Four police personnel who were involved in the custodial death of M Shankar in Ayanavaram last week have been transferred to various police stations.
According to eye-witnesses, they both assaulted the two. Thomas Francis stood sentry by door of the station so that nobody entered and witnessed the incident.

He was among the 10 persons arrested in connection with the case by the CB-CID when it was investigating the case.
He wants to take up the matter before the High Court, hence he sought the copy of the chargesheet.
The petitioner sought a direction to transfer the investigation to CB-CID.
