Madurai: Madras High Court Bench here has restrained police from filing a chargesheet against an aged couple and their unmarried daughter for alleged attempt to murder of their 38-year old lawyer son after they charged he foisted the case on them with an intention to extract money and immovable properties.

Admitting a petition filed by septuagenarian J Roby of Kottar in Kanyakumari, Justice KK Sasidharan ordered notice to the District Collector and Police returnable by April 12.

Roby alleged that his son R Anittar Alwin had lodged a false complaint with the intention of extracting money and occupying the immovable.

The petitioner said he was the father of two girl children and one son. His youngest daughter was unmarried and was living along with him. He claimed to have offered his self acquired property worth about Rs. 30 crore to his son, practising as an advocate, through a settlement deed.

Yet, his son wanted more and harassed the family, he said listing a series of incidents. So far five criminal cases had been registered against Alwin. But the police did not take any effective steps in those cases as the accused was a lawyer and a member of Nagercoil Bar Association, he added.

However, police entertained a complaint filed by Alwin and registered a case against the petitioner, his wife and daughter under various IPC sections allgedly due to a nexus between his son and the local DSP N. Baskaran, he charged.

The petitioner sought transfer of the investigation in the case to the Crime Branch-Criminal Investigation Department with a direction to complete the probe and file a report in a stipulated time.
