A 24-year-old man, identified as M Sridhar, died shortly after being questioned by the police in Chennai. Sridhar, who had a history of criminal cases, was picked up by the MGR Nagar police in connection with a burglary case. This incident raises concerns about the circumstances surrounding his death.
Police Custody and Subsequent Death
According to reports, Sridhar was released by the police after questioning but later complained of discomfort and chest pain. His wife rushed him to the ESI Hospital, where he was given medication and sent home. However, he continued to experience chest pain, prompting his family members to take him back to the hospital. Tragically, Sridhar was declared dead on arrival.
While the police claim that Sridhar died due to choking on food, other sources suggest that he had health issues andmentioned consuming only liquor for two days. Reportedly, doctors advised him to take medicine for gas-related discomfort, but he complained of uneasiness again and passed away on the way to the hospital. The exact cause of death remains uncertain.
This case is not an isolated incident. Another individual, Vignesh, who was arrested along with his associate for alleged possession of ganja, also died shortly after being questioned by the police. The autopsy report revealed that Vignesh had suffered a fracture and multiple bruises prior to his death, contradicting the police’s explanation.
The death of M Sridhar raises questions about the treatment of individuals in police custody and highlights the need for a thorough investigation. It is crucial to determine the exact circumstances surrounding his death and ensure transparency in the process. These incidents underscore the importance of maintaining the safety and well-being of individuals who come into contact with the law enforcement system.
