The last few calls made by E. Ilavarasan, the Dalit youth who was found dead along the railway track in Dharmapuri on July 4, reveal his tendency to commit suicide, police investigation has revealed.

Minutes before his death, the youth called two of his friends, one in Chennai and another in Chittoor, and expressed his frustration and anguish over being left alone. The two have given statements before the Judicial Magistrate confirming that Ilavarasan had called them to say that he was going to commit suicide, police sources told The Hindu on Thursday.

In his statement recorded by the Harur Judicial Magistrate Aseema Banu under Section 164 of Cr.PC, Karthik of Chittoor said Ilavarasan called him on July 4 morning and said he was alone consuming liquor behind the Government Arts College in Dharmapuri. He expressed his frustration and decision to commit suicide, the sources said.

According to Manoj Kumar of Chennai, Ilavarasan called him to say that he was going to commit suicide. He expressed serious concern over his wife Divya leaving him. “Kumar quoted Ilavarasan as saying that he saw Divya without her ‘thali’ in the Madras High Court and also laughing while walking away with her brother,” an investigator said.

When contacted, Dharmapuri Superintendent of Police Asra Garg said that though complete normality had returned to Dharmapuri, adequate security was given to the family of Divya and Ilavarasan.

No torture

Meanwhile, details of the second post-mortem examination done by a three-member team of doctors from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, are available. The autopsy report said there was no evidence of torture/physical violence on any part of Ilavarasan’s body.

The team headed by Dr. D.N. Bhardwaj, Professor and Head of the Department of Forensic Medicine and Toxicology, AIIMS, was of the unanimous opinion that the cause of death was extensive cranio-cerebral damage or head injury.

“The head injury as well as other injuries are ante-mortem in nature and will result in instantaneous death. The injuries mentioned including fatal injury could be caused by the impact of running train,” the team concluded.

The report said toxicological analysis of viscera had established consumption of alcohol in sufficient quantity to place him under its influence. The team perused 16 photographs and visited the scene of crime to arrive at a logical conclusion.

In this case, there is no legal marriage exists so that matrimonial obligations are also not exists. According to the copy of E. Ilavarasans school certificate his date of birth is 03.03.1993. Hence he was aged nineteen years at the time of alleged marriage in November 2012. This is a child marriage according to law and hence cannot be registered. There is no evidence exists to prove the marriage. They are not husband and wife.

If a husband ditched his wife, the law and society considers it as cheating and punishes husband. However if a wife ditched her husband, law and society consider differently. How did the learned judges allowed Divya to go with her mother despite her statement to judge that she has been treated by her inlaws well and she has no complaint about that. The learned judge should have informed clearly in legal terms that what she intends to do is totally against her matrimonial obligations per law and the reason for her leaving her husband (caste differences) is totally against law. In my opinion, the judges have mishandled the entire issue which in my opinion is illegality committed by Judges.
