Acquittal of policemen confirmed

Staff Reporter

MADURAI: The Madras High Court Bench here on Wednesday confirmed the acquittal of a police inspector, sub-inspector, head constable and two constables accused of stripping a woman and her son besides beating them up brutally at the Nazareth police station in Tuticorin district on March 5, 1991 during an interrogation in connection with a theft case.

Dismissing a criminal appeal, filed by the woman in the Principal Seat of the High Court in Chennai in 2001 and transferred here in 2004, Justice S. Palanivelu said that an Additional Sessions Judge in Tuticorin had rightly reversed a judgment passed by the Sathankulam Magistrate convicting all the five police personnel. He held that there were many inconsistencies in the complaint.

“On reappraisal of the statements and evidence, it is seen that the allegations in the complaint have not been established. The charges have not been proved beyond reasonable doubts,” the judge said.
