Tamil Nadu govt to transfer probe into custodial deaths of father, son to CBI


Tamil Nadu government has decided to trasfer the probe into the death of a father-son duo, alleged victims of police torture in Tuticorin district, to the CBI.

Chief Minister K Palaniswami said the government's decision will be conveyed to Madras High Court, which seized the matter, and secured its approval before transferring the case to the CBI.

P Jayaraj and his son Fennix, arrested for 'violating' lockdown norms over business hours of their cellphone shop, died at a hospital in Kovilpatti on June 23, with their relatives alleging they were severely thrashed at the Sathankulam police station by police personnel earlier. The incident has triggered a national furore, leading to the suspension of four policemen, including two sub- inspectors. (AIR)
