The 21st of February 1999, Kaya was found dead in the Alcatraz Police Cells at Line Barracks. All the doctors who examined Kaya’s body acknowledged that his death was due to shock or violence. Thursday, 4 days before his death, Kaya was arrested for having smoked a cigarette allegedly containing gandia publicly at a concert two days before. The cigarette was never found, so who knows. Since then, many others have died in police custody. Kaya is a famous Mauritian musician, inventor of the Seggae, and his death caused a three-day riot with widespread looting and a news-blackout.
