"Twin Murder": Anger In Tamil Nadu After Man, Son Die In Police Custody

Family members of the store owners - Jayaraj and his son Beniks -- have refused to accept their bodies after the post-mortem last night.


The death in police custody of a father and son arrested last Friday for keeping their mobile phone shop in Tuticorin open beyond permitted hours has led to anger across Tamil Nadu. 

Henri Tiphagne of the group says: "Our enquiry sadly reveals the Judicial Magistrate had not personally met the men before they were remanded. They were hidden in the van. This is contrary to law. Had he met them, they could have narrated what happened and showed the injuries as a result of torture".
