Jahir-Hussain

As Jahir Hussain, who was arrested in connection with the pipe bomb case at Tirumangalam has caused trouble twice inside the court, police have decided to hold the hearing in the case through videoconferencing facility in future.

“Earlier the trial was held only through videoconferencing facility. As Jahir Hussian insisted that he wanted to appear in person in the court, we took him to Tirumangalam Judicial Magistrate (JM) court on July 9,” said a police official.

But, Jahir Hussian slit his neck and hand with a blade in front of the JM, demanding to shift him from Palayakottai jail to Madurai prison.  Following the JM order, the police took him to the Tirumangalam GH, and produced him again in the same court. His custody was extended till July 23.

It was not the first time Jahir Hussian was resorting to such violent act inside the court hall. When cops produced him on April 10 in the court, he slit his hand with a blade,  demanding to shift him to Madurai prison.  After the incident, senior officials held an inquiry and suspended two armed reserved personnel for the incident.

Subsequently, when the police produced him in the court for extension of remand on June 24, he again created a scene in the court by removing his shirt and showed scars on his body alleging torture inside the prison, police sources said.

After the recent incident, the JM directed the prison and police authorities to submit a report. When the SIT officials requested the court to allow Jahir Hussian to be produced with handcuff during the proceedings, the JM asked to conduct the proceedings through videoconferencing facility.
