CHENNAI: The Madras High Court has ordered the transfer of a case relating to the death of a woman, allegedly in police custody, to the CB CID for investigation. Passing orders on a petition by the woman's husband, a Division Bench, comprising Justices C. Nagappan and P.R. Shivakumar, said interim status report should be filed within four weeks. In his petition, K.M. Gopal of Urapakkam near here stated that his wife Saraswathi, who was running a chit fund, ran away on March 25 as she could not repay money. If his wife had committed any offence it was the duty of the police to register a case and send her to judicial custody. But, the police kept her in illegal custody.
The court said it had a reasonable suspicion regarding the cause of death of Saraswathi.
