RAMANATHAPURAM: Judicial Magistrate Court II Judge Velusamy on Friday remanded to judicial custody till July 2 the sub-inspector Kalidas, who was booked under murder charges for custodial death.

The SP also transferred to Armed Reserve Police a few other police personnel who were on duty in the station. The State government also gave solatium of `5 lakh to victim’s family.
