Relatives of an inmate who died in an Uzbek prison say they believe he was beaten to death, RFE/RL's Uzbek Service reports.

The body of Abdulfattoh Raimokhunov, 48, was given to his relatives in the Andijon region on January 11. According to his death certificate, Raimokhunov died of a heart attack on January 8 in the Jasliq (Youth) prison in southwestern Uzbekistan.

His relatives told RFE/RL on January 13 that officials forced them to bury him quickly after receiving the body and without allowing an independent autopsy to be conducted.

Raimokhunov's older brother, Abdurashid Raimokhunov, told RFE/RL that the last time he phoned his brother some three weeks ago he did not have any health complaints. He was also in good health when his wife visited him last summer.

But Abdurashid Raimokhunov told RFE/RL that he had noticed a fresh bruise on his brother's forehead.
