THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Museum police on Wednesday filed a case against two Indian Forest Service(IFS) officers who allegedly used third-degree torture on the accused persons in the elephant poaching case. 

The police have charged non-bailable offences  against Thiruvananthapuram DFO T Uma and her husband R Kamalahar, who is serving as the deputy conservator at Forest Department Headquarters, and 13 others.

Police officials said that the preliminary investigation revealed the crime. “Appropriate action will be taken against them after the arrest,” they said.

According to city police commissioner H Venkatesh, the case was re-registered as an FIR had already been registered at Muvattupuzha police station. “The investigation is under way and a clear picture of the case will come out in the coming days,” he said.

The case was reconsidered by the city police after the medical report of Aji Bright, one of the accused in the case, was out. According to the reports, three ribs of Bright’s were broken.

Uma on Wednesday refuted the charges and said she was not aware of any police case filed earlier.
