General Information:

Nicholls - 1920 - Captain Longrey Hawkins, who lost 400 rupees in a robbery, was charged on three counts of causing 'grievous hurt'. He had tortured three African suspects by putting their fingers in a vice and tightening it until they confessed. One of the men died. Hawkins was sentenced to 2 years' imprisonment and fined 7,000 shillings. A subscription was quietly opened in several districts to pay his fine, and he served his sentence.
