CHENNAI : The KV Kuppam police in Vellore district were directed by the Madras High Court to complete investigation into the case of a 16-year-old boy who went missing, allegedly due to the carelessness of the police.

A division bench comprising Justices C Nagappan and M Sathyanarayanan gave the direction while allowing a habeas corpus writ petition from the boy’s mother S Meenakshi of Chromepet, recently.

In her petition, Meenakshi alleged that her son, S Balaji, disappeared due to negligence of the KV Kuppam police personnel. A written complaint was lodged on October 6 last year and a case was registered. A detailed representation was sent to the SP, Vellore district. She prayed the court to direct the police to produce the boy before the court and restore possession to her.

The bench directed the police to complete investigation as expeditiously as possible.
