Mugilan went missing hours after a press meet in which he accused two senior police officers of playing an important role in the Thoothukudi open firing that took place on May 22.

Over two weeks since the anti-Sterlite activist Mugilan went missing, the Madras High Court has ordered the Crime Branch’s Criminal Investigation Department (CB-CID) police to file a status report.

According to reports, the court passed the order on a habeas corpus petition moved by human rights activist Henri Tiphagne, which sought directions from the court to order the state police to trace Mugilan and produce him in the court. Henri’s petition states that Mugilan went missing after he exposed the alleged involvement of two senior police officials in the firing that took place in Thoothukudi on May 22 in which 13 people were killed.
