Fast Track court confirms 5-year jail to former VC of Periyar University
Salem (TN): A fast track court here has
upheld a trial court order sentencing former Vice Chancellor
of Periyar University Sethupathy Ramalingam to five years of
rigorous imprisonment in a case relating to alleged dowry
harassment of his daughter-in-law.
The fourth Judicial Magistrate court here in June last had
pronounced the judgement holding Ramalingam guilty of charges
of harassment of his daughter-in-law Sangeetha.
Police had registered a case against Ramalingam and others
in 2003 based on a complaint from Sangheetha that her husband,
Rajavel Sethupathy, along with his parents, sister and
brother-in-law, had demanded jewellery, car and cash as dowry.
She had also alleged that Ramalingam misbehaved with her.
Ramalingam had moved the Fast Track Court-II challenging
the trial court verdict. Fast Track court Judge Chandrasekaran
yesterday confirmed the five years sentence.
