VELLORE: The CB-CID, which is probing the case of the death of S Shameel Ahmed, who died allegedly from injuries sustained during his illegal detention, served a copy of the summons for C Martin Premraj, former Pallikonda inspector, to his mother. Premraj has been named as the prime accused in the case.
A team of police officials, who are attached to CB-CID, handed over the summons order to Premraj’s mother at their native place in Thirukovilur in Villupuram district on Tuesday, asking him to appear for inquiry on Thursday.
“Since Premraj was not available, the team served the summons copy to his mother. If he does not respond to the second summons and does not appear for the inquiry, we will launch a search for him,” said Superintendent of Police of CB-CID G Nagajothi.
The police team stuck the summons copy, which asked him to appear for inquiry on July 6, at the inspector’s rented house in Katpadi since the house was found locked.
The police inspector has also not received his suspension orders in person.
The order stated that the inspector should not leave the headquarters (Vellore) during the period of suspension without obtaining prior permission of the SP of Vellore.
The inspector, who went on a medical leave from June 28, continues to be untraceable.
