MADURAI: The Madurai Bench of Madras High Court issued notice to four police officials, including Madurai Deputy Commissioner of Police (Law and Order) R Shiva Prasad, in a petition filed by a woman alleging that the officials harassed and threatened her husband and her family to withdraw a custodial torture complaint lodged by her husband against Triplicane police officials.
The petitioner R Yasmin alleged that the Triplicane police had foisted a false case on her husband Raja Hussain and tortured him in custody in March this year and that a complaint in this regard is pending before the State Human Rights Commission (SHRC).
