"These violations include police officers indulging in violence with the rioters; torturing in custody; using excessive force on protesters; dismantling sites of peaceful protests and; being mute bystanders as rioters wreaked havoc," Amnesty said.
The group said it spoke to 50 riots survivors, eyewitnesses, lawyers, doctors, human rights activists and retired police officers. It also analysed several user-generated videos.
One such video showed officers "kicking and hitting a group of five wounded men... poking them with rifles and asking them to sing the Indian National Anthem," Amnesty said.
Six months on, there has been no investigation into the role of the police in the unrest, it added.
"This ongoing state-sponsored impunity sends the message that the law enforcement officials can commit grave human rights violations and evade accountability," said Amnesty executive director Avinash Kumar.
