Chennai: A Habeas Corpus petition has been filed in the Madras High Court seeking a direction to police to produce a 25-year-old man detained as a remand prisoner in Coimbatore central prison.

When the HCP came up, a Division Bench of Justices C Nagappan and T Sudanthiram directed police to file a counter affidavit by December 15.

The petitioner, S Murugeswari of Sangunipalayam in Tirupur submitted that her sons Purushothaman and Subash Chandra Bose, who were working in a garment manufacturing factory in Tirupur, had left for work on November 12 last and had not returned home.

The next morning, she said,the Inspector of Malayampalayam police station had informed her that her sons had fallen down from a motorcycle and had been admitted to the government hospital at Erode for treatment.

Later, the police told her that Bose was dead.

At the hospital, she claimed that she found Purushothaman's hands and legs in chains.There were also bleeding injuries all over his body, she said, adding, this had led her to have serious doubts about the cause of the death of her other son.

She said that on November 19 Purushothaman was produced before the Perundurai Judicial Magistrate and remanded in a case registered by the police.

The police, she submitted, had not informed her about her son's arrest and detention.

The petition also sought a direction to the authorities concerned to provide him proper medical treatment.
