Tamil Nadu custodial deaths: 9 cops in CBI's chargesheet for murder

Sep 26, 2020 23:00 IST

The CBI has named nine Tamil Nadu policemen in their chargesheet for murder, conspiracy and other offences in the custodial death case of a father-son duo in June this year. The policemen have also been accused of destruction of evidence in the chargesheet filed before the Chief Judicial Magistrate in Madurai on Friday in the alleged torture and murder of shopkeepers J Benniks and his father RP Jeyaraj, who ran a mobile phone shop in Thoothukudi district. The CBI has alleged that after the torture of the two victims in the police station which led to their death, the police filed "fake" charges against them of violating the coronavirus lockdown by keeping their shops open beyond the permitted time.
