Suspicion has risen among the relatives of a young married man after him dying within a few hours of being arrested by Nelliyady Police.
The wife of Jeyaratnam Jeyaruban (aged 40)of Thakkusampathy,Thunnalai West, has made a complaint with the Nelliyady Police after having a fight with her husband. However the man had absconded the police and following him returning home on Thursday, the wife had informed the Nelliady police of his return.
Instead of going in the police vehicle, the Nelliyady police had gone in a new vehicle and arrested Jeyaruban and took him to the Police Station. Sometime after going to Police station, Jeyaruban had vomited and admitted to Point Pedro Base Hospital. He had died after a few minutes of being admitted to the Police.
The Acting judge, P.Balasubramanium, after making inquiries ordered the Nelliyadi police to conduct a Post Mortem at Jaffna teaching Hospital and submit a report.
