CHENNAI: With no progress in the complaint against a police inspector who wrongly implicated him in a double murder case and detained and tortured him in custody, a Dalit youth from Thoothukudi came to Chennai to approach the ADGP to expedite the inquiry and take action against the officer. This October would mark the second anniversary of the horrific episode that Yesudasan and others underwent.
In Chennai to meet the CB-CID head on Wednesday, Yesudasan demanded that inspector Selvam, the officer who allegedly foisted the case against him and others, be arrested immediately, as there was no legal impediment against it.
After being implicated in the double murder and his 90-day custody, Yesudasan lost his job as a teller at a leading finance chain. He was later released from custody, and the four, including him, were cleared by another inspector who arrested the real culprits behind the murders.
“The whole episode has taken a toll on my life and has wreaked financial havoc on my family as I am now jobless. It is inspector Selvam’s personal animosity that ruined our lives,” said Yesudasan.
