CUDDALORE, NOV. 8. The death of N. Annadurai (46) of Komangalam today kicked up a controversy as his relatives claimed that it was a case of a lock-up death, while the police countered it, saying that he died of convulsions.
Annadurai was taken to the Vriddhachalam police station on Sunday night for an enquiry in connection with a case of theft of electric motor. The police said while in the lock-up, he developed fits at about 9 a.m., and was taken to hospital at 10.30 a.m. where he was declared dead at 11.30 a.m.
On knowing about his death, his relatives and villagers gathered at the hospital and alleged that this was a clear case of custodial death, because they saw bleeding from the victim's nose.
The Deputy Superintendent of Police, Palanivel, went there and pacified them, stating that the Revenue Divisional Officer would conduct an enquiry. The body is now lying in the hospital, and only after the probe, a post-mortem would be done.
