. The X-ray report indicated fracture in his head but he was not treated for brain haemorrhage. He was forwarded to jail", he said.

The Jharkhand High Court has sought a report from the state government regarding Ansari's killing.

The court has also sought a report on violent protests by members of the Muslim community on July 5 to protest the mob lynching of Ansari.

While the High Court has expressed unhappiness over the July 5 protests, no one has been arrested so far in this connection, despite police possessing CCTV footage.

Bengaluru: The Congress on Saturday released a list of six candidates for the December 5 assembly bypolls in Karnataka.

The party has fielded Gajanan Balachandra Mangasuli from Athani, Bharamgouda Alagouda Kage from Kagwad and Lakhan Jarkiholi from Gokak.

It has also given nomination to Venkatrao Ghorpade from Vijayanagara, Rizwan Arshad from Shivajinagar and K B Chandrashekar from Krishnarajpet.

A party statement said Congress president Sonia Gandhi has approved the names of the candidates.

The Congress also named Praveen Peter as its candidate for the biennial election to the legislative council of Karnataka.

Bypolls will be held in 15 constituencies as the sitting Congress-JDS MLAs were disqualified by then Assembly Speaker K R Ramesh Kumar ahead of a trust vote, which led to the fall of the HD Kumaraswamy government and the return of the B S Yediyurappa-led BJP to power in July.

In total 17 MLAs were disqualified but bypolls will be held in 15 of those seats as by-elections to Maski and RR Nagar constituencies are withheld with separate cases regarding them pending before the high court.

Sixteen of the 17 disqualified Congress-JD(S) legislators have joined the BJP and 13 of them have been given nomination by the saffron party from their respective seats.

The BJP will need to win at least six of these 15 seats to remain in power. Of the 15 constituencies, 12 were represented by Congress and three by JD(S).

The last date for filing of nominations for the bypolls is November 18.
