Madras High Court has issued notices to Home Secretary (prison) and superintendent of central prison in Vellore after a Sri Lankan refugee’s wife sought medical treatment for her husband whose health has deteriorated after he undertook a fast for the last 10 days in Chengalpattu special camp. Justice V Dhanapalan and Justice G Chockalingam issued notices returnable in two weeks after Mangayarkarasi, wife of Sri Lankan Tamil R Chenthuran prayed before the court to issue a writ of habeas corpus or direction to the respondents to provide proper medical treatment to the detenu. Chenthuran is on fast from March 7 protesting against his detention in Chengalpattu Camp. The detenu was arrested by Pammal police and remanded to judicial custody on February 27. He was lodged in Central Prison in Puzhal and was released on March 7 after he was granted bail. But soon after his release, he was taken to Chengalpattu Special Camp.
