Swathi murder case: Crucial Identification parade today
Swathi murder accused P Ramkumar will be paraded today for identification. The parade is scheduled to begin at 10.30 am at the Puzhal Central Jail in Chennai.
Eyewitnesses would be gathered at the jail today to identify the accused. The entire parade would be officiated by a judicial magistrate.
On 24 June, Infosys employee was hacked to death in broad daylight at the Nungambakkam Railway station. The incident had shocked Chennai and raised several questions about women’s safety.
The Madras High Court had earlier objected to the circulation of photos of Ramkumar which is likely to prove tricky during the identification parade. During the identification parade, which is a crucial aspect of investigation, similar looking people as that of the accused are produced and eye witnesses are supposed to identify the culprit.
Ramkumar had tried to commit suicide when he was rounded up at his residence in Tirunelveli.
