Sathankulam: CB-CID hands over crucial documents to CBI

Chennai: The CB-CID has handed over crucial documents to the CBI, which recently took over the probe in the Sathankulam police station custodial deaths of father-son duo P Jeyaraj, 58, and J Beniks, 31.

According to sources, CB-CID officials met their CBI counterparts and handed over documents related to the case.

A seven-member CBI team led by Additional Superintendent VK Shukla from Delhi reached Thoothukudi late last week and received the papers from the CB-CID that probed the case as an interim measure on the directions of the Madurai bench of the Madras High Court on 30 June.

Meanwhile, singer Suchitra, who was among the first ones to raise voice against the custodial deaths of a father-son duo in Sathankulam, has taken down the viral video, which garnered close to a million views on social media, after the CB-CID police allegedly warned her of legal actions.

In her video, Suchitra had narrated in vivid detail of how Sathankulam police officials tortured the father-son duo inside the station.

Soon after the video went viral, the issue was debated widely in national television channels.
