Osaka police turned over to prosecutors Friday cases against nine of their own, including former superintendents, in connection with the falsification of investigation records for a 41-year-old man taken into custody last year.

The man in custody had allegedly become violent with police and was placed in a solitary cell, a move that required the authorization of a superior who was not present at the time. The authorization was fabricated.
