The mysterious appearance of Ilavarasan’s purported suicide note continued to create ripples with his family members rapping the railway police for doing a very shoddy job.
According to police sources, Manickam, of Natham Colony, admitted to the investigation officer that he had taken the four-page note shortly before the railway police reached the spot. The railway police reportedly reached there around 1.40 pm. Ilavarasan’s father Elangovan was informed around 2 pm, while the media reached the place at 2.15 pm and relatives made it to the site around 3 pm. If crimes occur, the police have to cordon off the scene but in this case they failed to do it.
“How did the police fail to recover the note? We suspect that this suicide note is not real,” said one of the relatives of Ilavarasan.
Rajinikanth, a lawyer for Elangovan’s family said according to the Bangalore DRM Anil Kumar Agarwal, the drivers of Coimbatore-Mumbai Kurla express had not reported any run-over incident.
“We suspect Ilavarasan may not have committed suicide. If a train hits a person he will be smashed, but here he got only head injuries, ” the lawyer said.
