British soldiers in Indian jail give hand-written note to ITV journalist

One of the men being held: Nick Dunn from Ashington.

Four British soldiers in an Indian jail have given a hand-written note to ITV News Correspondent Gregg Easteal. The document details several serious allegations about the men’s treatment at the hands of the Indian authorities.

It says that when they were first taken off their ship they were told they were going to hospital but were instead taken to a police station. It adds that they are struggling to eat properly.

The note was issued on behalf of Nick Dunn from Ashington, Billy Irving from Scotland, Ray Tindall from Chester and Paul Towers. John Armstrong from Wigton and Nicholas Simpson from Catterick are also in custody but did not take part in writing the note.
