The Kolkata Police officers on Saturday met the family of Mir Aminul Islam, a young man who set himself ablaze last month alleging harassment by the police and died of injuries on January one.

Joint Commissioner R. Tripurari, DCP (enforcement branch) Debabrata Das and officer-in-charge of Karaya police station spoke to the family of Islam for about one-and-a-half hours, but refused to divulge details to reporters about the talks.

Islam had immolated himself before the police station on December 3 last year in protest against alleged police inaction on the rape of a minor girl and his harassment after he took the victim for filing a complaint against the alleged rapist Shahajada Bux.
