Public prosecution decided Monday to detain three police officers for four days pending investigation into claims that they tortured a prisoner to death.

The deceased، 26، was in prison over suspicions he killed his grandmother.

Police first announced that the suspect fell ill while in custody and was taken to hospital، where he died.

However، the medical examiner's report said there were signs of torture on the deceased's body.

The Egyptian constitution stipulates that "torture in all its forms is a crime without a statute of limitations."
