Habib â€˜Paapuâ€™ Ullah died on Thursday 3rd July 2008 during a stop and search by Police Officers on a vehicle in a car park in High Wycombe at approximately 7.15pm. He was 39 years old and leaves behind a young family.
A group of friends have set up a campaign to raise awareness of his death in custody. On the Facebook page, they say:
We are concerned how a man can die in the process of being arrested and how he came to have breathing difficulties. There is an Independent Police Complaints Commission investigation taking place into his death.
The release of the IPCC investigation is here. There was a peaceful protest about this last week. According to their campaign blog, five police officers are now under investiation by the IPCC. If you can, spread the word. I’ll bring updates when they come in.
