During the vehicle inspection at Ramanathapuram, when an inspector attacked with Lathi, a woman’s skull was hurt terribly. This incident is becoming viral as the youngsters around the area took a video of it and shared it on social media. Vellur(45), a coolie worker is from Duruthiyanthal village near Ramanathapuram. His wife is Marikannu (40). The day before yesterday, they were returning to their village after some purchase at Ramanathapuram on their two-wheeler. While they were reaching Nainarkoil ring road, the police were engaged in a vehicle raid led by Bazar Sub Inspector Krishnamurthy.
As Vellur, was not wearing a helmet, the police asked to stop the vehicle. When he was trying to stop the two-wheeler, a policeman who was nearby, attacked with Lathi. Due to this, Marikanu got a severe injury on her head. The injury was so severe that she fainted instantly. The police immediately sent Vellur with his wife in auto and asked the auto driver to take them to hospital for treatment. But the auto driver took them directly to the SP’s office instead of a hospital. The police there scolded the driver for not taking the lady for the treatment. Thus they sent Marikannu and Vellur in another auto.
Only after this, the other officials at SP’s office came to know that Marikannu was injured by a policeman during the vehicle inspection. Meanwhile, the doctors treated her wound with stitches. “We have three daughters. If something had happened to me when the police attacked, who would take care of my children”, cries Marikannu who was under the treatment. When the incident was questioned to SP Omprakash, he said that an order has been made for DSP to investigate the case. He further said that the righteous actions would be taken if the mistake was under the name of police.
