A video on the alleged custodial death of a father-son duo(Jeyaraj-Bnnicks) by Radio Jockey Suchitra, which went viral on all social media handles is taken down after the CB-CID police warned her of legal actions.
In her video, Suchitra had narrated in vivid detail of how Sathankulam police officials tortured Jeyaraj (62) and Bennicks (32) inside the station. Soon after the video went viral, the issue was debated widely in national television channels.
The Tamil Nadu branch of CB-CID had asked the singer to take down her video, claiming that the incidents she narrated were “falsely exaggerated” and that they were “not backed up by any proof”. On Friday, the Thoothukudi Police put out a notice of CB-CID on their Twitter handle with a note that the public should not believe or share such video, claiming that “the investigation into the case does not find any substance in the allegation” and that the “video is promoting hatred against the police”.
“Deleting the video is not important. This is what worries me - they told me the post mortem report says none of what I’ve said in the video, happened. A true post mortem is CRUCIAL. Media, pls don`t rest until u get a copy. RT & tag,” RJ Suchitra tweeted after removing the video.
