'Thousands die' in India custody

Nearly 7,500 people have died in official custody in India over the past five years, according to a report by a human rights group.

The report by Delhi-based Asian Centre for Human Rights says many of these people were tortured in custody. It says the Indian government is in a state of denial about torture.

Even when action is taken against officials who are accused of wrongdoing, the report argues, the system tries to cover up any crimes.
