A fortnight ago, the human rights organisation People’s Watch, which is assisting victims, filed another application in connection with the custodial torture under Section 7 (1) of the Act to the PIO of the collectorate. The PIO replied to the petition within 24 hours.
Rajeswari told TNIE she is planning to file an appeal under the RTI Act to get medical records of her sons. “The doctors treated my sons soon after they underwent the custodial torture. The GH’s medical records are mandatory for the legal proceedings,” she added.
