Sudanese Military Intelligence members beat and arrested a man in Kass locality, South Darfur, on Tuesday, for unknown reasons.

Ibrahim Zakariya Abdelkarim, 35 years old, was arrested in his house in Gummeiza village, 15 km north of Kass in the evening. A member of Ibrahim’s family told Radio Dabanga that a group of MI personnel came to the house in two Land Cruisers on Tuesday.

“The group stormed Ibrahim’s house and beat him, before throwing him in the back of one of their vehicles. They then left for the military garrison.”

The family member expressed his deep concerns for the health of Ibrahim, fearing that he might be subjected to unfair treatment or torture in the detention of the MI. He called for his immediate release and clarity about the reasons of the arrest.
