The Madurai Bench of Madras High Court on Saturday ordered a CB-CID probe into the death of
Silambarasan, a history sheeter from Thanjavur district. His body was found floating in a tank in
Kumbakonam on April 10.
Hearing the plea filed by K. Valli, the mother of the deceased, Justice G. Ilangovan ordered a CBCID
probe into the incident taking into account the fact that the mother blamed the police for the
death of her son. It was said that he jumped into the tank to evade arrest.
The Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court directed the Commissioner of Police, Madurai, to secure and produce before the court four men alleged to be behind the withdrawal of a petition pertaining to the Avaniapuram custodial death case.
A Division Bench of Justices T.S. Sivagnanam and S. Ananthi directed the Commissioner of Police to secure Athi Narayanan, Kathir, Loganathan and Ramesh and produce them before the court. The High Court initiated suo motu proceedings after the petition was withdrawn.
