CHENNAI: The woman, allegedly tortured and raped in custody at a police station in Udumalpet, requires immediate medical attention at a super speciality hospital, Justice V Ramasubramanian observed and accordingly directed the authorities concerned to admit her in the multi-speciality hospital at Omandurar Government Estate in the City, on Friday.

Victim.jpgAs directed by the Court on September 3, the victim was produced before the Judge later in the afternoon. After listening to the arguments advanced by the counsel for both the sides at his chambers, the Judge noted in his further interim order that the middle-aged woman, who narrated her tale of woes, was not even able to walk. The judge, however, refrained from recording the entire contents, as they might have a reflection in the ultimate enquiry or trial.

The judge also stated that required number of women cops, deputed by the Armed Reserve Wing of the Chennai Police, should be the escort for the victim. No person from the police department, except escort police, should  be permitted to meet the victim until further orders of this Court. The Judge posted the matter for further hearing on September 10, when the government would produce a certificate of the treatment given to the woman.

The victim’s daughter had filed a petition in the Court submitting that her mother, living alone and working in an hotel, was picked by the cops in connection with the murder of her house owner and was tortured and raped. The petition charged the police with inserting a lathi in the victim’s genitals.
