Chennai, July 21, 2022 (BPNS)
Madras High Court on Thursday directed the Tamil Nadu police and the father of the girl who committed suicide to produce before the court the Supreme Court order with respect to the plea by the father of the child to include a doctor of his choice during his re-postmortem.
Justice N. Satish Kumar of the Madras High court said that he had made it clear as to why a doctor of the choice of the petitioner could not be included for the re-postmortem and instead would be conducted by doctors handpicked by the court.
The prosecution informed the court that the re-postmortem was conducted on Tuesday itself with a team of doctors handpicked by the court. The prosecution also stated that the girl’s father and his counsel did not participate in the re-postmortem even though notice was served to them regarding the same.
The police also said that all procedures were conducted as directed by the court. The prosecution also mentioned that the Supreme Court has also rejected the petition of the girl’s father to include a doctor of his choice in the second post-mortem ordered by the Madras High Court.
Advocate R. Sankarasubbu appearing for the girl’s father prayed before the court that the notice was issued at the moment when the petitioner had approached the Supreme Court against the order passed by the Madras High Court on Monday refusing to include a doctor of his choice in the re-postmortem.
The counsel for the petitioner prayed before the court on Thursday that the Supreme Court had permitted the petitioner to vent his grievances before the High Court.
