Dr S Rajendran, presently working As Chief Medical Officer, Government Hospital in Jayankondam in Ariyalur district, is directed by the TN State Human Rights Commission to pay a compensation of Rs5,000, for assisting the local police to build up a false case against a villager.
SHRC Acting chairperson Jayanthi, IAS (retired), who gave the direction on Thursday, also directed Kosalraman, presently working as SI, Intelligence section, Tiruchy, to pay Rs25,000 to Abhimannan of Chettithirukonam village in Ariyalur district, for violating his human rights. The State government should pay the entire amount of Rs30,000 to Abhimannan within four weeks and recover the same from the SI and the doctor, the commission said.
According to Abhimannan, one Malar of the village filed a civil suit against him over a property and the same was pending before the Civil Court in Ariyalur. While so, he was picked up by cops on September 28, 2004 and taken to Vikramangalam police station, where he was directed to pay Rs5,000 to settle the dues of the station personnel due to a nearby hotel to favourably settle the civil case. He was abused with filthy language and severely attacked, when he refused to oblige. A false case was registered against him, produced before the local magistrate belatedly and remanded in custody. Abhimannan moved the SHRC with the present complaint.
Passing orders on it, the SHRC observed that the evidence available in the case, coupled with the documents, would show that the complainant was picked up by Kosalraman on September 28, 2004 from his house and was taken to the Vikramangalam Police Station, where he was illegally detained and was shown as arrested only at 2 pm on that day and that he was brutally assaulted by the SI. The doctor has extended all his illegal assistance by filing a false medical certificate.
