Bench directs police to provide sufficient security to Divya

The love story of E. Ilavarasan and N. Divya may have reached a tragic end with the Dalit youth’s death, but his mortal remains are yet to be interred peacefully.

A Division Bench of Madras High Court on Friday directed the authorities to preserve Ilavarasan’s body so that a second autopsy, if needed, could be done. Another Bench directed the police to provide sufficient security to Divya, her mother and her brother.

On Friday morning, a Bench comprising Justices V.Dhanapalan and C.T.Selvam took up habeas corpus petition filed by A. Ramesh, who described himself as Ilavarasan’s friend. The petitioner sought a direction to the Dharmapuri District Collector to conduct the post-mortem examination either in the Government Hospital in Coimbatore or in Chennai by a team of doctors in the presence of the youth’s parents and a doctor of the petitioner's choice. He also wanted the autopsy to be video-graphed as per guidelines of the National Human Rights Commission.

I agree with you. Which sane non-medical person would be able to sit and watch a post mortem let alone a post mortem of his or her own child! It sounds terrible and macabre to me!

Can any parent be able to see the post mortem of their son? This is ridiculous. Even a doctor cannot bear to see his kith and kin post mortem.
