'Our George Floyds': Outrage mounts over TN custody deaths

Jun 28, 2020 09:18 IST

Outrage over the death of a father-son duo in police custody in Tamil Nadu’s Tuticorin mounted on Saturday as
social media users, celebrities and political leaders demanded justice. The case has been compared to the killing of a black American, George Floyd, by a white cop in the US that led to international outrage. 59-yr-old P Jayaraj and his 31-yr-old son J Fennix Immanuel were tortured and brutally thrashed by the police, which resulted in rectal bleeding and eventual death, according to a letter to government officials written by Jayaraj’s wife. 4 cops have been suspended over the incident.
