CHENNAI: Amidst doubts raised over the death of Ramkumar, the suspect in the Swathi murder case, two photos showing a broken switch board believed to be inside the Puzhal Central prison were circulated on social media on Tuesday evening.

While one of main question raised over the death was that the switch boards in prison will be located on higher levels to prevent the inmates from accessing them. But the photo showed the switch board was at a level very much accessible for anyone.

On Monday, a judicial magistrate also visited the spot and conducted enquiries. The autopsy of Ramkumar's body, that may give the key evidence on the reason for the death, is yet to take place.
