CHENNAI: Cops are on the trail of a patient in connection with the murder of a 32-year-old dentist in Mogappair on Wednesday. Police said the person is a history sheeter and had apparently paid a visit to the clinic earlier. The dentist, Sangeetha, had been practising at the Sri Saro Clinic on Karnan Street in West Mogappair. She was found dead by a relative around 4 pm on Wednesday and her gold thali was missing.
Sources said the prescription slip book was spotted on Sangeetha’s table suggesting that it could be the patient whom she attended last. “We have detained one of her last patients, who is suspected in a murder case reported a few years ago. He had visited the dentist earlier too. But we have not established anything against him so far,” said a senior police officer.

FB Felons Booked
Two days after Facebook blocked ‘Chinna Ponnu Veriyargal’ and ‘Chinna Ponnu Karpazhippom’ (translates to extreme paedophile), city police registered a case against the perpetrators who reportedly created the pages.
Both pages displayed fully clothed girls and asked followers, about 3,000 of them, to post messages as to what they would do to them (sexually).
Based on a telephonic complaint, the Cyber Cell registered a case under section 67 of Information Technology act 2000 and section 14(i) and 17 of Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO) Act.
