VILLUPURAM: A tame farewell to a promising career was all the hapless father of Monisha could give her after receiving her body from the Kilpauk Medical College Hospital, where it was taken on Thursday for a second post-mortem.

The last rites were a low-key affair, as a huge posse of police personnel stopped a group of nearly 20 students and their parents at Maduravoyal in Chennai from going to Ernavur, where the ceremony was held. Expressing disappointment over the court not giving orders for a CBI probe into the deaths, the teary-eyed man said that the local police were hand-in-glove with the accused, and an impartial probe by an external agency alone could deliver justice to the victims and their families. The Madras High Court had intervened and ordered a second post-mortem after Tamilarasan had raised suspicions of foul play.

The day began with the Mundiambakkam Government Medical College and Hospital officials around 8 am asking Tamilarasan to inform the collector about the transfer of body to Chennai. However, neither the collector, nor the superintendent of police responded to his calls.

Around 10 am, when Tamilarasan asked for his daughter’s body, the revenue and police officials refused, citing a High Court order, and despatched it to Chennai, with her relatives following behind.
