Chennai techie death: Police arrests AIADMK functionary Jayagopal who was on the run

Weeks after the death of 23-year old techie Subhashree in Chennai, as an illegal banner fell on her scooter and a truck ran over her, the Chennai Police has arrested AIADMK functionary Jayagopal, who was absconding, from Krishnagiri district. The banner that fell on Subhashree was illegally erected along the stretch of Pallikaranai Radial road, for a wedding in Jayagopal’s house. Chennai Police had filed two cases against Jayagopal — one for illegally putting up the banners, and another one for causing grievous hurt by dangerous weapons or means under Section 326 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
