Campaigners have accused the police of double standards as they prepare to hold a vigil to mark the sixth anniversary of the death of Habib ‘Paps’ Ullah. Justice4Paps will hold a peaceful protest outside Wycombe police station on June 19 as it continues its quest for answers over his death.
The 39-year-old suffered a cardiac arrest during a stop-and-search in Sharrow Vale on July 3, 2008. He was being restrained by officers who were trying to force a drugs package out of his throat.
Mr Ullah’s sister, Nasit Mahmood, said the family is still seeking closure six years on from his death – yet pointed to a case last week in which a man was charged and due before the courts within two weeks of allegedly assaulting two officers.
