However, the accused were released under the Probation of Offenders' Act.
According to police sources, Nallakaman of Vadipatti lodged a complaint that in 1982, Mr. Kumar, when he was sub-inspector, assaulted him in connection with an enquiry.
A few other personnel "harassed" his family members, conducting repeated search operations in his house.
Mr. Kumar filed a complaint that Mr. Nallakaman and his associates barged into the Vadipatti police station and assaulted some policemen on duty. An RDO enquiry was ordered into the incident and a case registered against the SP.
The first fast track court judge, S. Udayan, who heard the case, held Mr. Kumar, Chelliah, Subbiah and Subramaniam guilty on two counts under Section 307 and 320 of the IPC.
However, considering the present position of the official and others, the judge warned them and set them free under Section 3 of the Act.
Mr. Nallakaman (an ex-serviceman) and others, convicted under Section 323 IPC, were also released under the same provisions subject to the condition that they prove their good conduct for six months.
Heavy police security was clamped on the court premises.
