Sathankulam case: Head Constable declared as ‘wanted’ by CB-CID

Chennai: A Head Constable has been declared as wanted accused by the CB-CID in the Sathankulam double death case.

Head Constable Muthuraj, who has gone into hiding ever since the CB-CID took over the case, is being searched by special teams, it is learnt.

The CBCID has arrested Inspector Sridhar, Sub-Inspector Raghu Ganesh, and four others on murder charges in connection with the deaths of Jayaraj and Bennix. The father-son duo was brutally tortured in custody and died as a result.

The FIRs filed in the case were altered to murder charges against Raghu Ganesh and Balakrishnan, along with two constables and two members of the friends of police.  One constable and two members of the Friends of Police are yet to be arrested.

Following an order from the Madurai bench of the Madras High Court, the CBCID took charge of the investigation in the case. It subsequently formed 12 teams for a detailed investigation in the case involving the policemen in the Sathankulam police station.
