In the case of the death of a schoolgirl in Kallakurichi, Tamil Nadu, the court heard the petition filed by the mother of the student demanding that the arrested school administrators should not be granted bail. What happened today in this case?

Special Court Judge Shanti is investigating the CBCID case related to the death of the female student. When the case was heard on Monday, Ramachandran, advocate for the school management, appeared.

The judge then said, “Since the CBCID police did not mention the crime case number, the Chinna Salem police registered the death of the student as a suspicious death under Section 174 of the Criminal Procedure Code. As the CBCID investigation in this matter was not complete, the report of the double post-mortem of the student’s body was submitted according to the report of the medical committee of Jipmar Medical College and Hospital. The bail petition will be heard after it is filed,” he said.

Further, the judge adjourned the hearing on the petition to August 10.

Meanwhile, the mother of the student has filed a counter-petition insisting that bail should not be granted to the five accused until the truth of the case is revealed.

In this regard, Kasi Viswanathan, the lawyer for the student’s parents, said, “The school administration has filed a bail petition against the student’s mysterious death. Her mother Ms. , realizing the seriousness of this case, its hearing has been postponed. The Jipmar Hospital committee has one month to examine the first and second autopsy report of the student. The next hearing of this case will be held on the 10th,” said the judge.

Continuing, he said, “We have alleged that the student was raped and murdered. The truth has not come out yet as there is a serious crime in this case. We are saying that they should not be allowed out until that truth is brought out.”

When asked by the reporters whether the investigation of the case is being conducted properly, “The student’s parents have been investigated. Other things can be said only after the CBCID report is filed. No objections should be made before that. We expect and hope that the investigators will do their job well,” the student’s mother and her lawyer said.

The case, which was earlier investigated by the Kallakurichi District Police Department, was transferred to the State Crime Branch Criminal Investigation Department (CBCID). Meanwhile, the school principal Ravikumar, secretary Shanti, school principal Sivasankaran, chemistry teacher Haripriya and maths teacher Keerthika were arrested by the police and sent to Salem Central Jail for 15 days in connection with the mysterious death of the student.

CBCID police are investigating the case. In this situation, a petition was filed by the CBCID in the Villupuram court to remand the 5 arrested persons for three days and interrogate them. When Judge Pushparani heard this petition on July 27, the police produced the five people who were detained in the Salem Central Jail in the Villupuram court.

Subsequently, the judge allowed the five people to be remanded in custody. Meanwhile, the judge did not take up the bail plea filed by the school administration demanding that the arrested be released on bail.

In this situation, when this petition came up for hearing in the Villupuram Women’s Court on July 29, the bail petition was filed with a copy of the First Information Report registered at the Chinna Salem Police Station, so it could not be accepted and now that the case has gone to the CBCID, the CBCID should file a bail petition based on the First Information Report. Justice Shanti instructed the school management side.
