§ 66. Major-General Sir ALFRED KNOX
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether, with regard to the case of Sub-inspector-of-police Syed Arsad Ali, who was murdered a few days ago at Faridpur by a released detenu, he will state how long this man had been under detention, when he was released, and for what reason?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (Mr. Butler)
I have not yet heard the details of this case, but am expecting a further report which will no doubt supply the information requested.
§ Sir A. KNOX
Would it not be better to detain these people under lock and key rather than to let them loose and thus endanger the lives of civil servants?
§ Mr. BUTLER
I think it will be advisable to await the exact details of this case, and I will then communicate with my hon. and gallant Friend.
